    Hey there potential hire! You clicked so I guess you're intrigued, good, let me tell you more...

    We’re a new company that does bicycle repairs a little differently. In short, customers book services and repairs online, we go to collect the bikes and work on them in our London Fields (E8) workshop, then we send them back. It is a simple enough concept that gives our customers convenience and means our mechanics work in a nice workshop, unlike some of our "on-demand" competitors.

    We’re looking for someone who can really work closely with us to deliver top notch services to our customers. Specifically, you’ll need to fix all sorts of bikes, be on camera (hence superstar), drive a van, be nice to customers, and do random jobs to keep the workshop running smoothly. We’re also looking for someone who can take the initiative during down-times to help us get customers and grow the company, whatever that may be (Social Media posts / videos?)

    Working hours would be 9am – 6pm, 5 days a week, at our London Fields E8 workshop. We’ll be running a 3 month initial probation period, fully paid of course, to make sure you’re a good fit for us and happy with the range of work you’ll be doing.

    So if the above sounds good and you have the experience to confidently route internal cables, bleed RX4 calipers to perfection, and strip an Alfine hub without losing your shit, then drop me a CV –> simon@honorcycles.com

    I'm potentially interested for a 29er beater build. What size of wheels did it originally come with? Can't seem to find reliable info online, some say 700c, some say "MTB".

    UPDATE: We've managed to get someone in for the week, so this is now closed.

    However, if you're interested, please email your CV to hello@honorcycles.com and we'll let you know when new work comes in or a full-time position opens up.

    Hello there, we need a freelance mechanic part-time over the next couple of weeks.

    We have a workshop in the Five Points Brewery warehouse in Hackney, it's a cool space (literally, bring warm clothes if you're interested!) with tunes and beer. You'll need to be confident working on bikes like Bromptons, Dutch things, and your normal Hybrid commute rigs.

    Shift dates are likeley to change around, but it looks like it would be about 2 days per week for now. Ideally you'll want to be local to us so you can come in on short notice when there is work to do, and go somewhere warm when there isnt.

    DM me if you're interested :)
