OK, since I finally have the time, I think I'm gonna give bamboo bikes a go. Since the original thread seems to have gone, I figured I'd start a new one for my questions, so here goes.
1) Does the bamboo have to be any special type, or can I use generic stuff?
2) I've heard references to "heat treating" the bamboo. If I buy stuff that's already been dried, is this necessary?
3) Is it possible to use bamboo for the fork blades?
Thanks in advance
