PBMA is pleased to introduce this week’s Mechanic of the Week and our new record-holder for most nominations, Julian DaSilva of The Racer’s Edge (@TheRacersEdgeShop) in Boca Raton, Florida!
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!
Julian has made his career as a mechanic by “pushing the envelope” of what is possible in and on a bicycle. He has been turning wrenches for over a decade, and in that time has been featured in Mountain Bike Action, Dirt Rag, and Bike Rumor publications. His most loyal customers say that he has both “an undying love for cycling” and “an eye towards innovation.” Everyone who nominated Julian – and he received nearly 50 nominations! – agreed that he is destined for a long and noteworthy career in the cycling industry.
We are proud that Julian’s hard work and dedication to cycling mechanics has had such an impact on his community that so many people came forward to nominate him. Congratulations, Julian, and we look forward to watching your programs grow!
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!
