Southern Cyclist/Mechanic

I've biked since I could, commuted for about 15 years by bike alone. I do own a truck or two.
I have a dog named Leonard. My hometown and my birthplace is New Orleans, Louisiana. I am town proud.
We cycle year round here and cyclists are bound, determined, and independent.
I ride more for fun and exercise these days, but can see a return to commuting soon.
The bike lifestyle was so much simpler and cheaper, but occasionally hairy.
I ride a Seven Cycles Sola Ti built very nicely and updated regularly.
I have a Schwinn Heavy Duti w/ a Nuvinci CVT Rear Wheel, a Bikes-at-work trailer,
and An Allsop Softride from 1988- last updated in 1997, and maybe
a Seven Axiom Steel w/ SRAM Force / Ksyrium SSC/SL if I can find time to ride it.
Spoiled? Yes. Worked? That too. Work hard, play nice, live right... according to my rules which are easy.
I don't like being hurried or people in a rush. Otherwise I'm easy.
I run a retail bicycle shop.
The best job that doesn't pay as well as it is hard to do. I'd do it for free if I could.
I am a bit lawless, but where's the fun of goose-stepping along with silly rules.

Welcome ! Sounds like you're just fine. Laissez les bons temps rouler !
I rented an Allsop Softride awhile back, different.
