Frame Building Courses
Build your own bike frame
Can’t seem to find your dream bike? Why not build it yourself? I can show you how. Doesn’t matter if it’s a road bike, tourer, single speed, or mountain bike, with or without lugs. Before we start we talk about exactly what it is you’d like to build, what is realistic in the framework of the course you’d like to book, and fit the frame geometry to suit your riding style and body size. Then we start to cut tubes, and brazed them together with a torch. With the best steel from Columbus and Reynolds, and my know-how, you can do it. Yes, with me standing behind you, looking over your shoulder, you can actually build your own dream bike. Step by step as we take the tubes out of the box, and braze them together, piece by piece your dream becomes reality. A once in a lifetime experience!
Build your Bike.
We offer two basic frame building courses. In one course you build a frame with lugs (Lugged), which we recommend for most people building their first frame, and one without lugs (fillet brazed). In our third course you can build one of each of these types frames.

“Thanks for the awesome week! The frame building course was awesome, I can’t think of a better way to spend my vacation. The ‘work’ was really fun and I learned a ton. I’m really happy with how the frame turned out, and super proud that I actually built it myself. The geometry fits me perfectly and rides even better than I could have imagined!”
“Thanks again for the awesome week! The course was really fun and I am really proud of the frame I built. I think you are a great teacher. Always patient, you explained everything really well, and the ‘work’ of building the frame was never really like ‘work’ and I had a great time! :-)”
“Sorry for bothering you with pictures from my bike. I tested it today for the first time and it was fantastic. I usually do not tend to be super-enthusiastic and there were of course some minor issues (like getting the position of the saddle right etc) but this was by far the most convincing test-ride ever. Super stable, yet agile, very direct. I loved every second with it.”
