If the big bike builders of the world can do it, why can us smart little guys do it as well! Geeks unite to make the world a better place.

This is amazing. Obviously, you need to know a bit about frame geometry, which the author doesn't spend time on, but it's easy enough to clone a successful geometry, and this is commonly discussed in bike circles. The bamboo frame is delightful, and no doubt an instant conversation starter. Innovative, practical AND DIY-able. Perfect instruct able. I've worked with fiber, but it never occurred to be that building a bike was achievable.

I have always wanted to build a bamboo frame and work with carbon fiber on a bike frame. This will be a great help.
