“I am from the fall 2003 TIG class (Kish inst.). Here is my Columbus/True-Temper Twenty-Niner. I think I was the first UBI student to attempt one. It was a success for the most part. The geometry of the bike was hard to pull off, because I did not like the production 29ers out there; so I had Kish help me a lot on what would be the “happy medium” for this particular bike. I had a great time making it and would love to take the Ti class in the future. Thanks again for the great program and thanks to Jim Kish for all of his time spent with me. He has the patience of Jesus…Or at least I need to buy him a drink(s).”

“This is the frame that i built while at UBI. I took the steel TIG course in the summer of ’05, brought it home to NY, painted/airbrushed it myself, and finally completed the build early this summer. Built from the start as an aggressive XC bike, it rides just how it sounds… beefy enough for east coast descents, but light enough to compete. Check out the Surly dropouts! (sweet).”
