Wow... those bikes are sexy!
I never even thought that people would actually consider a MTN frame from a tree lol. I always knew Bamboo was tough, but dang... that mountain bike has been tried and true, and raced several times for like 5 years.
I was wondering the same thing Ed, how would it hold up for DH? If they used thicker bamboo (there's a solid species of bamboo... saw that from the frame builders section as well, someone is trying to build a fork out of bamboo, triple crowned.) then it should still be lighter than Aluminum, but just as strong?
Bamboo fibers for clothing wierd!
