Based on the Bamboo Bicycle Club long running workshop, this kit and guides included allow you to build a bamboo bike at home.
Bamboo Bicycle Club’s home-build kit enables you to build your own fully functional bicycle. The comprehensive guides will carefully coach you through the process step by step. The kits and guides are especially designed to suit all abilities, so you don’t need to be an expert.
The build kits are the ultimate DIY project, allowing you to create a bike which can be used for an everyday commute or competing in time-trails!
We offer custom frame designs, which will require you to complete a geometry chart (measure yourself). We can then customise a frame design to match your body.
Alternatively you can choose our standard small, medium, large, x-large frame sizes with road, hybrid or track frames. You can contact us for more information or help with picking a frame size by using the 'ask seller a question' button above.
The jig allows you to build the bicycle accurately. We have custom designed the jig and to keep the price of the kit down, we offer the jig only as a loan option.
The rental is for four weeks, however if you do need more time, that is no problem. As long as you let us know via your 'order enquiry', we are happy if it takes you a little longer.
A additional refundable deposit of £200 is required for the loan of the jig. This ensures that it is returned to us. As the customer, you will be responsible for returning the jig to us (via post/DHL, your choice of courier). However if you contact us via your 'order enquiry', we can arrange the collection and a standard £6.00 charge will be taken from your deposit. After we receive the jig, we will refund the deposit via the notonthehighstreet.com system, to your original method of payment.
The bike jig is a vital part of the kit to be able to build your bamboo bike. If you do have any questions about it, please contact us via the 'ask seller a question' button.
