    your opionion on different classes

    i was going to take the yamaguchi framebuilding class in colorado but i had a guy tell me that he heard that even though yamaguchi builds great bikes he isnt that great of a teacher. i called them and im not sure who i talked to but the people over ther didnt really seem to speak english that well. if im going to be taking a class i want to be able to communicate my ideas to them. the guy i talked to went to ubi and really liked it. hav any of you taken the class and had an opionion? im going to have a workshop and be building lugged frames after the class so its not just going to be a one time thing so i can have a bike. I know how to weld and braze and all the basics. iv taken jewelry classes so i know how to use a jewlers saw and iv done lost wax casting. the reason im taking the class is because i taught myself how to pinstripe and alot of other things and even though if gotten good at them id like a jump start without having to make rookie mistakes and learning from them. thanks im in sandiego and im a younger guy(25) and i heard colorado was a bit boring to hang out in for the two weeks.

    I've never heard a negative comment about UBI. There's also Doug Fattic's class in Mi & Mint's class in Az. May be worth checking out.

    If I had the $ & time, UBI would be my first choice.

    I took a class with Albert Eisentraut many years ago. It was fun. No idea if he's still doing them or not.
