Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
how much does the finished largest size bike weigh?
This will depend mostly on your choice of components - carbon, alumnimum, steel. The frame itself will weight in around 4.5lbs.
Are you making a fat tire version
Fat tire bikes are always wecolme. A couple of builders have built fat tire frames using the custom road kit in the past. This is a good option if you want to design a custom geometry and get the full experience of mitering bamboo tubes.
We can also modify a standard road kit to work with the fat tire design. This would require some additional bamboo (+$15) and extra work on your end, as the chainstay and seat stay bamboo would need to be cut differently to accomodate the wider tires.
Let us know what you'd prefer. We look forward to working with you on a build!

The Standard Road Kits do not require additional tooling. You will need to buy your own epoxy. Please read through our FAQ page for epoxy specifications and suggestions.
