"I have been riding for 30 years and it struck me that, as we learned from Star Wars, a Jedi’s skills are complete once they build a bicycle."
"It is surprisingly solid, and will take quite a bit of load. I like the seated position and the overall bouncy feel."
"I love it. The ride is so very smooth. I did wonder if it would be over-flexible but its wonderfully nippy whilst still being compliant."
"I thought it was a very nice challenge! I am a real “do it yourself person” and so this suited me completely."
"In the end, everything came together with a little bit of force but without too much trouble."
"I would recommend to anyone who enjoys building things but also prepared to take their time and prepared to keep an eye on precision."
"Building the bike from scratch has given me the knowledge and confidence to make any needed adjustments to improve the ride by myself."
"When it became time to retire my commuter bike I decided to build another bamboo bike to replace it."
"It's a project that I recommend to anyone interested in bicycles, on the road everybody turns their heads to look at the bike."
