Alright after going through the previous threads I decided to make my own and maybe try to consolidate a the information into one place.
Just to preface, I'm not an experienced cyclist let alone frame builder. So anything that I may suggest is just my opinion. This thread is also to document my build process so others can use it for reference.
My goal is to build a bamboo frame and I think I've got a pretty good understanding but there are some parts that I could use some clarification. Firstly the seat post, is it just slid straight into the bamboo with the locking collar at the top?
Also for the bottom bracket is it best to get a lugless and weld or attach some mounts for the bamboo to slide onto just for increased rigidity. If this is the case what would the best method for this be? Or would it be easier to just chop an old frame up?
Also for the rear triangle are there any good methods for alignment? I plan to build a cheap jig (maybe something like this http://www.instructables.com/id/Almo...rame-building/ ).
