We have covered making a bamboo bike once or twice before. OK, maybe more like 3 or 4 times! What can I say, we <3 bicycles! Here is yet another DIY bamboo bike frame, however the construction of this one is a bit different. What really caught my attention on this build was the use of paper templates for cutting all the miters. It’s a really cool technique that allows the bamboo to hide almost all the structural metal parts, making this the ultimate Gilligan’s Island ride. Very cool!
