What made you decide to build a bamboo bike?
I was in the market for a new gravel bike but also wanted something to focus on during lockdown and building my own bamboo frame ticked both boxes.
Did you enjoy building the bicycle from scratch and would you recommend the experience?
It's one of the most rewarding things I've done
What did you find most difficult about your bike build?
What was the easiest part of the build?
How would you describe the ride of your finished bike?
What would you improve about the build experience or your finished bike?
Next time I'd put the provision for internal cable routing in before tacking! I'd also like to see an option to build an 'Easy' Gravel Bike using the carbon lugs developed for the road frame. I like the aesthetics and it would mean you could knock up a frame in a weekend.
