University of Iowa Hand Built Bicycle Program

I just ran across this very recently, so I thought I'd share it. The campus in Iowa City appears to offer two classes: "Fabrication and Design: Hand Built Bicycle" and "Hand Built Bicycle II". Here's the Facebook page for more: https://www.facebook.com/IowaDBR?_fb_noscript=1.

If nothing else it expands the awareness a bit.

More that likely it is alternative for their scholarship athletes who feel uncomfortable in yet another 400 level basket weaving course to keep their GPA up to 3.0 [
