Hi! So, I am interested in learning to build frames, mostly as a hobby, though as a profession would be pretty sweet, because I would love to get paid anything to work with/on bikes. I was wondering about how/where to learn to build frames. There are like 7 or 8 professional framebuilders where I live (portland, or) and I know several of them, and have asked about learning and they were like 'I'd love to, but..."
I can't afford to but a custom bike, so I thought it would be awesome to build my own. Anyone got any tips on where/how to learn/practice?
thanks so much
