Dying to know how this bike rides

I saw these bamboo frames a while ago and have been dying to know how they ride and feel. Think that the idea is wild to say the least, and am very curious on your impressions.

Bamboo frames

I used to ride a steel frame. I was hesitant at first of switching to a bamboo track frame until i finally realized how stiff, smooth, and fun of a ride they are. I ride it everyday (including tricks) with no worries for about 4-5 months so far.

Diemeters of bamboo

It seems to be very strong. I am going to build up one bamboo frame. Could you let me know what the diemeters of those bamboos are?

Yeahhh it's probably a good

Yeahhh it's probably a good idea to have a trick fork on a bike made of a species of grass.

This bike... just waiting to fail epically. That hot weather in texas is going to expand that wood over and over until it warps and explodes. It's just like a bamboo or maple baseball bat. When exposed extreme heat or cold, it will expand or contract and it will eventually break.

The frame can withstand it

The frame can withstand it so i see nothing wrong with it. It gives a great feel to the ride
