Hi, I hope your question is still actual...
I used ~500g resin and ~300g hemp fiber for this bike:

I used about 600g of hemp fiber, and about 800g of resin (but I have too much resin in my joints).

Depending on the diameter of the hemp fiber - 1.5mm, probably purchase 2 rolls of 100 meters, probably the same with 3mm (you may not use it all, but better to have a bit left than run out). If you go smaller diameter (I wouldn't), you'll need more. 1 liter of epoxy with 1/2 liter hardner, if you go with a 2/1 ratio epoxy mix, should be plenty.
