"Ride-wise, it is exactly what I was hoping for - quick, light, nimble and smooth."
"I love it. I am proud of it whenever I ride it. It's my favourite bike by far. And I love the comments."
"It was good fun thinking about all the details of a bike from geometry to picking bamboo to parts to choosing colours."
"Building one myself out of bamboo seemed far more exciting than buying something ‘off the shelf’"
"I absolutely enjoyed the build. I didn’t rush it and it took me around 10 hours to build!"
"It reminded me of how satisfying and absorbing it can be to build something from scratch."
"I wanted to see if I could build a bike including the frame."
"A thrilling and at times thought-provoking process."
"Very smooth and compliant and absorbs vibration very well."
"I simply love it, and I am happy every time i drive it. I am really proud that i build a bike by myself, and it gets a lot of attention. Its my most loved object that i own!"
"It rides way better than I expected, smooth and comfy takes away the harshness of the roads. I've not ridden my carbon bike since finishing it!"
I got to join the commuters on a Cycle Superhighway, and enjoyed keeping up with the more athletic ones.
"When I'm riding the bike I have the added satisfaction of knowing it's been put together by me."
"Think big with what you can do with your finished bike. These frames are capable of anything."
"What makes it special is the fact that I made it myself."
