New: Take Part in the February Giveaway for a Chance to Win 2x METRO Hybrid Bikes

Hello everyone!
Hello all,

Shawn here Smile Active cyclist and soon to be Bicycle Repair business owner. Getting my building setup tomorrow and very excited. I will be doing the small stuff at first but figured why not join up and learn more so I can tackle bigger things that will bring in better money. Smile

I live in southern Illinois, USA... I am 28, male and into road biking and mountain biking. Its cycling heaven where I am, rural, hills, nice paved roads, big bike trails/paths and lost of MTB trails.

Besides cycling, I run quite a few message forums, blogs and even social networks. I am into photography and I chase storms, yep tornadoes! Member of the NRA, Illinois Rifle Association and a big gun nut! Freemason and a Shriner... That sums me up! Just a laid back country boy here!

Thanks for having me Smile
