The Bicycle Academy and Prestige Cycles to demonstrate frame building techniques at the 2014 Cycles Show

For the first time, visitors to the annual Cycle Show, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, will be able to watch at close hand the kind of work that goes into building high quality bike frames from scratch.

The Bicycle Academy, a frame building school based in Somerset, will be alongside custom bike fitters Prestige over the three days of the show, taking audience members from the early measuring and fitting stage to the building and welding of the frames.

They aim to make the frames in the three days of the show that would normally take the builders between 6 and 12 weeks to create

Custom bikes have seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years and this exhibition aims to demonstrate the inner workings of how both the Bicycle Academy and Prestige produce their bikes.

The frame building demonstration will take place at the Cycle Show between September 26 and 28. You can find out more information about the exhibition and the Cycle Show in general by visiting the official website.
