Bamboo cycling frame, anyone?


Recommended Posts

I'm going to try to test ride one. I'll let you know. Also need to find out how secure they are put together. I have a pre-conception that they don't seem very sturdy, but I probably need to be educated on the benefits of bamboo...

I'm fairly certain that the Chinese use bamboo for all kinds of heavy duty applications. I think I've seen photo's of hand & bike carts, hard hats & construction frameing - but that was on one documentary that I watched years ago so I'm not real sure...

The closest dealer is 250 miles away. And if I brought home a $2000 bamboo bike my wife would beat me with my graphite fly rod.

 

They really are intruiging though.

 

And a previous psoter was correct, in South East Asia and China bamboo is used for an incredible number of "heavy jobs" including building scaffolding.
