So why bamboo
Passchier use bamboo as it offers greater durability and natural flex than traditional handle bar materials, such as aluminium alloy, steel and carbon fibre. These flex and durability properties are as a result of the tree being exposed to the elements and waving around at everyone, at the hint of a breeze. This is the tree's equivalent of exercising and gaining strength, not unlike people going to the gym and biking.
In addition to this, the tree's natural cellulose structure absorbs vibrations naturally, which is exactly what you're after when you're riding gravel roads and undulating road surfaces. So with this attribute, handle bars which is the main point of contact, is the perfect bike component to be made of bamboo (certainly the riders bum has plenty of contact with the seat, however we considered this to be a bad idea!)
So handlebars made of bamboo it is¦ Ride on.
