I think they are making them in Evergreen Alabama. There was a tv show illuminating some company going green with a variety of projects and a bamboo bike production was amongst them.

Oh, my gosh! This is awesome! There are Bamboo Bicycle Kits that for making do-it-yourself bamboo bikes! I think this is pretty neato!



And there's a cool story about the Life Cycle ride, which was done on a bamboo bike.



Slightly off topic, but I think this wooden bike is pretty cool, too!
