Bamboo Bike Studio Kits


Perfect for DIYers who want to build a bike in the comfort of their own homes, and at their own pace. Our kits come with the materials, tools, and instructions needed to walk you through our bike-making process. Our kits are also popular in schools, and are used to teach high school and middle school students how to build a bike of their own.
Our kit relies on the same process that we use in our workshops. Using our kit you’ll begin your bike by setting up your bike-making jig and tacking your bamboo tubes into place. Once completed, you’ll shape the lugs where your bamboo tubes meet. You’ll then wrap your tubes together fibers and resin, and let the bike sit till the epoxy hardens. You’ll then remove your frame from the jig, and file down your lugs to a smooth finish. After applying a final coat, you can install your components (purchased separately), or take your frame to your nearest bikeshop and have your components installed for you.
While kit-building times vary, we’ve found that the average build takes between 20-30 hours.
