I am moving in a few weeks to the Kansas City area. I have a question regarding pay as a bike mechanic in this area. Coming from a large urban city in the south, I have made between 14.00/hr and 16.00/hr. On a recent interview I was offered 8.50/hr. For a skilled mechanic, good with people, not afraid to hit the sales floor, and work any hours/shifts asked including weekends is this normal? What are you guys making in this area? Any advice would be helpful. I am moving with my wife near the middle of August. Thanks for your time..
