Bamboo Bike mock-up

Bamboo Bike mock-up, originally uploaded by Xvelo Designs.

Holy cow, my first post in what seems to be years… Here it is; This is the Cycles Xvelo Bamboo bike mock-up. So far the plan for this bike will be a single ring up front with some 8 speed internal rear hub. I’ll throw some canti brakes on and some 30c tires and see where I can go from there. Bamboo is a bit weird to work with as it’s more like shop class in junior high. I have the wood working one week and then “plastics” the next. You can see by the shop floor that carbon and Kevlar are not the cleanest things to work with.
Bike should be done by weeks end and pedaling shortly there after, I’ll post results of my broken teeth…
