Does anyone have any resources for learning to build a geared and fixed gear bike? Trying to find something to do while work is shit!
Good idea, i might do the same with some simple electronics.
There's endless resources online, i'd start with Sheldon Brown to understand some of the basics (or to see just how complicated it can get) then search videos specific to what your trying to build/fix.
Not really clear what you mean by learning to build a bike? Most people start by fixing their own bikes to learn the basics then tackle full builds once they have a better understanding of what they're doing. That was my route anyway, there's many more experienced people on here that can advise.
IME work space and tools will be key to how much you get out of this!
Basically I have a load of accumulated parts to build a geared bike and a fixed gear bike (frames, forks, headsets, wheels, group sets etc) and tools but 0 Know-How (I could potentially build most of a fixed gear bike). Thank you for your help, sorry I wasn’t clear!

I've found RJtheBikeGuy to be a great resource too:
that guy is an absolute legend of youtube
