i recently built myself a bamboo bike and this is how it turned out.
it’s not finished just as yet, as you can see it has no chain or rear sprocket. i am a little scared about the structural integrity of the stays so i am going to ride free wheel.
i am still waiting on a new head set which seams to be taking for ever.
the parts list:
-roselli carbon track forks
-velicty deep v wood finnish rims
I think good for you mate- there’s a chance that what you have come up with is great to ride, and it’s certainly completely unique. Plus there’s got to be satisfaction out of seeing a creative idea become reality. Just take it easy till you’re on prototype 3?
there is a pro riding the american cx circuit on a bamboo cross bike, its got lots of plus’s to it, all you haters need to do some reading, but then at the same time yuo wanna make sure you’ve dome everything right
Hey KingRalf, I’d love to know how that rides. Flexy? The diameters of the bamboo you’ve used look crazy small! I’ve been basing the diameters needed off aluminium/carbon bikes - yours looks like that of a steel frame! I’m loving the use of twine thou, I used a bit of that on my first frame and it’s held up well.
