Bamboo bike project

Recommended Posts

So my project for my engineering design class was a bamboo bike. Local (nj) bamboo, torched and baked. Joints made of individually wrapped strands of carbon fiber. CNC'd dropouts, hand machined bottom bracket, head tube, seat adjuster. Hope you guys like it.

That is awesome!!

I need one now. I was just riding home when some young chick decided to gun the throttle as I passed in front of her. Needless to say my bike is totaled and I'm hurting like hell.

So if anyone has an awesome road bike let me know.

Again Such an awesome bike great work!!!

I am gonna be riding mine fixed, the left side drive was half accident. We accidentally put the bottom bracket housing in backwards, and upon realizing that the left side chainstays were thicker anyway we decided to run with it and build it left side drive.

what size do you need? I have a 52cm? Miyata, but its old and I think a 12 speed. Haven't ridden in about 7 years though, so I can't remember. It was about 1000 new, but I'd love to give it a new home.
