Onyerleft, I'll say it again another way. If you enjoy making things and you enjoy bicycling you can make just your own frame in a class. You will get a lot of satisfaction out of it for a long time and you will get positive comments from family, friends and - if you did a good enough job - even strangers. This is the main reason most of my students years ago took my class - to make something that just fit them. They didn't plan on making more. And for many of them it had a pretty big effect. Besides the personal satisfaction they got every time they looked at their own handiwork. they also have a better fitting and riding bike than whatever they had before. There is no reason after class you have to buy tools to make another. I've had students take my class twice so they didn't have to bother getting equipment to make a 2nd frame.
