PBMA is pleased to introduce our newest Mechanic of the Week p/b Abbey Bike Tools, Neil Cernitz, of Portland, Oregon!
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!
Neil is a retired aircraft mechanic, who has been working in the bike industry in some capacity for well over twenty years. He was nominated by his colleagues at Western Bikeworks, all of whom say that Neil is the epitome of a “tireless, detail-oriented, and intelligent mechanic, adept at solving problems quickly and effectively.” Not only does Neil turn wrenches for Western Bikeworks, but he is also an accomplished frame builder. He specializes in functional, efficient, and aesthetically-pleasing steel designs, each of which is a labor of love that Neil produces under his very own Cernitz Cycles label.
PBMA and Abbey Bike Tools are proud to feature Neil this week, and we are – as always – in awe of the immeasurable talents of our fellow mechanics!
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!
