    Dear Julie and Bryan,
    I wanted to express my profound thanks for all that I got from my course; yummy food and hospitality, and for the filing more rod and TOO CLOSE. And finally to say how thrilled I am with the frame.
    Kind regards, Charlie.

    Dear Simon, Julie has asked me to send you an email about my experience of staying on site. And so here it is.

    I live in London and decided that I didn’t want to spend my time in a car on the motorway. I also had no particular desire to be driving around the Kent countryside in search of a bed. I’ve spent many nights in Bothies and Youth Hostels, so the offer of a bunk on site was welcome.

    The accommodation is very comfortable in all respects. The beds are absolutely fine, as is the shower and the loo. The ‘living/dining room is also fine. The food is excellent and there was plenty of it.

    Willem and I both had our bikes. Every evening Brian worked out a route that ended up in a pub just a mile or so from ‘home’. The countryside is breathtaking and came as a real surprise. The local ale is delicious and a nice meal out can also be had. My week away was a real treat both in the workshop and in the bunkhouse, and in such beautiful countryside. I was loath to leave, and look forward to returning for my second week.
    I hope that this helps. Kind regards, Charlie Merivale.

    Julie, just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for such a great week I just spent with you. It was way more than I thought it was going to be. Really educationally and hard work in equal measure. I have a new found respect for craftsmen in steel. Pass on my thanks to Bryan Martyn for all their patience and hard work. And thank you for all the delicious cake!
    Best
    Simon

    I have finished the Frame, and just finished building it up now – ready for its first race tomorrow (St Patricks Day)
    I went with a Columbus Minimal fork to save weight (50mm Rake)
    Nice 20mm Veloflex tyres.
    Thanks for all your help – see you after the season for my next one I’ll be coming back for a faster race bike!
    regards,
    Brendan

    Dear Julie and Brian
    I’d just like to thank you all for an excellent 2 weeks. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it which will be useful in my part time job at the bike shop. Hopefully I can get down to do some of your other courses in the not too distant future. Give a big hug to Obie for me.
    Kind regards. Vince
