Sean or ‘Burnsey’ as he is sometimes called recently completed a single speed 29″+ fat bike frame while studying at Metal Guru. Sean chooses to ride exclusively on single speed bikes. He has been dubbed the ‘single speed pirate‘, a name that arose and then stuck from the wild and unsanctioned races that he promotes. Details of his Pirate Cross Country Series events can be found here.
Sean has ambitions to become a professional bicycle frame builder. His course quickly became more than just about creating one great frame, but how to acquire the skills and tools necessary to make his desires develop into a profession. Fortunately his ambition is matched by a keen attention to detail and good manual dexterity.
The following gallery details his progression through the class from initial design to tube preparation for welding. The conclusion of his class will be detailed in an upcoming post.
Great work Sean!!
