I’ve recently been working at Wright Bros bike shop in Fremont and have been learning a lot about working on bikes. Maybe one day I’ll be a master mechanic myself! But I’ve been asked to post an opportunity for those that have experience as a bike mechanic here on the Cranked blog. Check it out:
* Bike Works has a current opening for TWO Bike Shop Mechanics. One of our mechanics has decided to go back to school, so we’re searching for great mechanics to work full time or part time this summer, and possibly part time in the off-peak season (usually October – April).
* Bike Works is a not-for-profit community bicycle shop, and offers a rich, dynamic, and rewarding job opportunity. While the technical aspects of the job require top-notch mechanical ability, working in our bike shop also requires a commitment to youth, community development, and sustainable transportation.
To find out more about the opportunity, check out the position opening.
This is one of the cool things I’ve learned about bike shops, everyday people come into Wright Bros asking about buying a cheap used bike, or where to get used parts, and invariably—because we’re only a repair shop for the most part—we tell them to check out Bike Works among other shops like Recycled Cycles or Second Ascent. All great shops.
