Previous bicycle repair experience is recommended but not required. In short, our bike mechanics are expected to have strong customer service skills, be able to multitask repairs, know the services and events offered by the shop and have the communications skills to teach customers how to repair their own bikes.

Mechanics must be able to work a minimum of 5 hrs/wk; however, hours will flux depending on availability each quarter.

Important Bike Storage Policy Announcement

The ASUW Bike Shop is a valuable resource intended for ALL UW students, staff and faculty. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to use our shop space and services; however, we are not designed to be permanent bike storage. 

With that said, customers will be allotted 10 business days to pick up their serviced bike. From the 11th business day on customers will be charged an additional $4 per day until the bike is picked up from the shop. We do not have the spatial capacity to hold on to customer bikes for extended periods of time. This bike storage fee is necessary to best serve ALL of our customers.

We will begin implementing this policy immediately; we hope you will respect this policy.
