Bruce Goett's insight:

You definitely see a lot more middle age and older people out on bikes these days. You can buy a pretty decent bike for the money you'll spend on 15 rounds of golf and drinks and food afterward. Plus, riding is a lot less frustrating than golfing.

Lexington Herald Leader
He makes about six bicycle frames a year in the shop behind his Ashland Park home. He also makes frame-building tools for other bike-makers around the world.
Bruce Goett's insight:

The difficult part is probably making a living at if you're a small builder. If you take 40 hours to build a frame that you can sell for $1000, your hourly rate isn't that high especially when you factor in the price of the tubing.
