We’re really lucky, we to get to teach lots of different people here at The Bicycle Academy; from first timers to part time frame builders and also working pro’s. This week we taught Adrian from Swarf Cycles, a one man bike brand that Adrian runs from his workshop at home in Dorset.
Adrian’s a design engineer working in the Aerospace industry so it’s safe to say that he’s got more than enough engineering knowledge to do the job, but as is often the case he wanted to really get to grips with fillet brazing so came to us for a Fillet Brazing Masterclass.
Adrian’s got some great designs including this 6″ FS prototype complete with a beautiful home made custom carbon swingarm. Having ridden it I can honestly say that I really want one, I think it’s the perfect UK DH bike and it pedals well too!
It’s really exciting to be a small part of projects like this, we’ll be following his progress and keep you posted with how the bikes take shape.
To stay in the loop have a look at the Swarf Cycles Facebook page and give them a ‘like’.
