After 11 years and more and more than 400 completed frames in our frame building course, I am really happy to announce our new course in building your own stainless steel road or gravel frame.  Your stainless frame will be built within the framework of the Fillet Brazed frame building course, however for your frame we will mostly be using Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing.   Your frame will be brazed with Silver, which is required for stainless steel.   Once you get the hang of it, brazing with silver is easier than brass.   It is also easier to file and sand, which sets you up to perhaps actually achieve the frame you’ve been dreaming of building yourself.   The course takes 5 days like most of our courses, costs 2250 Euro, and the material cost is around 1500 Euro.

To register for a course just fill out the form below, to complete the reservation I require a 500 Euro deposit.   Or, if you prefer, just send me an e-mail, also if you have any questions, to, and I can send the bill for the deposit via email.

For the frames I recommend the best steel from Columbus and Reynolds.

Material Cost

The material cost from frame to frame can be very different. Typically this is around 350 – 600 Euro, but can in some cases go up to around 700 Euro. The material cost for a stainless road or gravel frame is around 1500 Euro.
