The MMFG bamboo frame was introduced as a more affordable option to the MMFG bicycle frames. After years of studing the material I've decided to take my own spin to bamboo bicycles in hopes to raise the bar of the bamboo bicycle standard. The MMFG bamboo frames are made from localy grown bamboo poles, meticulously hand selected to bring you the best bamboo bicycle frame possible at a reasonable price. Once they arrive at the shop, the poles get heat treated and go under a second inspection to verify that they are safe to proceed the frame building process. The resulting product is a beautiful handcrafted bicycle frame made 100% in Los Angeles, CA.
The base price for a MMFG bamboo frame is $1200. The frame is made with aluminum metal parts (Bottom Bracket English 63mm, 44id Head tube, 35 mm Seat tube) wrapped in carbon fiber lugs. Fork, headset and seat collar are not included. Different model options and materials are available:
