Some of you may be wondering: “What’s up with Mechanic Monday?”
So far this year, the PBMA has featured sixteen outstanding mechanics as part of our Mechanic Monday series, p/b Abbey Bike Tools and supported by Cycling Industry News and People for Bikes. But we need more nominations to keep up the one-a-week pace!
Professional bicycle mechanics are understandably very busy people. Without a doubt, their ability to multi-task and their attention to detail are parts of what make them so awesome. But those same traits also make them incredibly difficult to interview! This year, we’ve made a commitment to interview each mechanic nominated for Mechanic Monday, but in many cases, it takes those mechanics weeks to have time for our questions. So the “TL;DR” of it all is what you have seen (or, more accurately, not seen) these past two weeks: We need a lot of nominations to produce just one feature.
That’s where you come in. You don’t need to be a PBMA Member to nominate or be featured for Mechanic Monday! (All that we ask is for no self-nominations, please.) So, nominate your favorite mechanic today! He or she, and the PBMA, will appreciate it!
