Bamboo Bicycle Workshop
June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020
During this workshop students will build a custom bamboo bicycle frame that they can equip to ride once all the components are built. The frame is built in class. Students will need to complete the wheels, etc. at home. You will learn the basics of frame geometry, frame size, proper placement of bamboo poles on the jig, and techniques for constructing the frame and final finish. The class includes hands-on examples of components needed to complete building the bicycle. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
