“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 ... It's one of the most rewarding things I've done.”
"Reading the stories and watching videos in which cyclists were riding bamboo bicycles on dirt roads assured me that building a bamboo gravel bike is definitely possible."
Tamas built his bamboo commuter at a 4 day workshop. Hear how he found the build and what he thinks about his finished bike!
"Real bike enthusiasts immediately spot this unique one-of-a-kind bike. You will always end up having a nice chat with a stranger."
"...bamboo gives the bicycle a great deal of stiffness. Something I had not thought beforehand. I cycle to the office with it every day."
"Like riding on a cloud, until this bike I never understood how much a difference frame flexibility makes."
"As someone who has almost no experience in woodwork, building in general or fitting up a bike, it was really an amazing experience and I learned so much."
"Super smooth, really planted on corners and zero road buzz. It is heavy compared to carbon but I will happily sacrifice this for the pleasure of riding it."
"I enjoyed the challenges presented. It wasn't as straight forward as I thought, and I liked having to figure out how to make it work."
