    Hi, a friend sent me this link
    https://bamboobicycleclub.org

    Anyone have any experience? It looks like you build yourself?
    I guess a lot depends on your skillz!??!
    Cheers

    Home build, well established by the time I got round to it. No affiliation with them but happy to recommend. The new frames with the 3d printed lugs look good.

    This is/was mine. Since further modified with multiple frame bosses for bike packing duties.

    @jonno101 £20 on a digi sub will get you access and might save you that and more in mistakes and therapist fees if you’re not if the handy craft type! At the very least, when you think it’s going wrong, you’ll be able to say ‘well, it’s not as bad as Wil’s’ 🙂

    Built mine four years back. Take it methodically, watch the videos BBC have done and it’s all good. Biggest thing is not to panic when it feels like it’s going wrong. Step away, retrace your steps and go again.

    It’s flat barred and much pinker now, but this is/was mine. I’m not a roadie but it rides lovely.

    Yes, I built my fatbike in 2016 and it’s going strong. Talk to James at ‘BBC’ and tell him what you want, he’ll advise. If you build it a weekend workshop he’ll do a custom CAD design, or he has a range of homebuild kits, based on carbon lugs (more recently than my build which was epoxy/hemp wrapped joints.) Tandem, cargo, MTB, gravel, wheelchair, anything is possible.

    Yes, but the STW bamboo special builder didn’t set up his jig correctly, so the end result was “sub optimal”!🙂 https://singletrackworld.com/2018/07/bamboo-sweat-and-tears-building-a-bamboo-bike/
