MECHANIC POSITION AVAILABLE

We are looking for one mechanic to fill a full-time, year-round position in a busy, independent bike shop in downtown Golden. The position requires a person well-rounded as a shop employee with at least two years experience, with an emphasis on performing consistent and high-quality repairs and the ability to write thorough service tickets. Our focus as a shop is on high-end mountain bikes, so a familiarity with suspension components, full suspension linkage systems, and hydraulic disc brakes is a major plus. We can do some training, but it won't be long before are slammed with a repair schedule sometimes booked out two weeks or more, so being largely up-to-speed is a requirement.

Pay is hourly and negotiable, depending on experience and ability. Perks include the industry connections available when working in the leading mountain bike shop of the Front Range, casual work environment with the best group of folks you'll ever work with, and access, even encouraged use, of our extensive fleet of bitchin' Cameros... er, demo bikes.

GBS' Fatty Tubeless History & How-to

Years ago we were hanging out after work and one of our employees started talking about how he wished he could set his Pugsley up tubeless. We all knew this had to be possible - we'd never seen it done, but it has to be a thing... right?

A few Google searches later we stumbled across a video shot in someones shed in the middle of the Great White North (Alaska, eh), with poor audio, and low resolution... After watching it a few times, we finally got the process figured out. Some Gorilla tape, a few matches, some ether and a missing eyebrow later, we had tubeless. He rode his new tubeless system without issue for months, outstanding!

We decided to offer tubeless setup commercially, granted, we were not excited about using exploding-tire method to set up customer bikes tubeless, so we decided to experiment further. After several attempts and nearly burning our compressor out trying to seat the beads, we realized that the tires typically adhered themselves to the rim on their own once inflated with a tube.

And thus, our tubeless technique was born.

After converting many fatties over to the dark side, we knew many were approaching the setup on their own - rad! We all started by wrenching on our bikes in our garages. We thought we'd put a how-to video together for all the DIYers out there. There's a lot of techniques out there if you're surfing the forums; over the past few years we've averaged over 30 fatbike tubeless conversions per season, we've refined our method and it's tried and true.
