My LBS mechanic has just left. Not sure if looking for a replacement. Could ask for you if you want?

But North London in a Sh*t. The rents are F**king :shock:

There's a national shortage of shop mechanics in Denmark....

But that's not much help is it?

Whose wife did you shag that makes it necessary to skip town?

we needed another mechanic in the shop i work in but after so many people comming in who was basically useless we gave up, you wouldnt belive how many people say they can do cycle mechanics and the knowlage stops at a puncture. i can count the good mechanics in this town on 1 hand.

I worked at Wheelbase in Cumbria in 1995 for £120 take home, 5 day week but worked weekends.

Sorry Cannondale King, doesn't help you does it... good luck with your hunt. Try ringing around - that's how I got my job at Wheelbase. Advertising jobs is expensive for buinesses so if somebody lands on their doorstep they may jump at the chance to take you on.

We need one for over half a year now, but it's in Holland...... Same problem, loads of people who say they can but no one can .....

Good luck finding the right one. I can tell you, woking full time in a bikeshop can be fun ... :D
