PBMA is pleased to introduce our newest Mechanic of the Week, David Wogen, of River Rider Cycles in Wabasha, MN!
For those of you just tuning into #mechanicmonday, this is where we feature one mechanic each week, chosen at random from nominations submitted the week before. It’s all about mechanics supporting fellow mechanics – even behind the scenes, where we are proud to say that our Mechanic of the Week is presented by none other than Abbey Bike Tools and the Friar himself!
David Wogen has been a professional mechanic for nearly 20 years. He opened his one-man shop, River Rider Cycles, in 2002. David specializes in “very creative thinking for rare bike problems.” Not only is David friendly, funny, and “awesome (!!)” but he is also uniquely inventive. David has the full use of only one arm, and rather than ask for help in his shop, he has invented tools to assist him in his day-to-day work.
David was nominated by his family, who are so proud of his accomplishments. We at PBMA are impressed and humbled by his resourcefulness, talent, and motivation to excel. Congratulations, David, and thank you for being an inspiration to us all!
For everyone reading this at home, we encourage you to join the #MOTW conversation: Post a picture of YOUR favorite mechanic and tag us @probicyclemech, #probma, or #mechanicmonday, or nominate him or her to be featured in next week’s post!
