Bamboo Cargo Bike (2016-2017)
From the successful Hayili design from 2015-2016 team, our second model from team 2016-2017 inherits all the successful features. Not just so, our new model is now bigger and stronger. It can carry a load of 150kg in addition to the rider, in a cargo volume of 350 Litre. To improve structural integrity of our bike frame, we have introduced Vacuum Infusion Pump into our joints making process which helps to achieve perfect mixture between hemp and resin.Safety, ease of use and high maintainability level are maintained through the use of hybrid differential system with disc brake for both the front and rear wheels, and new derailleur gearing system with 7 gear compared to 3 in Project Hayili. The current model was completely built in less than 5 days at Bamboo Bicycle Club and University College London. Check our posts for more details of our building phase.
