Professional Repairs, Builds, & Tune–ups

At Broadway, we take pride in our quality repairs. We fix bicycles expertly, from minor repairs, flats, and adjustments to package deals such as tune-ups and overhauls. We love what we do, so you can be sure that we’ll fix your bike better than anyone. All of our repairs go through a full double safety check. We always test ride your bike before we give it the thumbs up to make sure your bike is safe and performing as it should!

No appointment necessary—just bring your bike in and we can give you a free estimate. You can leave the bike with us, or schedule a more convenient time.

Classes & Seminars

We love fixing bikes, and we’ve been sharing that love—and skills—in our classes for 30+ years. We host classes for all cyclists and the bikecurious, including classes and intentional spaces for FTW (femme, trans, women) bikers, such as our monthly Grrrease Time, an open shop and teaching time for FTW folks.

Worker Owned Since 1972

We’re a worker owned cooperative in operation for 40+ years. To quote our friends at Equal Exchange,

“A worker cooperative is an alternative for-profit structure based upon standard democratic principles. It is not designed to maximize profits, nor returns to investors, but rather to bring to the workplace many of the rights and responsibilities that we hold as citizens in our communities. These principles include one-person/one-vote equality; open access to information (i.e., open-book management); free speech; and the equitable distribution of resources (such as income).”

Because of this we adhere to the 7 Cooperative Principles which includes upholding worker rights and participating in our community for the better.We are proud to offer a minimum wage of $15 per hour and health insurance for full time workers.

Walking into a bicycle shop for the first time can be an intimidating endeavor for many, which is why Broadway strives to create a welcoming environment for all persons that come through our door.

Broadway Bicycle in Cambridge is Hiring Mechanics for the 2018 Season!

Posted June 9th, 2017

 

About Broadway:

We’re a collectively run and locally owned bicycle shop that has been in operation since 1972. A subset of workers own and democratically manage the business. As a full-service bike shop, we both repair and sell new and used bikes. Our tools and space are also made available for rent, so folks can come in and fix their own bikes by themselves or with one-on-one assistance from a mechanic. In the evenings we offer classes on the topic of bicycle maintenance and repair. Several times throughout the year, we provide on location mechanical services for local business and organizations. Also we are proud to offer a $15 per hour starting wage.

Walking into a bicycle shop for the first time can be an intimidating endeavor for many, which is why Broadway strives to create a welcoming environment for all persons that come through our door.

 

Job Description:

We have open positions for bicycle mechanics, whose responsibilities will also include customer service and sales. This is full-time (~40) hours per week from February — April 2018 (start dates vary from early Feb to the start of April and full-time does not begin until April) through the end of October 2018 with the expectation that mechanics will work one and sometimes two weekend days. This is a fast paced work environment that often requires workers to jump back and forth between the roles of mechanic and salesperson many times over the course of a shift. Employees are hired “at-will” but due to the seasonal nature of the business there is a period which usually begins at the start of November when little to no hours will be available.

It is NOT a prerequisite that you have previous shop experience, only that you have a passion for bicycles and working on them. We will provide the necessary training in all aspects of the position. We encourage people of color, LGBTQIA folks and women and gender minorities to apply.

If you are interested in applying please fill out the 2018 Broadway Bicycle Application and drop it by the shop or email it to broadway [ at ] broadwaybicycleschool [ dot ] com.
