Using any kind of fabric with epoxy is essentially the same as fiberglass or carbon fiber. Slightly different materials/strengths, same basic principle.

The bikes look nice, but would probably look nicer with some simple welds. Also, it's the wrong way around. Generally the joints are welded aluminum where as the tubes are carbon/fiberglass/bamboo. That's because the joints need to be extra strong, I'd be interested to see how long these hold up.

bamboo bikes built like that hold up fine, so as long as there is a barrier to prevent corrosion, it should work fine

When you buy raw fiberglass or carbon fiber cloth it is commonly referred to as fabric. The OP got his terminology right.
