I started the build last winter and it taught me a heap of new skills as well as giving a real appreciation of how a bike is put together. I'd recommend that every keen cyclist tries it once!
"The bike rode unlike anything I had ridden before. It was a little flexy, but in a good way. The vibration dampening was next level. I have ridden both titanium and steel bikes before and compared to those, the bamboo I'd say feels similar. A trials bike doesn't need comfort, but if you're building something you plan on riding long distance, building a bamboo bike might be your best bet for the money"
"I really enjoyed selecting the bamboo. I wanted a frame that looks like the raw bamboo and there were so many options for each tube. I never knew there was so much variety in the the bamboo. I also enjoyed the cutting of the tubes to fit the Jig. Seeing the frame come together on the jig was really satisfying."
"It is great that you are able to make something with your own hands using a few simple tools."
“In comparison with steel frame, you only have to glue the tube together instead of weld it. It is very easy and It is easier to get a straight frame.”
“The most fun part was planning out the geometry and setting it up on the jig, cutting the bamboo and seeing the frame come together.”

“I already own a bamboo bike which I had purchased on a trip to Ghana, and I really love it.”
“I wanted a bike that would stand out from the multitude of carbon super bikes that all look the same when they are whizzing past you.”
