Designing and building bicycle frames has been part of Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing tradition for many years. In fact, many significant bicycle companies have been started by Cal Poly alums. Students, senior Frame Builder members, and industry professionals meet to discuss frame designing processes ranging from deciding the type of frame and fabrication process to modeling the frame using different software applications. Students will have shop time where, with senior members, they will learn and practice different fabrication techniques and ultimately build a functioning bicycle frame. Every member of the club possesses a varying skill-set when it comes to design and fabrication, which encourages teamwork to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to create their very own bicycle frame. Our ultimate goal is to create unique, high quality bicycle frames that will be displayed at the North American Hand Made Bicycle Show or similar events throughout California and the nation.
