Long time no post but have a great idea....
I have an interesting idea for a business plan, but if this topic is off limits I apologize. I am not advertising anything..
Here it goes: This year will be my first year hunting. I'll be on public land where there is no ATV and dirtbikes allowed but bicycles are allowed. I'm wondering if I could learn how to build, and then build a custom bike specifically for hunting and fishing crowd, how do you think that'd work? in my experience alot of them are financially frugal, just as apt to get a next bike and clamp some pvc on it for rod holders than to have much more money tied up so I think its a tough market. I am thinking about signing up for frame building classes and learning how to build one, and then just going from there and building my own within a couple years and just building to order until i work my way to a full time gig with it.
Any ideas on this as I've seen some custom frame builders charge up to $5k for their regular frames so I just don't know if the market allows such a high end price point, especially with the current econonmy.
