Other Services

In addition to creating custom bikes under the Kish brand, we offer several related services to those inside and outside of the bicycle industry.

Private Education

Jim Kish has taught hundreds of people the craft of bicycle frame building for over 30 years. He has taught at Duke University, Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, and United Bicycle Institute. If you would like to learn how to build a bike frame, UBI is a fine choice.

If the UBI format or schedule doesn't meet your needs, please contact us to discuss one-on-one instruction. We can find a solution, using our facilities or yours.


Many bicycle manufacturers, both the fledgling and well-established have tapped Kish Fabrication's experience and expertise to help grow and improve their manufacturing or business operations. Especially for those looking to add titanium products to their lineup, a few days of intensive instruction can save years of expensive trial and error. Past clients include bicycle, wheelchair, and recumbent manufacturers needing help with welding technique, machining, or design.
