    It is still a good practice to avoid the extremes of cross chaining but as said, modern equipment shouldn't fail.

    On a very slight downhill, I've pedaled up to ~36

    On a steady downhill - ~40

    On a steep and short, straight downhill - 48 for a few seconds, but well over 45 for a good part of the downhill.

    Bamboo is the least of your concerns. You need the carbon fiber and the proper skill to use it and all the machines to make the rest of the frame. I'd imagine this took a ton of work.
