Hi! We're the Bike Builders of Berkeley, a small student-run organization at the University of California, Berkeley. We do precisely what our name says: build bikes. Though the 2021 academic year was our very first year as a club, we worked tirelessly to manufacture our club's first bike, a steel gravel bike. It took almost a full year of meetings, CAD, research, and eventually manufacturing. We're not satisfied with what we've got, though. With your generous donation, we'll be able to continue our research into more advanced materials (read: carbon fiber!!), spec out better components, and build many more bikes. We're so excited to share the results of our hard work and are so glad you're coming on this wild ride with us!
