To replace the tube-shaped bicycle frame by two different materials : laminated bamboo and stainless steel : with two contrary properties to satisfy the needs of rigidity and tenacity for the structure of bicycle. The combination of laminated material not only makes the bicycle frame thiner and lighter. but also keeps the requisite strength and additional function of shock-proofing due to the characteristic of continuous bamboo fiber.
