... check out this guy's DIY carbon fiber frame.

Admittedly, the aesthetics are a bit rough but I've seen many a prototype from the big builders that were just as much if not moreso...

Damon Rinard has built his own CF bikes.

There are many recumbent/HPV builders dabbling in tubing with alloy and CF lugs...

Dunno how well Mr. Crammond's ride will hold up, but ya gotta appreciate the DIY and SOPWMTOS spirit!

Be the bike.

Yeah, I'd love to try something like that someday (I would kill myself if the result were that rough though!) But you gotta ask yourself: what was that guy thinking putting one pair of yellow spokes on each wheel?!!!

:^)

Make the bike.
