    I ride for a shop in Mchenry IL called The Bike Haven. I also work as a TIG welder and metal fabricator. I was just wondering if you guys were open to sharing some frame building lessons. I have my own welder, gas, and basic hand tools. I just want to get a chance to work with someone who’s a little more familiar with frame tooling and jigs. I’m not looking to make money, just wanna build a couple frames at home for fun.
