    As enthralling an experience as crafting it - smooth and keeps you on your toes (you never know what some terrains will feel like underwheel - but nothing has ever gone wrong or ever ended in disaster - much like the build). 10/10

    I'd probably read up more on the process first, as this would have sped up the build significantly, and also made it clearer what impacts the finish of the bike. I'd have probably spent way less time finishing the frame if I'd been more careful wrapping the flax for my lugs!

    The easiest part of the build would be shaping the ends of the bamboo. It took a lot of time as I only had 80 grit sandpaper, but it was easy.

    I was looking at traditional frame building courses and came across Bamboo bikes so I then started to do my research and " The Bamboo Bicycle Club" kept appearing. After reading many articles this sounded like an excellent way to build a bespoke frame and learn some new skills.

    The experience was great. I enjoyed every moment of the workshop. James was an excellent teacher. The finished bike is exactly the result I expected. A manual for fitting the components yourself would be a very useful addition to the course.
