Bike Builders at UCI

Re-founded in 2022 by Blaise Baker,  Jena Mast, and myself.

The purpose of the club is to provide students the opportunity to learn and practice various manufacturing techniques through the creation of unique and functional bicycles.

With the help of the UCI Machine Shop, we taught ourselves to fabricate bicycles by learning to Oxy-Acetylene braze, TIG weld, and use manual machining equipment.

With some foundational skills and knowledge, we moved into learning CAM and CNC mill operation to develop more complex components. We also have plans to 3d print frame components.

Below are some of the projects I am working on:
