Frame Building Workshop



Workshop Info

The frame building workshop is a hands-on experience to build your own custom bamboo bicycle frame. We provide the materials and a step by step guidance to design your custom frame geometry and walk you through the different stages of building the frame. Depending on what kind of frame you want, the required time to finish a frame varies between four days to eight days of full time work.


Workshop Fees

The cost of a frame building workshop depends on what type of bike you want to build. Just as a rough guide, a basic frame for a single speed which takes around four days to build will cost 600 Euros (including 19% tax) . An advanced bike such as a touring bicycle with multiple gears and other mechanics can take up to eight days and starts around 1100 Euros (including 19% tax). For an accurate estimation contact us and we will be happy to give you a quote.
