Hey. Yeah, kid, you. See anyone else on this lonely streetcorner? Don’t worry, I’m not gonna try to sell you anything. How’d you like to be a BIKE MECHANIC?
LEGIT, the wesleyan bike co-op/greasemonkey corner, wants YOU. Don’t know a freewheel from a hex wrench? No frickin problem. No experience required. (but hey, if you have some, what are you waiting for?) Apparently I am supposed to say something about the cool kids, but the cool kids sound intimidating, (which bikes ARE NOT OR SHOULD NOT BE)… How does “the winning team” sound? You could be on it.
Accruing oodles of favors and good karma for making other peoples lives easier, less annoyingly filled with creaky chain noises, and generally faster, getting super familiar with words like CRANKSET and THREADED HEADSET and SPOKE NIPPLE….
if this sounds like you, email contacts are amccullough, rphukan and jrovinelli @ wes. (I’d email all three.)
