PBMA is excited to introduce #mechanicmonday, where we will feature one mechanic each week, chosen at random from nominations submitted the week before.
This week, we would like to introduce you to Kevin Toomey of Bike World Mid-South Multisport in Collierville, Tennessee. Kevin is a veteran mechanic and was nominated by his supervisor, Bryan Pacey. Bryan writes: “[Kevin] has worked for our shop as head mechanic since he was 15 years old. Now 27, he teaches me new things all the time about the profession and I've been a professional mechanic for over 12 years. His constant need to educate himself in everything bicycle amazes me. From YouTube videos and GCN to technical manuals and websites plus annual trips to Specialized for advanced techniques have proven his dedication to the profession. Never afraid to tackle new technology or refurbishing that ancient bike that comes in from time to time he is the picture of a true bicycle connoisseur. For my shop he is invaluable to the success of our business and we are very thankful to have him as one of our own.”
Mechanics supporting mechanics – that’s what the PBMA is all about!! We encourage you to join the 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!
