Vintage Cycle Shop in Vancouver seeking Bicycle Mechanic

There is a vintage cycle shop in Vancouver called "Rocket Retro e-cycles" that is looking to hire a bicycle mechanic.

Anyone interested in the job should phone Al Canale at 604-727-6114.

Below is an email from Al Canale:
"We are half way through our build in converting the warehouse. The name is Rocket Retro e-cycles. Our location is 2212 Clark Drive in Vancouver.

While our focus is e-cycles, all the bikes come with fairly standard components when it comes to brakes, wheels, frames and some with standard shimano gearing but with the addition of electric motors, controller, battery and throttles which are all basically plug and play. It would be great to find someone who has e-bike experience but I know this is a combination that is still somewhat of a rarity in the business at this time. I would be prepared to provide further education on the electronics component so if I could find the right mechanic, I would invest in the further education for this area of expertise.

The bikes we will be carrying to give some idea:

and we will also do custom builds in-house with hand-crafted frames

Thanks again,

Al "

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.
