We've been working with, and RIDING bamboo for so long that to us it's OBVIOUS why its such an excellent framebuilding material. However, we forgot to explain why to YOU!!!
Bamboo has excellent DURABILITY and VIBRATION absorbing qualities, making it more comfortable than aluminum, safer than carbon, and perfect as a daily rider or training bike, just like a custom steel frame. In fact, riding a bamboo frame feels almost EXACTLY like riding a high-end lugged steel frame. So why Bamboo over steel? Because the natural variation in size/wall thickness of bamboo tubing allow us to custom select a tubing set that fits your body size/weight perfectly, unlike steel where there are limited tubesets to choose from. This also allows us to better control the ride characteristics according to the wishes of the customer, by including an oversized downtube for example, or more flexible seat stays. Whatever you want!
Not to mention the fact that it's environmentally friendly...
