Pro vs Home Jigs

Pro vs Home Jigs


For many frame builders the jig is their most essential bit of kit. It allows a frame builder to align a frame, ensure the wheels spin and check if everything is squared up. At Bamboo Bicycle Club, we’ve been building and designing custom bamboo specific jigs for the last 10 years. So for our first series finale live #workshopwednesdays session, we introduced our audience to our workshop and home build jigs! We took our audience through some of our best practices and how to use these jigs.

Our live #workshopwednedays videos will help you to learn more about bamboo bicycles, tips and tricks on how to fit components, maintain your bike and how to be creative with bamboo. Hosted by James Marr, a bicycle designer and an engineer, James goes live every other Wednesday to help you learn about building a bamboo bicycle and takes your questions and announces promotions and deals of the week!
