Bamboo. Would you?

While shopping this weekend I came across this oddity in a bookshop. 

I have heard of bamboo being used for bike frames before but never saw one in the flesh. Looks interesting. 

It’s light(ish) but not super-light at 11.5kgs. 

At 1k CHF it’s way out of my budget. I wonder if these will ever turn up second hand?? Never saw one before…

Has anyone ridden a bamboo frame? I would love to hear about it.

  1. I think they are beautiful, like a work of art . . . well, most high-end bikes I feel that way. I haven’t ridden one, but I have seen one and picked it up and felt of the frame. It is not for me. It looks too . . . hipster? And for what I could spend on that, I could buy something I’d really like. JMO šŸ™‚

    • It’s definitely quirky. Like you, I would rather buy something fundamentally good than make a point about sustainability. But maybe they are good? I’ve never met anyone who could say first hand!

      I think hipsters would much prefer a vintage Bianchi. Rightly so. šŸ˜Ž

So, what do you think?
