If it were not for such a long commute I'd help. Unless you want to deliver bikes in boxes and pick up assembled bikes later?

I'd like to do it, but business hours+ are impossible. Maybe weekends and nights after Rubithon if you still need help. Was 'pro' wrench (in that I worked in and was paid by shops) back in the day. I dunno if I was any good, but it was fun.

I'd be willing to help after 5:00 or 5:30 on week days and weekends. I'm a Technician at Burt Toyota, and I've tinkered with bikes in my younger days () so I think I can pick it up easily enough. BTW I'm Forrest's older brother.

The problem is, is that I need people with previous bike shop experience. Forrest is taking up the slack otherwise on the more basic stuff. I just don't have the time to train.

Mike, if only I had the time, I could help. Sorry to let you down.

Squishy is a very good wrench though.

I don't want to come across the wrong way, so my apologies to Squishy. Finding a person that I can literally turn loose without instruction is who I am after. Thanks to all.

That guy would be me but I'm too far away and buried with my own work.

But I actually miss working on bikes sometimes.
