Home Built Frame(6 posts)

I would love to build my own Bicycle Frame. This would be strictly as a hobby. I Would not expect to save money, nor would I want to re-sell it. I would apprecitate any suggestions from someone who has done this, or has any information on how I can learn how to do this.

Thanks:

Daniel

Try www.hottubes.com
You can go there, take a frame building class and you build your own frame for yourself. Pretty reasonable too! $1750 for the class, materials, and manual! That's a killer deal and you get to say you built your own frame!! It sounds great if you can get the time off! Hope this helped you.
Take care.

This list is frequented by and contributed to by some of the premiere builders around the world as well as tons of home builders and experimenters. Aside from access to links to helpful sites (from members), a lot of free information... and occasional parts (got over $900 retail dollars worth of stuff from a well known frame builder for $10 shipping and a jersey) come down the pike.

If you're a beginner, tinkerer, experimenter or pro... this is one list to be on.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Check out the following link for some info.

Lots of info on the web to help. Of course subscribe to Framebuilders and READ the archive before posting. I've made six frames so far in my garage and enjoy it. Quite cheap once you gather the tools.
