Our story began in a little studio in Beijing in 2009, following in the footsteps of a large art project to 'green' Beijing. It was short lived, but a wildly exciting experience to create a number of beautiful handcrafted bicycles in the city of 10 million bicycles. Within a year we found ourselves back in Northern California. Still curious and passionate, we decided to shift our artistic passion into full time fabrication. From 2009 to 2012 we crafted, experimented and dedicated our efforts towards creating sustainable bicycles with bamboo. Below are a few our builds from that era under Stalk Bicycles.
