Bicycle frames are usually made out of materials like carbon fiber, steel or aluminum. But in rural Ghana, a businessman has developed another way to make bicycles using bamboo. The material does not get much respect in Ghana. Farmers think of bamboo as an unwanted plant that needs to be cleared from their land. Builders use it to support structures while they are being built. But Kwabena Danso thinks bamboo is much more valuable. He operates a business called Booomers International. His company makes bicycle frames out of bamboo. The bike parts are sent from Mr. Danso’s village to other countries, including Germany, the Netherlands and Australia. Kwabena Danso says bamboo can help a country like Ghana in many ways. He says he wants to, in his words, “get the people to know that there’s a great advantage to bamboo.” Young men from nearby villages come to work at Booomers International. They put together the bamboo frames. The company makes about 50 of the bicycle frames each month. The bamboo grows in the area. The workers sand the material to make it smooth. They put together the bamboo pieces to make the frame. The sticky substance they use to hold the pieces together is made of flour from the cassava plant. Mr. Danso says Booomers International provides good jobs to young men in the area. Mr. Danso’s business has received lots of orders for his bicycles. He says Booomers is ready for expansion. He hopes to have more of his bamboo frames not just in foreign countries, but also on the roads of Ghana.
