This looks brilliant - when's the road.cc review?!

nice looking bikes. it's long been noted that bamboo has excellent mechanical properties for a bike, and there's a guy that rides a home made bamboo/carbon machine at bristol bike fest every year (a lot faster than me).

if we can get hold of one to test, then we certainly will.

Ive seen quite a few similar machines when travelling through thailand and malaysia. With aluminium joints (headtube and bottom bracket area) making sizing easy and repairs easy.

not all carbon is the same.

I love the fixie they have built with real steer horns as handle bars and some birch wood rims. Bonkers!

It's not just about the size of your cog.
