This past December everybody’s favorite Swede, Fa(s)t Freddie paid us a visit. He spent a few weeks kicking around Chengdu ripping up the city streets on our Bamboo 1 demo bike. Needless to say he had a fine old time of it.
This bike looks like it’d be best suited for short trips around town. Maybe you could toss some light groceries in the basket and breezily wheel the short trips between errands. It’s best not to judge a book by it’s cover, though. With the svelte style of a European city bike, this mixte has all the accoutrements of a long distance bike.
I finally got around to building up a bike that suits my recent riding style. I haven’t been inspired to do long grinds on the road bike, nor have I wanted to throw myself into the thrum of city traffic. Instead I’ve taken to searching for those backroads, broken and muddy, to find a little solace on the bike.
Our most recent Bamboo 8 build, featuring a few worthwhile upgrades. Our pal Mark was delighted with the final result. His new bamboo whip is just what he wanted and is unlike anything in town.
