Bamboo Transporter / Bamboo bicycle extension

Bamboo Transporter
Bamboo Transporter

Our sustainable and locally made bamboo long-tail extension kit transforms a typical African farmer’s bicycle into a cargo carrying transportation tool. By making an extension kit that fits on existing bicycles rather than designing an entirely new bike, we can offer a very affordable solution. It can be used by African farmers who live in poverty to increase their income from the sale of their crops.
