Man makes bicycle out of bamboo

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (NBC/EBU) — A Slovenian man was watching TV and got inspired.

That’s when he decided to make a bamboo bicycle for himself.

The bike works like any other, but the frame is made of bamboo.

The inventor used bamboo and hemp to make his creation.

It’s lighter than a normal bike and perfect for riding in the hilly country.

He plans to make one for regular road cycling, too.
