Bamboo bikes made by a Chinese man’s team will be exhibited at this year’s Paris Fashion Week, to be held from June 19 to 24, Chengdu Business Daily reported.
Abu, a local in Sichuan province whose real name is Ren Yao, introduced that the bamboo bikes have outstanding shock absorption and are strong enough to easily support an adult’s weight.
The bikes have already reached the European bicycle industry standard, Abu noted. In fact, he spent 30 days riding 2,500 kilometers on his bamboo bike from Chengdu to Lhasa.
“Compared with bamboo bikes seen before, nothing is as amazing as yours,” commented a global fashion expert who recommended the bikes be exhibited at the global fashion event.
“Through this exhibition, I hope to make more and more people around the world see Chinese-made and Chengdu-made products,” said Abu, adding that this exhibition is just the beginning.
Bamboo bikes made by the team have already been exported to many countries including the U.S., Britain, Singapore, Canada, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
