I have finalized my modified design for straight bamboo tubing and completed the switch to bamboo as my material. After hours of research on the various ways bamboo can be used for a bike frame I felt comfortable that I could execute a design I would be satisfied with that will meet my intentions for the project. Thusly, I placed the order for the bamboo of appropriate lengths and acquire hemp twine for all the joints. I also ordered a head tube, dropouts and various other bicycle components I don’t already have that will work with my bamboo design. I am still researching epoxies and searching for the correct one at the right price which will accomplish my goals.
