Introduction to the craft of frame maker

” Build my own framework “, a wish that was regularly expressed to me, and which prompted me to set up these training courses accessible to all. ONLY IN FRANCE

Support you in the creation of your custom-made bicycle frame

The idea is that I accompany you and help you in the various stages of the manufacture of a steel frame (Columbus or Reynolds tubes), and this, over a period of five days. For a tailor-made frame of course!

We will discuss brazing and soldering for the manufacture of the frame (unless specifically requested). It is possible to build a steel fork (1 day more) or that I make it with you during your internship. Or, to order a Columbus carbon fork, for Gravel type projects for example.

The training takes place in my workshop in Jujurieux in Ain (01640), a region where life is good! On request, the training can take place at the Cycle Victor store in Levallois Perret.

Once the project has been validated, I design the geometry of the frame according to your measurements and wishes. It is also at this time that I order the equipment necessary for the manufacture of the frame, so it takes about 3 months between the validation of the training and its start.
