What do you guys think about this bike, "Bamboocycles"
I've been following a small work shop in Mexico city that started selling Bamboo fixies, basically the guy took a workshop in France on bamboo and upon returning to Mexico wanted to buy a bike; so he said what the hell and built one himself with the knowledge gained at the workshop.
Naturally, I've found it very very interesting but I was put off by the initial price until after contacting them via FB I was informed there was a cheaper version coming out, one I could afford. The guy invited me over to the shop to test ride it and everything, seems pretty nice.
The creator is the one on the left:
I'd like to state I'm in no way affiliated with this, I've actually thought they were ridiculous at first because of the pricing but I guess they're realizing now that they are working in a third world country and steep prices aren't gonna work out too well. The thing is, I don't live in Mexico city but I could go I guess it's kinda near. The one thing that puts me off is the geometry, what's up with the sloping seat tube? I imagine toe overlap is gonna be a PITA.

So, what do you think? Would you buy it/ride it? I thought the "eco" aspect is just bad ass. "hey dude what are you riding?! freaking bamboo?" yeah!!
