Become a qualified bicycle mechanic
If you are a mechanic then you should be qualified with a proven body, repairing a customer’s bicycle without a recognised qualification leaves you wide open to litigation.
If you’re a bicycle shop offering repairs then you are wide open to litigation without recognised mechanics. Your bicycle mechanics if qualified should be registered with the IPBMA
