Two questions:

Are there instructions for building a cargo bike out of bamboo?

Apart from bamboo bikes being a strangely organic, cool and hands-on experience, isn't this sort of like jerking off in a room full of nubile nymphets????

They are using carbon fiber to bond the tubes together on the bamboo bikes. The one in the photo looks lumpy. The Calfee bamboo bike is more organic in it's bonding material choice and more attractive. Of course you loose the experience of building your own frame.

Still, it's a pretty cool concept.

They sure aren't pretty, are they.
The eye of the beholder, I suppose...

I can pretty much guarantee my first welded frame wouldn't be all that pretty, either. And certainly wouldn't get any second looks on the street, if that's what I was after.

i wonder how long that would last. i dont see how this would stand up to years and years of riding. even if it is just urban riding.
