Polish Lynx, African Bamboo

  August 21, 2015

Lynx Bicycles is a Polish brand that wants to elevate the status of bamboo bikes while helping to create jobs in Africa. Lynx sources its bamboo frames from Zambikes, a nonprofit that runs a bike building facility in Zambia. The handmade bamboo frames take up to a month to create. The goal is to use bikes as an economic development tool in rural Africa.”This was one of the most important factors when we chose Zambikes to source our frames,” say the founders of Lynx.
