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
