Calfee Bamboo Pro, shown here with a SRAM Apex group, retails for just over $5000. Compare to a Campagnolo Super Record equipped Bamboo at $8500.
Our Bamboo Pro is as happy in a group race-ride as it is on gravel in a brevet. This frame weighs 5.5 pounds and retails for $2995. The hand wrapped hemp fiber lugs stop traffic; they resemble polished, highly figured burl wood and out-perform other methods and materials for joining bamboo tubing.
Each of our bamboo frames requires over 40 hours of labor to build. Following an interview with the frame’s new owner, we hand select a bamboo tube set that will deliver characteristics consistent with the riders expectations and requirements. Every frame is made to order and every frame is unique. All bamboo bicycles are available in stock or custom geometries.
Beautifully formed by our carbon craftsmen, our bamboo frames perform at the highest level of the sport.
Shown; Calfee Bamboo Mountain frame with a SRAM XX group, upgraded build kit featuring ENVE Composites seat post, carbon railed saddle, Mavic Crossmax SLR wheels and our BarStem weighs only 22 pounds. Ergon BioCork grips pair beautifully with our mocha brown bamboo tubes and are included in our complete Bamboo Mountain builds.
There are many good reasons to choose Calfee Bamboo for your next bicycle frame. Calfee Bamboo bicycle frames are very stiff, transferring power efficiently; are durable, resisting damage from stress and impacts; are comfortable, surpassing aluminum, steel, titanium and most carbon frames in smoothness. Our bamboo tubes mitered together and bound by epoxy soaked hemp fiber create a frame whose most notable characteristic, beyond beauty, is this incredible vibration dampening.
