I'm finally (almost) done with my bamboo utility bike. I'm still going to make some fenders and a chainguard.
But it's on the street and so far so good. She rides surprisingly like a bicycle.
Here is the tread about its construction. Take a close look at ChiapasFixed's longtail, damn that is a nice utility bike.
She is a bolt upright, 700c balloon tire cruiser, 70º head and seat tubes, 31 inch stand-over, 24 inch effective top tube length.
Black bamboo and hemp fiber lugs.
One thing I've noticed, it does not trigger traffic lights at all.
Internal gear hub
Dynamo front hub
Frame mounted front & rear racks
Center pull Canti brakes
The cable guides popped off during construction, they are glued back into place. I used the white tape to hold them as the glue dried and did not remove it because I'm going to change the guides out for a different type that are on order. If I leave the tape in place I'll change them out because it bothers me. If I removed the tape I would not change them out for the better set, out of sight out of mind.
