Duration and Format
We teach this course either 1:1 or 2:1, full time in 10 days over 2 consecutive weeks Monday – Friday, then Monday - Friday.
This is the most comprehensive course offered at The Bicycle Academy, with the first 4 days comprised of a series of skills masterclasses followed by 6 days spent building your very own frame and forks. You’ll learn every step of the way, actually build a bike for yourself and crucially; you’ll come away with the skills to make more. We won’t skim over details, or do things for you, we’ll teach you properly so that you do a great job to be proud of.

One of the many benefits of taking a course with us is that once you have graduated you can hire the use of one of our frame-building benches to work on your own frame building projects. We keep costs down and only charge for the time you spend in the workshop and any materials you use.
£2400 + materials for the frame set (these range from £180-£400)
