The 11-day workshop starts on a Monday and ends on a Friday of the following week. Sunday is an off day when you can rest, ride, or explore Tucson.  The workshop starts promptly at 8 am each morning and ends around 5:30 pm. There is a 1-hour lunch break each day.

Unlike some teaching options I offer students, within reason the ability  to tackle more advanced building.  Disc brakes, through axles, T47, sliding dropouts, rocker dropouts, stainless steel dropouts, 44mm headtubes, yokes, etc. 

*  To take advantage of the complimentary powder coat you have to stay an additional 1/2 day (at no charge) in order to complete the work.
