Lex to Build her Own Bicycle in 2021
Have you ever wondered exactly where a bicycle comes from? I'm going to know exactly where one of the bikes in my fleet was created:
Knowing basic bike mechanics was the perfect way to gain the skills I needed to maintain, adjust and do small repairs on my own bike. That was pretty handy for a frugal kid on a student budget, and one who likes to go on adventures where help isn't always close to hand.
I'm pretty excited to kick off my off-season, graduating to the next level of bikes and tools. When I enrolled at Bohemian Framebuilding School, I got to choose between buidling a steel bike, or learning how to build a carbon fibre bike. I chose to make a steel bicycle, partly because I really want to know how to weld.
