So I've been looking for a project and here seems to be something, African Bicycle Design Contest. The idea is to come up with a design for bicycles that are sustainable, can make use of locally available materials and so on and so forth. It looks interesting to make it past the bamboo bike. That design looks like it would work but it doesn't explain why it costs 2 grand(yeah that's right).
I really need to get into the bones of this page and get the layout I want.
