Bicycles from Scratch
Build Your Own Custom Bicycle from Just an Idea!

Build your dream machine with a trained professional bicycle mechanic by your side teaching, instructing, guiding & helping you through the entire process from an idea to a finished bike

The 1226 Build Your Own Custom Bicycle Course is run 1 on 1 or in small groups over 4 sessions to take you through all the steps in building your bike:
The plan & sourcing
Finish off

You’ll be instructed, helped & cheered on by Steve & Ben in our workshop environment.  You get to build your own custom dream machine & have the foundation knowledge to build your next custom dream machine

The 1226 BIKES Build Your Own Custom Bicycle Course is a bespoke experience tailored around individual participants & their bikes allowing any skill level & any bicycle type.  We guide when you’re a little unsure.  We instruct when you don’t know.  We lay hands on tools when you get stuck.   We’re there ramping up & ramping down support.  It’s a structured but flowing experience that teaches you & pushes your abillities while keeping it fun

Session 1: The plan
Brainstorming’s fun together!  With you leading the way we’ll develop a strategy to get you to your dream machine. It’s all about the ride you want to create

We plan the build from the frame up using whatever compatible components you already have (if any)
3 options:
Supply anything or everything needed (including period correct) before session 2
Help you source what’s needed before sesson 2
Work out what’s needed & you can source it yourself before session 2

Session 1 is big and exciting!  But after the excitement settles there’s a lot to do before session 2.  If you’re sourcing the parts yourself or with our help you’ll be able to work at your own pace booking the next available Tuesday for your session 2 once you have everything needed

Session 2: Assembling
Session 2’s all about the foundations.  You’ll install the bottom  bracket, crank, headset, fork, wheels, stem & bars

Session 3: Get ready to roll

Time to complete the build.  You’ll put on the groupset, cassette, saddle & chain

Session 4:  Release the Kraken

Time to get your baby rolling!  You’ll cable, wrap & tune the bike & set up brakes

Bike Training 1226 Way

The 1226 bicycle workshops & bicycle courses are bespoke to you & your bike.  We work through the general principles & details of each step with the group as a whole before everyone works on their own bikes

With Ben & Steve stepping in & out, you work on your bike.  You’ll be instructed, with us problem solving with you & fixing if needed, stepping in & out of the process as required

Whether you’re a competent home mechanic, or you don’t know how to take a wheel off you’ll work at your own pace

It’s a fun, easy going & safe environment with skilled professionals.  It’s hands-on, it’s sometimes challenging…  But always great fun!

See you at the next course
