$15,000 goal met in three days for build your own bamboo bike kit

Bamboobee build it yourself kit beats Kickstarter goal

Bamboobee’s Kickstarter project, which with a pledge of just $169 will see users supplied with a build your own frame kit, has been upgraded to include Disc and Belt drive options.

Having smashed its $15,000 funding goal in three days, Bamboobee’s Kickstarter is now aiming for the sky with a new $150,000 goal. Referral to friends will also now earn customers a discount of anything up to 15 per cent.

The kit, which comes with a self assembled frame jig, as well as the tubes cut to your preferred frame size, should take around three days to fully assemble and set. 

Three sizes are available; Small for those of around 5ft 7in or below, medium for those around 5 ft 7in to 5ft 11in and large for anyone above 5 ft 11in.

Due to shipping legislation the only ingredient not included in the kit is the epoxy solution needed to bond the tubes with the hemp fibres used at the joins.
