Custom frame building workshop

Zurich frame builders give an insight into the magic of frame building, discuss facts and myths and show how the process from customer contact to the ready-to-ride custom-made bike works.
Custom frame building

There are myths surrounding the works of art created by custom frame builders: but what added value does the custom frame, or rather custom bike building, offer compared to the mass market? And, are there limits and boundaries? 

Zurich has a lively frame building scene (yes, masculine, as far as we know there are no women in the business here yet). The workshop offers you the unique opportunity to gain an insight into the topic from a handful of these local experts.

In addition to myths and opinions, it's also about practical matters: how does the process of building a frame work? What is the process like, from the first customer contact to the build to the test ride? Insights are provided, access to the secrets is granted and aspects such as ergonomics, geometry and materials are explained and discussed.

The frame builders and workshop leaders:
Wim Kolb 
Donat More 
Röbi Stolz 
and other frame builders from the Bike Lovers Contest
