Default Calling Out Any Bike Techs

I am in dire need of some experienced help as one of my experienced seasonal guys up and quit with one week notice and another has a 3 week school commitment with School of Mines. I am basically $%@#'d right now.

I need guys that can build bikes and do repairs. I have a Craig's List Ad going, but it seems like everyone needs experienced help.

Not that I'm complaining, but the gas crunch has us lazy Americans wanting to ride, and May and June are our two busiest months, and we are doing near record business. Feast or famine, go figure. I will be working 7 days a week for awhile, glad I got up to Slaughterhouse last Sunday!

Anyway, if anyone knows guys in or formerly in the bike business and need some temporary work, let me know. The shop phone # is 303-797-1858. There are 3 of us full time and one eager kido named Forrest, and it's all we can handle with 20 bikes that need built and about 50 tunes next week!

Mike

No, anytime during business hours or by special arrangement. I am not picky at all.

Call up Terry Holben, I bet he would enjoy wrenching on bikes.

That'd be a heck of a commute.

That would be a bit of a drive. Anyway, Im a collector, not a mechanic. I am going to start riding to Boulder for work. 28 miles one way, and 4000' down hill.

Mike, all I would need is the time to do it! Ain't got no. I'll still think on it.
Forrest might not want Dad around though...
