BFOC to offer Bicycle Frame Building Classes in 2010

(photo from i,etc.’s photostream)

If you’re a fan of hands on construction, BFOC and the Oak Cliff Bicycle Company are looking to start a bicycle frame building class in January, where we’ll bring in area bike frame builders and have them walk you through the basics of putting together your own bicycle from scratch. We’re planning on partnering with Adamson High School’s auto-shop class, which has everything from welding and machining tools, to a full paint shop, and rolling out a series of weekend classes. For now, seating will be limited, and we’re going to try and keep these priced at $35 per person, to allow for as many people interested in creating their own custom ride take part. Email us at if you’d like to be first on the list to sign up. We’ll provide more details in the coming weeks on teachers/builders and times.
