Entropy Resins – DIY Bamboo Bikes - Thanks Entropy! (July 2010)
Once we discovered Entropy Resins, we knew we had to meet the guys behind the great products. Long story short, we’ve become good friends with Desi and have put their Super Sap CLR to the test with our bike frames. We can say without a doubt that their bio-resin performs. It’s environmentally safe, doesn’t overwhelm the user with fumes (like conventional epoxy resin), and brings our frames one step closer to being completely organic. If you’re looking into epoxy resins, consider Entropy Resins’ Super Sap CLR as a great alternative.
