This was my first bamboo frame built with hemp lugs. Making hemp lugs sucks, so from now on they're all carbon lugs. Hemp is almost impossible to sand, and it's quite a bit heavier than the carbon joints. This frame is soon getting turned into a single speed cross bike. As soon as I get a new rear wheel for it.

Wow. A testament to impractical bikes everywhere. Crazy expensive high-end parts from a randonneur, cross, track and road. Couldn't you have found a straight piece of bamboo at least?

A Shamal and a spinergy on any cross bike is bad, but this is just sad.

All your bikes are really gorgeous. Do you have details about building these frames anywhere?
