Enjoy This Episode: On this 77th edition of the podcast, Robb Zbierski of Beers For Gears is my guest. Robb has turned as what he calls “The Side Hustle” into a business that local bike riders have come to rely on. The concept is cool. If your bike isn’t in working order and you don’t know how to fix it, What do you do? You call Rob, offer him up some GOOD beer and a little bit of cash and he will have you back riding again in no time. In this information packed interview, Robb focuses on the essential things to keep your bike in perfect riding condition.
Within six weeks of opening Beers For Gears, four years ago, Robb’s wife asked him if he had been making any money. Robb replied, “yes, I have. Why?” “Because you are going to need to buy a new refrigerator to store all the beer you have been getting from your new venture.” his wife said.
What started with some Craig’s list and Facebook adds has now turned into quite the word of mouth operation. Robb started his career in the bicycle industry where he worked for 12 years honing his skills. His day job today is professional speaking, where he teaches and preaches efficiency.
With the creation of the Bears For Gears concept Rob Zbierski felt he needed an outlet, to continue using his skills and love, of working on bikes. His biggest pleasure, in running the business, is he gets to help people enjoy their experience by riding on a more efficient bike. And not to mention he loves a good beer.
If you are an avid bike rider or just the casual weekend rider you need to check out this interview. Robb Zbierski is going to give you some very helpful tips to enhance your experience. He is also a really entertaining guy. So don’t forget to bring the six pack of beer for this interview. It is required.
