I was what I wasn’t that I am now


I have been working on my own bicycles since I can remember. I’m not sure how long ago that was but it started in the 70s. I worked on my own bicycles, motorcycles cars trucks etc… but I never called myself a bicycle mechanic.

In 2016 I applied to be a mechanic at the local bicycle shop and I have been a bicycle mechanic since then. I was certified at the United Bicycle Institute after working there.

My point in this post is, I was a bicycle mechanic but didn’t consider myself to be one because I never was paid as one. I was luck enough to find someone to take a chance on me and it has paid off for both of us.
