The driving force behind Bamboosero is Craig Calfee. Craig has been building bikes since 1987. And bamboo bikes since 1995. Bamboosero sprung from a “crazy” idea to bring the idea of bamboo bicycles to Africa. Craig realized he could leverage his experience and reputation for quality in order to realize such a challenging dream. Since then, the idea has grown and gathered momentum as we’ve added partners.
Calfee has designed numerous types of bicycles using bamboo. Including, a track show bike, tandem bicycles, dutch bikes, an award winning road bike, as well as various other styles of bamboo bicycles. These are examples of the versatility, performance, and beauty bamboo brings to cycling.
I am the newest edition to the Bamboosero sales/management team. I have been working in the bicycle industry for more than 8 years. I enjoy racing cyclocross bikes in Santa Cruz and playing disc golf in the woods. After a random visit to tour the Bamboosero facility, Craig and I started working together and we haven’t looked back since. Please let me know how I can help make your Bamboosero experience one to remember.
“I was born in Mexico and have been in the USA since 1991. I met Craig Calfee through some friends and have been working for him for 10 years now. It’s an art working with natural things like the bamboo. I enjoy working with it and with this company.”
