My understanding from what I've read there hasn't been any issues with climate changes on Bamboo, and as far as I know all bamboo manufactures treat their frames with weatherproofing. Having said that I wouldn't ride it in the snow, but then again I wouldn't ride any of my bikes in the snow.very interesting and good read. it's incredible seeing organic materials being used for bikes that still have strength and rigidity. I wonder if climate or location rather would alter the lifespan of a frame like this. for example an area like wny where we face very cold temperatures, dry air and heavy snow in the winter months and hot temperatures, and very humid heavier air from the great lakes during the summer months. by no means am I hating on the idea I'm more or less just curious to how an organic material would hold up over time in seasonal climate changes.
