I just went ahead and did it having watched the Paterek DVD's once... I am a design engineer and I was a welder for a while so probably in a better position than most to start out though. I live in New Zealand where there are no framebuilding classes whatsoever, but i know a chap who has built a few frames and talked to him a couple of times. I considered this more than enough to crack straight into it. There is more than enough resource out there to get a pretty good idea of what is going on.

As a result I have now built two great frames, a lugged commuter and a fillet brazed fatbike, both of which are a joy to ride. I have just ordered the parts for the third frame...
