During each frame building course, the instructor will also build a frame along with the student’s frames to serve as a demonstration piece for each phase of the frame building process. Sometimes we have demands from other industry partners, most recently Park Tool to display their new T47 thread chasing taps and Shimano to display their new technologies in their booths. Sometimes we build frames for fellow instructors (perks!), or sometimes for our own displays. If UBI or any of our industry partners have no frame needs, the instructor gets to decide what to build. We thought it would be a neat little project to speak to what goes in to deciding what to build, when you have the whole world to choose from. A steel dirt jumper!
