PBMA is pleased to introduce our newest Mechanic of the Week, Michael Dolan, of Sun & Ski Sports in Austin, 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!
Mike has been working as a professional mechanic for 10 years, and during that time, he has amassed quite a following! Mike’s co-workers and customers are so loyal to him that he received no fewer than 15 nominations to be featured by PBMA. We were so impressed by the sheer volume of nominations that we reached out to Mike to ask him whether he knew about these nominations or if they were a complete surprise. It turns out that Mike posted a sign in his shop’s service center with information about PBMA, so that anyone who visited him (and trust us, he’s quite popular!) would be able to learn more about the organization.
We at PBMA are humbled by Mike’s loyalty to our mission, and we are so grateful for his support. But more than anything, we are both impressed and inspired by the comments that Mike’s customers and co-workers sent with his nominations. It’s impossible to list all of his accolades here, but overwhelmingly, people in the Austin area agree that Mike is one of the most practical and patient mechanics they have ever worked with. As one of his co-workers said, “He is a great guy and a true master in the shop.” Mike’s customers emphasized his dedication to customer service and his willingness to explain “anything and everything” about their bikes.
Mechanics like Mike Dolan are the motivation for everything that PBMA set out to do within the cycling industry, and we are proud to feature him today. 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!
