Frame Building Courses

by Dunluce   April 13, 2014  

I visited Bespoked this weekend and one of the things that caught my eye was the frame building courses, but I'm wondering is it really possible? Has anyone out there done one and what is your opinion? What actual quality of frame do you come out with?

Our very own Dave did a course at the bicycle academy. I am planning on it at some point.

Of course it's possible! I may be wrong about the number but something like 500 candidates have passed through Bicycle Academy since it opened over two years ago and the word on the street is that the experience is well worth the money. Of course, what you produce is entirely down to your own aptitude & hard work but they'll certainly give you all the help and experience. No, I've not been YET but I know plenty who have and I follow the social media feeds of happy smiling apprentice framebuilders with their first projects. Inspiring, I have to say and personally cannot wait to sign up.
