I love that I can look like any gender on a bike and feel no less powerful.
I’m one of only a handful of women that work at my shop, and I’m the only female mechanic. … I’ve heard that my presence at the shop makes our female customers feel more comfortable and welcome, and female and male genders alike have shown enthusiasm for a female mechanic. I just can’t wait for the day that I’m not an anomaly, and I’m looking for ways to push more women and femininity in bike culture, especially the technical side of things.
As a one time supervisor of three female mechanics — yes.
Very much worth reading.
