- Bike Checks
Here's an interesting presentation from Donny Perry, the SBCU Global Development Manager at Specialized Bicycles. In it he discusses how much a bike mechanic earns on average in the United States, how their salary compares to other careers, and ends with the question "How can bike work be valued for more?"
It's a good discussion topic. We definitely appreciate all the hard work mechanics have put in wrenching on our rides over the years. What are your thoughts? Regardless, consider brightening your mechanic's day with a tip next time he does his magic. While they likely love what they do, they have to make a living too.
