Being a bicycle technician at Republic is great! We like to work with our hands, be presented with a problem, and use deduction and tried and true methods to come up with a tangible result. We know a customer will enjoy riding most when their bike is working beautifully, and when the ideal service isn’t possible, given timing or budget, we pride ourselves in describing the issues clearly. We don’t withhold information or gloss over problems, but instead, use our experience and knowledge to educate, inform and help make a plan for future service. We understand the customer is entrusting us with a big part of their leisure and so we work their bicycles to high standard, as if it were our own, or better. We are good at time management and juggling different tasks of varying priority. We like to be timely, but also be given enough time to do a great job. We work methodically because we will be interrupted and will need to continue from where we left off. We ride bikes and get amped on customers experiencing bikes the way we do!
