For over thirty years, more bicycle professionals and enthusiasts have chosen United Bicycle Institute over any other mechanics and frame building school. That’s because UBI’s knowledgeable, friendly and dedicated faculty and its state-of-the-art facilities ensure an unsurpassed educational experience for every student. We offer our curriculum at two different campuses: our headquarters in Ashland, Oregon and our classroom facility in Portland, Oregon. United Bicycle Institute is the industry’s leading technical school offering courses in repair, frame building, and mechanic certification for beginner to advanced technicians. UBI’s frame building curriculum has been fashioned for over two decades by some of the legends of frame building. Under the direction of UBI President Ron Sutphin, the program started with classes from Albert Eisentraut and, later, was a crucible for the resurgence of titanium frame building, led by Gary Helfrich. More recently, Mike DeSalvo, Jim Kish, Paul Sadoff, Tony Pereira and Joseph Ahearne have all been regular instructors in UBI’s program. There are many opportunities to learn frame building from an individual builder. But there’s only one frame building school with a curriculum fashioned by the best in the business: UBI.
