framebuilding for beginners
I have been thinking for a while of building a bike from scratch- buying the lugs and tubes and brazing a frame together. Has anyone ever done this? I have never done any welding or brazing (apart from possibly 30 years ago at school-I forget). It would be amazing to see a bike come together and to ride it. It can´t be that hard- has anyone ever done this? or is it just an unattainable dream realizable only by a few elite framebuilders who labour away in the bowels of the earth passing on the dark framebuilding art to select apprentices..Etc (you get the picture)
ideally I would like to build a recumbent- has anyone any experience of this?
