    Calfee has been doing those for a couple of years, they were all the buzz when they first came out. Actually suppose to ride very nice, however they are a bit heavy. A bit pricey too... you'd pay several thousand.
    Carpe who?

    Actually, they use a carbon fiber bonded lug, or a Hemp fiber bonded lug assembly

    I won't even make any type of comment about the joints using hemp. Way too easy.

    I do wonder, though, if they'd thought of wrapping the joints in tobacco leaves and calling it the "blunt" edition???

    But hey, if you got stranded in the wilderness, you could always burn your bike for firewood to stay warm.
