Bamboo Lattice

Our friends at Factory Five are big fans of quality bikes, parts and equipment.  They’re the cool cats behind the Lattice Chainring, one of the lightest, most stylish track chain rings on the market.

They recently spotted our most recent post and were moved to do a little write-up on how well their ring goes with our bamboo frames.  Match made in heaven if you ask us.

Be sure to follow their blog!

Bicycles & Marriage…

Go together like a horse and carriage.  This bike was custom-built for our buddy Matt in Shanghai as a gift from his caring girlfriend.  Let’s just say he loved his new bamboo ride so much he couldn’t help but ask his girlfriend to marry him.

Our shipping rates are tough to beat.  But for some, it’s just worth the trip to Chengdu to see where it all started.  Don’t believe us?  Here are a couple happy customers with their new bamboo bikes.
