Not me, but I am thinking real hard about that frame building course.

Was the maintenance course around $1000-$1500? I can't remember exactly, but I do remember thinking it was pricey for learning maintenance.

I am looking at spending some time in sunny Oregon to take the frame building courses they offer... it's a pretty long commute but figure it will be worth it.

When I consider the cost of a custom frame and then add on to that the knowledge of how to do it myself, the course seems completely worthwhile.

I plan to build a lot of frames so figure the stuff I will learn will be more than worthwhile.

And I was kidding about the commute... I'm 1000 miles away.
