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.
