Workshop für Bambusrahmen

Bamboo bike frame Workshop

Award   WINNER 2016
Category   Concepts & Services
Company   BAM Original

Since 2014 we offer workshops for bike frames made of bamboo in Munich and Ingolstadt. During two days our customers build there own, perfectly fitting bike frame. Together we figure out what kind of bike and handling every individual customer prefers. At the first day of the workshop, the whole frame gets integrated in the special frame rigs we developed. All the parts made of bamboo and metal get glued together. At the second day the sleeve of the frame get wrapped with carbon in a special way to obtain the stability we need. We started a cooperation with the „Technische Universität München". to test our frames and compare them to other (DIN EN 14781). We also can complete the bikes.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Functionality
  • Workmanship
  • Price/ performance
  • Added value

Jury Statement

Frame-building courses are currently very popular with bike fans. Using bamboo as its main material, this concept offers an interesting new approach that poses fascinating new challenges for the amateur constructor.
