This will be my last update on the current iteration of this frame. I have ridden it all year on some rough gravel roads and paved mountain roads. The strength of the bamboo has held up extraordinarily well. The Orthotape wrap has remained intact as well and no signs of fatigue. I don't have any immediate plans to replace this frame, since, it has done so well so I figured I would do one last official update of it here. My plans are to continue using this current iteration next year.
I will continue posting related bamboo bike building notes in the coming months as well as any frames made in one of my workshops etc.
