In this studio students explore the design of the bicycle and use oxy-acetylene brazing techniques to create bicycle frames of their own design. Traditional frame geometry is explained, and participants create their own personalized designs.

Students learn brass fillet and silver brazing -- traditional methods of bicycle frame construction -- as well as hand tool and machine tool techniques to cut and prepare the bicycle frame tubes for joining.

Frame-building tools and techniques such as jigs, fixtures, measurement, alignment, and finishing are also covered. Dedicated students have the opportunity to construct a complete bicycle frame, without a fork, within the time frame of the class.

Students will need to purchase their own frame building materials, approximately $150.

This course satisfies an Industrial Design Investigative studio or studio elective.
