Ok, I've been eyeing UBI for a while, and now that I have a friend living out in Portland, I think now's the time to pull the trigger. My question to all of you "How to build more frames after the first to pay off gear, start making money etc?". This question is different than all the rest I've seen because I'm specifically wondering how to get up to the initial 20-50 frames before I try to "go pro" or at least to pay off equipment. So I'm saying I don't have 20 friends who would buy costom frames from me, I would like to sell frame number 4 or 5 but I don't want to do it in an unethical way. Is there some way I could sell frames, maybe just at cost of materials, with some sort of waiver? Like I'll give a best effort to help fix any problem, but I'm not a professional, I'm just a guy?
Does that make sense? Do most of you just give away free frames or have 20 sitting in the basement someplace? I'm not trying to go full time ever, I just want to make nice bikes for people on occasion and have a physical hobby, as I work for myself in front of a computer all day.
Does that make sense?
