what is was implying is that the manager my not have been thinking "she can't fix bikes she is a chick" as the article implied, but "the female costumers respond real well to her, I need to keep her selling". which is not bro culture, just shitty for someone who wants to be a mechanic but is more useful at sales. in reality this is probably not the case, but the article was phrased in a way that this could not possibly be the case.
