McGuire developed the classes, Fabrication and Design: Hand Built Bicycle I and II, which have run since 2010.

Steve McGuire, a professor and avid cyclist at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, merged his passions for art and cycling into a unique class that teaches students not only to work with their hands, but to create something they can use every day for the rest of their lives.
