The Kumasi Investment Day in NY that MCI organized has generated quite a bit of interest in bamboo bikes, including a potential investor in Ghana. This has sparked a flurry of activity here at Bamboo Bike Project. Marty Odlin and his engineering team has been busy designing, building, and testing five prototype bicycles. After they are satisfied, three bikes will be built and send off to Ghana for demonstration. The ultimate goal is to build a factory where ca. 20,000 bikes will be produced each year.
The team looks forward to an autumn of hard work, late nights, and the sweet smell of fresh bamboo.
