Mike’s Bikes STL is looking for full-time and part-time skilled bicycle mechanics and sales representatives to join the friendly, professional team at our Central West End location.

Bicycle Technicians

Responsibilities
The Bicycle Technician will do everything from basic repairs like fixing flat tires to adjusting brakes and derailleurs to more complicated repairs and tune-ups. At Mike’s Bikes STL, we work on all kinds of bikes-- from high performance bicycles for racers to commuter bikes-- and the Bicycle Technician will have the opportunity to learn about all kinds of repairs and maintenance.

The Technician will work directly with customers to assess their needs, communicate expectations, and exceed those expectations. The Technician will make every customer-- from the casual rider to the racing enthusiast-- feel valued and welcome in the shop. The Technician will work with the customer to explain necessary versus optional work and to answer questions.
Opportunities for growth

In order to help us deepen our existing relationships with the cycling community and to reach new groups of riders, the Technician will also have the opportunity to develop and lead maintenance clinics, workshops, and community events.

Did not know your store existed - although you ripped off the name of Mike McLaughlin's store of the '80s; had he given permission?
