Job Description
Are you looking for a job with a great company? Then look no further as Universal Cycles is looking for a new employee to join our team.

We are hoping to find a candidate that has a couple of years of bicycle repair work already under their belt, as we run at a fast pace and need somebody who can start off the first day running full gas. A basic knowledge of disc brakes, suspension and dropper posts would be nice, but is not something that you must have. Knowing how to build wheels is a must as we build up several sets per day. We are open seven days a week and this position would require working on weekends. We like a clean shop, so candidate shouldn’t mind cleaning restroom. We are a team here , managers clean too!

We have four shop cats, so the candidate should like cats.
