Testimonial Simon Parten, Switzerland
I took your frame, and built it into a unique looking ‘racing’ bike. It’s been a fun project, and as I say, the final bike gets plenty of looks and compliments.
It’s a very unusual piece that I intend to continue riding for a long time to come. The bike in that photo might be a bit dirty, as it’s just come back from a week tour of the Dolomites, where over 7 days, it climbed 11,307 vertical meters, and travelled 631KM (with an 85kg rider and another 10KG of gear).
The bamboo frame descended the ‘Passo San Pellegrino’ in excess of 70KPH at points – so I have trusted my life to it (after a suitable testing period I might add!), and lived to tell the tale.
I will say that I’m proud of the finished article. It’s something different, that certainly stands out from the carbon crowd – Simon Parten, Switzerland
