The main problem is flammability. If you ride through an open flame, Phooooof....there goes your bike. Also, if you crash and get that bamboo under your fingernails, boy, does it hurt!!!!

Seriously though, it could never really be trusted as a frame material, in that I don't think you could really detect imperfections that would weaken the material, though I could be wrong. I look forward to the guys ride report though. The frame looks cool.

Oh yeah, and I wonder what it weighs......
