Bike Mechanic Needed! Get Paid To Build Bikes

Written by Boston Biker on May 13

Know your way around a bike, have some past mechanical experience? Then check this out.

Mechanic needed to work 25- 30 hours a week, some weeks more, and some weeks less. As the mechanic is not dealing with customers flex time is not a problem as long as the work gets done in a timely manner. Pay starts at $10 an hour, after a moth it goes up to $12. If this individual works out, they can expect a trip to the Netherlands and Denmark to get trained at the various factories. A pretty nice perk as they will be staying in Copenhagen, Dieren and Amsterdam!

The person needs to be mature, creative, able to work outside the box and with others. He/she also must either be in college or have a college degree.

Bike Move!

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 21

Myself and some friends did a bike move this weekend. Worked like a charm. Moved all the stuff, even the big stuff, didn’t use a single drop of gas. Had a great great time too. Special thanks to Metro Pedal Power for helping with the cargo trike, and the Dutch Bicycle Company for letting us borrow two big cargo bikes! You guys rocked!

Lots and lots of pictures below.
