    ....huh, so someone doing this job could potentially write off all their bike related purchases on their taxes as a work expense, right?

    That's pretty awesome.

    Since this is Marin County, hopefully "salary TBD" means six figures + new bike of my choice; if so, I'm in!

    It's Fairfax, not Mill Valley, which means you will probably be paid in karma points or some form of bartering.
