Bamboo Bikes

This is just too cool to pass up posting about.  The people at Calfee Design sell bikes made out of bamboo.  I'm a big fan of wood things, particularly if they are finished with only an oil.  These bamboo bikes remind me a lot of what a wood bike looks like, but is probably a lot lighter.  I'd guess that they actually ride pretty nicely, a little bit of give to dampen vibrations, but stiff enough to transfer power?  Sounds like steel, just don't look at the price list!
