This is my first attempt of building a fixie out of bamboo and a chopped up old steel frame. I never really finished this project because of some design flaws, however I'm in the process of building a new one now, in my opinion much nicer. But I decided to post these pics for some feedback.
First step: chop the bike:
Second step: fit and spraypaint:
Third ste figure out a way to attach bamboo to frame, I used 5 minute epoxy and homemade pins. It proved to be a real stable connection:
Fourth step: mock up and extras, I made the bamboo seat post (not a good idea) and bamboo handlebars:
Fifth step: semi finished fixie:
I actually test road this bike and it actually worked. I just didn't like a few things about the frame. And by the way I am a mechanical engineer and I did do some calculations. Don't try this at home
