  • Ideally you are an experienced bicycle sales person with 2+ years experience working in the bicycle shop environment. However, if you qualify strongly in other aspects and you have retail rather than bike shop specific experience, this may still be a great fit.
  • You are attuned to bikepacking bicycles and related products.
  • You are highly organized with great attention to detail, including being very diligent about maintaining safe, organized and clean working environments.
  • You are a great communicator with customers and employees.
  • You are comfortable supporting your co-workers in their roles while also appreciative of the benefit of them supporting you.

  • You are a dedicated, possibly life long (long term) cyclist. If you are not already a bikepacker you are ready to become one.
