    Where to learn?

    Where does one learn this trade? Always been curious since I'd like to build custom bikes someday,

    first, read the FAQ

    UBI, Doug Fattic, David Bohm, and others teach framebuilding. Link to a thread about schools/clinics in the FAQ

    I was out on some local single-track one day and befriended a fellow single speeder. Turns out he's a frame builder and now I'm learning and building my first frame! I know that's not really what your looking for but hey, you never know who you'll meet on the trail!

    I've met a number of people who really enjoyed the UBI frame classes they took.
