The Workshop

A cross between a a primary school, library, gallery, cafe, and a workshop. Like all good classrooms it’s a place to learn and a place to inspire.

It’s got everything you need to build a frame from scratch: brazing stations, a lathe, a pillar drill and a kettle for much-needed cups of tea, of course. As well as a library with every frame building book you can think of and we sell a few materials too (like different steel tubes, brazing goggles and gloves).

Our workshop is in our hometown, Frome in Somerset. The workshop is only 200 yards away from a brand new pump track that’s being built in a local park and is on the Sustrans cycle network’s route 24. Frome, the home of the Cobble Wobble (organised by Andrew each year), is cycle friendly with plenty of mountain biking and great road routes around and about. It’s also a great place to stay. There are independent shops, restaurants, pubs, cafés, B&Bs and hotels (some with bike storage) aplenty.
