What made you decide to build a bamboo bike?

I’ve always liked bikes and cycling and I wanted a project and something that would challenge me.

Did you enjoy building the bicycle from scratch and would you recommend the experience?

I really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend it.

What did you find most difficult about your bike build?

Probably getting the cranks to fit as there was a slight bend in the frame which meant there wasn’t enough clearance.

What was the easiest part of the build?

Cutting and sanding the bamboo and fitting it to the jig was pretty straightforward.

How would you describe the ride of your finished bike?

I was a bit scared at first that it was gonna crack or fall apart but it’s pretty good and it’s smooth.

What would you improve about the build experience or your finished bike?

I wish it didn’t take so long but I think that’s my fault really. I don’t think I’d change anything about the finished bike because what makes it special is the fact that I made it myself.
