Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

An interior designer from India has created a new kind of bicycle that is truly green reports 14 WFIE.

From a distance, this looks like any other bicycle. But up close, you can see the frame is actually made from bamboo. The bamboo is held together with hemp fiber and resin.

The inventor of the “bambike” says it weights about seven pounds less than a normal bike with a metal frame. He also says the natural flexibility of bamboo gives the “bambike” the benefit of better shocks.

The bike isn’t in commercial production yet.

Right now it takes about 20 days to make a single bike, and costs about $200 dollars.
