A mixte with hemp joints

 

I made this to be auctioned as a fundraiser for the Washington Area Bicycle Association. This is the first frame I’ve done with hemp joints rather than carbon fiber. It’s heavier and more bulky, but very strong. The parts for the entire bike cost less than $250 (not including the saddle).  It’s got a 2-speed kick-shift coaster brake internally geared hub.
