Mr DIY, your instructions have arrived.
Twisted Spoke ran across this story about cheap almost jigless bicycle frame building.
Now, we actually a few lessons in welding bike tubes many years ago but have no desire to build a frame. Just too damn much work.
As far as we’re concerned, the instructions may just as well say “build a nuclear reactor for under $100” or “assemble your own fighter jet in 4 weeks.” Impossible given our puny skill-set.
But you, handyman extraordinaire, closet welder, garage tinkerer, smart fella with too much time on your hands, well, get going.
These instructions appear to be well-written and if you’ve got the know-how, then full speed ahead. We on the other hand will just try to hustle up more advertising jobs so we can pay someone else to build it.
