 Judging by the peak on their current helmets, Dainese could benefit from an engineer with experience in product design. The safest helmet is the one that gets worn, that thing looks embarrassing.

 how do i apply for the technical communicator job at SRAM it could use a intelligent good writer (and rider!) like me, and because they and me have a common interest of bikes. i also have references if your looking for people who can recommend me because we worked together before and they are also in the bike industry to and I did a technical internship but they didn’t hire me after it was over.

 Dear young professional bicycle mechanics: If you leave the bike industry and enter the trades (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, welding, masonry, etc... You will make more money and be appreciated more if you show up and work hard.

The work is harder, dirtier, more dangerous, and more uncomfortable, but the pay is SO much better, and you won't have to deal with E-bikes, HR Karen, delusional customers.

You will be able to afford a new bicycle (and a eventually a new car) but you will also probably have less free time to ride Frown
  • 47 3
 Delusional customers are everywhere mate. And, if your trades job is dangerous, you're not doing it right.
  • 7 0
 @mi-bike: he did say more dangerous. If you’re hurting yourself with paper clips more often than tradesmen hurt themselves with power tools you’re definitely doing it wrong
  • 8 0
 @mi-bike: uh, well, using a table saw is more dangerous than anything you do in a bike shop, so not necessarily.

@axleworthington pretty sure I know which bike shop you worked at, and they don't have HR and pay well for the industry, not that they don't have other problems. also, as someone that worked in trades for a long time, there are definitely HR Karens and delusional customers. and a lot of angry alcoholics.

bike industry pay as a whole is terrible, though, I'll give you that.
  • 17 0
 Long time bike industry mechanic here. You’re right. The pro deals (that you can hardly even get anymore) are NOT worth the garbage pay. None of us were in the industry to make great money, but eventually there comes a point where you can barely afford life living on that kind of salary. Even as a highly trained mech with multiple master tech certs from various brands and many years of experience. This is exactly why I moved to aviation. Way more time off, WAY better pay, and way better benefits (some of the best in the country). There are a hell of a lot more rules and regulations if you don’t want to go to jail, but absolutely worth it. The bike industry will continue to lose high quality mechanics because there’s literally no point in furthering your education and expertise anymore. MAYBE if you’re a traveling factory race mechanic but that’s literally it.
  • 18 1
 If working on E-bikes is an insurmountable obstacle for you then you won’t make it in plumbing, electrical, HVAC, welding, masonry, etc.
  • 1 0
 @PHX77: funny thing is that if it's who I think it is, they went into electrical.

 @mi-bike: accidents can happen even when you’re highly skilled and paying close attention. I would agree that many (not all) trades jobs do carry higher consequences than anything in a bike shop IF you do mess up.
  • 6 1
 @mick06: Nobody needs to get hurt doing their job, including tradies using power tools. The greater the inherent risk of a particular activity, the more important it is that you have the right training, procedures, and equipment to prevent incidents. If you're doing it right, a potentially dangerous job has become a low-risk one.
  • 7 3
 @mi-bike: nah. I worked in woodworking for like 15 years. even the most trained, most skilled people with the best safety equipment get hurt. I know several lifetime, highly skilled woodworkers that have lost fingers after 20 years in the industry, etc. It's just a fact of working in trades. I was a best of the best woodworker and made furniture for the richest of the rich, have pieces in the white house (pre-trump), etc. I lost count of how many times I got cut, burnt, nails or staples though my fingers, etc. Nearly lost my whole arm in a joiner once, pure luck on that one.

almost all of the top 25 most dangerous jobs are trades jobs, and not for no reason.
  • 5 2
 @mi-bike: risk (probability) and consequence (magnitude) are two different things. I work on jet engines now. Because of my skill and amount of training and education, it’s low risk and relatively safe. BUT for many of the tasks involved in working on propellers and turbines, and crawling around on wings/fuselages etc the consequence can be extremely high despite being low risk. I don’t need to be mansplained to about how proper training is required for more dangerous jobs lol. I’m well aware. My literal only point was that it’s pretty hard to severely injure yourself in a bike shop. I’ve cut a couple fingers open, and some other minor injuries here and there. But there are trades jobs out there that do carry higher consequence IF you do mess up. The potential for human error is unavoidable in every industry.
  • 4 3
 @swillett116: Didn't want to 'splain anything. I work in a dangerous job with moderate risk and high consequences myself. My point is that in all dangerous jobs, the risks and likely consequences can be reduced. The poster above you about how injuries are a fact of working in trades is an example of the wrong attitude. Work can be done safer, and by a multitude of means. I agree that not all risk can be eliminated and incidents will occur, but (and not saying this applies to you) if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem.
  • 1 0
 @swillett116: Techs in the bike industry need to become specialized as soon as they can. A shop mechanic has a broad skill set that's not worth as much as a specialized technician in suspension or electronics. I had a long path in retail before I decided to take one last shot at the industry, luckily it paid off, but it wasn't easy. Technicians should consider race tech support or outside tech rep positions if they like to travel, and engineering technicians if they enjoy a lab setting.

 @mi-bike: but you said if his trades job is dangerous he is doing it wrong. Now you’re saying your job is dangerous. So does that mean you’re crap at your job??

 @plume: specializing in a specific area does help a *bit*. I’ve worked both in shops and for manufacturers with only a small bump in pay. I’m glad you found something that pays well. I personally just got sick of the industry (especially all the performative/virtue signaling BS on top of poor pay) and moved to a different one that affords me a quality of life that the bike industry could never give me, regardless of being a specialist of any type. I hope it continues to be a good industry for you, for real! It is fun when you can make it work.

 @axleworthington it’s why I left the bike/ ski industries for firefighting. Its indeed a bit more dangerous, but my pay doubled and gained a legit path to retirement. You work a lot of weekends which is a bummer when you are a parent, but you get to ski/ bike midweek without the crowds. When I retire from firefighting, I may go back to turning wrenches just for the fun of working in a bike shop again. I started working on the ski hill again just to get the family passes, and it’s been good to be back working on the hill again. Meanwhile, having enough pay to be comfortable in life and not living check to check is a big bonus.

 Just started as a first year apprentice in HVAC and I make more than I did as a bike mechanic with 10 years experience, extensive e-bike knowledge, my own tools, and 10/10 customer service.
I just couldn't handle peoples unrealistic expectations and bickering anymore. My mental health, my personal relationships, my time spent riding, and my wallet all love the change.

 80k/year a for a graphics designer that will define the look for a brand? Oneup, I love you guys and your stuff you make, but let's be real here, that's insanely low for that tier of designer let alone the cost of living there.

 @rideitall-bmx-dh-road-unicycle: 100%. And it's not just the bike industry. In my experience most of the outdoor sports market plays on peoples passion and excuses low wages for "interesting" work.

 Bike mechanics: do yourself a solid and get into a trade job. There is a huge demand for apprentices in skilled trades. You will have a clear path towards retirement, make a LOT more money and have better insurance (if you're working for a small bike shop you may not have any at all). Bike discounts don't mean much if you are living check to check and eating ramen your whole life.

 Considering what some of these companies charge for their products (Yeti!) and the current market for such roles, the compensation is woefully low. Makes me wonder, just who is the bulk of the profit going to. Most of these jobs entail a substantial amount of weekends as well. I would love to land a good gig in the MTB industry, but taking a 50+% pay cut and giving up my weekends to boot? Not me. Not even if they gave me a new bike for free every year! Recent graduates do that to build a career, experienced sales & marketing folks don't usually take that plunge.

 @mi-bike: I mean, she's an incredibly talented and successful Director of Marketing, and I'm a part time bike mechanic and full-time carer for our child.

But sure, I can't see why they wouldn't give me the job over her...

 A web position that isn't fully-remote? How 2019!

Seriously, good luck with that one. I used to be limited by my realistic commuting distance unless I was willing to uproot my family. Now, it's all Slack and Zoom, so the only limitation is the minor inconveniences of differing time zones. Everyone I know is taking advantage of this and changing jobs since the only way to get decent pay bumps is to change employers.

 “you'd be working 9 out of 10 business days in a two week period.”

Is this normal?!!

 i think this is a funny way of saying you get every other friday off, or 'compressed hours' as some in engineering call it (add half an hour to each day and then get every tenth off without affecting holiday)

 I take that as you work one 4 day week and one 5 day week - less than the ‘usual’ 5 day working week.

 There are also so many jobs in professional trail building available, almost every company I know has a shortage of builders. So if you want a cool job that’s physical and extremely rewarding become a trail builder!

 the fact that the vast majority of these jobs are marketing really says something about the modern US bicycle industry. Engineering and production all done in asia for pennies, paint & decal design, & expensive race teams done in the US.

 Silicon Valley. There's tons of machinist jobs here.

 Almost everywhere, even inside some major metro areas. If you can't get a bike industry machining job, work a non-bike machining gig for a couple of years and I promise you will have everything you need to get into the bike side. Even better, get a union machining job and actually make enough money to buy parts at retail.

 So what are the perks with these jobs? Products at cost?
  • 5 0
 Yes, you frequently get it at just above what it costs to manufacture/source, which is an even steeper discount over what shop employees get. It keeps you on the latest and greatest so long as you can either find a dirt-cheap living situation, are independently wealthy, or have a partner in a more conventional job to make real, adult money.
