It’s official, the Framebuilders’ Collective is proud to announce a partnership with the UCI that will aid any custom builders with the UCI homologation program. This program is open to all small custom builders that choose to take advantage of it. The program offers the small builder a discount on the fee and will simplify and streamline the process. The Framebuilders’ Collective will be available to provide assistance when needed. We have also added an area to our forum for questions and discussion related to the program. The program details can be seen here:
