PBMA is excited to introduce our new Mechanic of the Week, Myron Price, owner of Knoxville Bicycle Company in Tennessee!
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!
Myron has been working professionally as a bicycle mechanic for over 25 years. He began his career in Florida, where he worked first as a line mechanic and then as a service manager. When Myron’s wife accepted a job in eastern Tennessee, the family moved to the Knoxville area, where Myron took up the role of Chief Mechanic at Knoxville Bicycle Company. By 2016, Myron was in a position to take ownership of the company, and he has transitioned seamlessly into his new role.
Myron specializes in mountain bikes and suspension technology, but his shop maintains a high volume of road bike sales and service as well. His friends and customers, who nominated him to be featured this week, describe Myron as “a stickler about details” and “the consummate bicycle mechanic.” They also shared with us that Myron is committed to growing the bicycle mechanics profession and “paying it forward.” To further those goals, Myron was one of the first people to sign up as a full Mechanic Member of the PBMA. We are honored to have his support and proud to feature him today. We hope that Myron will display his new Mechanic of the Week certificate and custom Stu Stuck as proudly as he displays his PBMA membership plaque!
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!
