United Bicycle Institute Worthwhile?
I have some limited resources for bicycle frame building, a bit of tooling and plenty of access to metal working tools including MIG TIG and OCY/ACET> My question: I wonder if taking a 3000 class UBI has been worthwhile for anyone who has gone there with similar access to their own setups? (Or without any access). I have never made a serious frame, and would like to build a jig and to build several in the future. I'd like to do it well. Toot, toot, but I must say that as a carpenter/sculptor and avid cycle-junkie/mechanic, I generally teach myself how to make things with success, and I imagine there are many who use this forum who are similarly handy. If I can avoid going to school, I will.
If you haven't gone to UBI, any advice for getting into building custom on a small scale? Other class options at a lower cost?
