    From the UBI website Framebuilding FAQ:

    4. What kind of tubing will I use to build my frame?

    In our steel frame building classes, we use high quality, butted, chromoly tubing. The brands we most often use are Columbus, Tange and True Temper. In the titanium frame building class, we use certified 3/2.5 titanium tubing from Ancotech.


    and

    10. In the brazing class, what type of lugs are used?

    We use the highest quality, investment cast, chromoly lugs. The brands we use the most are Henry James, Pacenti, Richard Sachs and Everest.

    Mebbe UBI should look into expanding its school in to the San Jose area...
