30 Bananas a Day!

i race on it.
carry fruit with it.
ride to visit grandma.
ride to keep fit and see new places.

made by craig calfee in california. hemp and epoxy form the joins.

its the best riding road bike ive owned. super plush yet stiff enough for racing and max climbing efficiency. double the weight of my last cannondale but way more character and more eco.

not the bike you want to ride if you want to keep to yourself..i have up to 50 conversations a day just on the bike! its insane. great way to meet people and spread the health and cycling message.


stats of my bike.
wheelset :36 hole velocity aerohead with off center rear rim. green chris king hubs.

groupset : 10 speed dura ace.

tyres: racing, vittoria open corsa kx. training and touring : specialized armadillo all condition.

handlebars and stem: modolo 42cm c -c. pro pilot stem. 110m

pedals: shimano xtr. i run xc shoes cos they are more practical and cleats last longer. no performance decrease over road shoes.

power meter: powertap pro.

seat: specialized toupe 130mm with titanium rails.
seat post: pro pilot cut down. as light as easton ec90 but a heck of a lot stiffer. and only 30$ vs 400$!!

special notes. i use a liquid paper pen to mark my seat height and bar placement incase it slips and i need a reference point. same with my pedal cleats. i mark em.

That's a cool looking bike!
this is very nice indeed, dr.

when you say super plush in the same sentence as being stiff, are you saying that the ride is a forgiving one? if so, that's very interesting one can have the best of both worlds.

in friendship,
i havent tested its stiffness in a jig or nothing but it feels pretty good up the same climbs ive been riding for over 10 years..

very supple over the ruff stuff.. :)
my bamboo baby got stolen recently in georgetown penang, malaysia..

i ducked into a shop and came out and nada! i even had the bob trailer on too!

oh well at least its still getting used somewhere and might inspire some bamboo frame and trailer builders here in south east asia..

having no insurance, it was a good lesson in detachment. material possessions come and go, but our health and happieness are most important. :)

what you say is reminiscent of my grandfather's experience many decades ago. one day he came home loaded with east indian sweets. everyone asked what was this was about and he said it was time for a celebration. they asked what they were celebrating. he said his wallet had been stolen along with the money in it.

they didn't understand so he explained that the person who had taken the wallet probably needed the money badly and now was likely making good use of it. so in celebration of that person's success, he wanted everyone to enjoy themselves.

in friendship,
That is so cool!
