Geppetto is a key figure in the life of Pinocchio, but also a new bicycle concept. Just like Geppetto gave life to a wooden doll, Jef gives life to bamboo through his custom bikes. The special challenge of crafting bamboo is to find straight pieces that can be used to build a robust framework with, one you will be cycling on for many years. Geppetto Bicycles consists of a number of friends who, around a pizza and a few beers, decided to give this unique idea a go. 

Every Thursday Jef and his friends come together to go through their orders. They are always looking for new materials and methods to produce bikes that are as ecological as possible. For example, they are currently testing a peanut-based epoxy.
