PBMA is pleased to introduce our newest Mechanic of the Week, John “Maxx” Lewis of Bike Barn in Katy, Texas!
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!
“Maxx” was nominated for this week’s feature by his friends and customers, and the stories they shared showed his dedication to each cyclist’s success relative to his or her individual goals on and off the bike. Whether he is working one-on-one with a triathlete prepare for a major half-Ironman, doing routine tune-ups by the dozens, or helping a nervous parent fit their child with the safest helmet, Maxx always finds time to listen to his customers and goes out of his way to do beyond what has been asked of him.
Maxx has been a mechanic for over 15 years, and by all accounts he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We at PBMA are inspired by his commitment to cycling mechanics as both a profession and a lifestyle, and we are proud to feature him this week.
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!
