    Thinking of going back into retail management. I miss the customer service end of it. Going to see if my buddy can get me into Dick's as a manager. I'm a golfer and fisherman, so it would be a cool job. Not to mention they have a bike department.

    I break things, then charge the owners of the things I break to repair them. But every now and then, someone comes to me with their crap already broken and I just charge them to fix it.

    Gotta love the life of an auto mechanic.

    Great photo! Thanks for sharing.

    I've never met Johnny, but Jim is genuinely one of the nicest guys I've ever met. I wish I could work with him more often, but we're on opposite coasts

    I work as a fire (property) claims trainer for a large insurance company. They moved me from Florida to Atlanta last year, so my mountain biking became a lot better. A little less flat here. 😉

    I'm a Physician Assistant. I live in Bellingham WA. I work at the hospital and have some pretty sucky long night hours, but it gives me about 10-12 days a month that I can get out for biking, hiking, fly fishing or skiing. All of which are great in this area

    That's very cool! I have a friend who shattered his hip and pelvis. He was telling me all the things that they had to do to him. I had to sit down half way through because I got light headed. I can't believe the things they can do to a person these days. And, I seriously don't know if I could go through what he went through. What you guys can do is simply a miracle. I had my face reconstructed after an accident. That was almost thirty years ago and I wish I could find that surgeon and shake his hand and thank him. What he did for me was amazing and life changing.

    Thats cool. I live in Chandler,AZ but didn't make it to the race today. Watched it on TV. You guys need to fix that 54 car. Do you get a chance to ride during the season? There are a lot of trails over by PIR. Grant

    I'm a chemist by training. I spent over a decade in the pharmaceutical industry doing drug discovery and design, focused mainly on disorders of the central nervous system. I was lots of fun at parties Eventually restructuring and a changing job market forced a change, and I am now a project manager for a contract pharmaceutical manufacturer. It is less dynamic, but more stable. I can appreciate that given my current family obligations.

    I used to be a corporate marketing cube jockey, but last summer I finally decided to leave and do something I truly love. End product... way more work than I ever expected, but I'm finally doing something I look forward to every day. I've never been able to say that before.

    I own a mountain bike adventure travel company.... so I ride bikes, take pictures, and hang with other like-minded people all day. (Chasing Epic Mountain Bike Adventures ? All-Inclusive, Guided Mountain Bike Trips to Epic Destinations Across the Rocky Mountains and Desert Southwest - I won't make this a spam post)

    I am a planner by trade. I used to work in affordable housing but recently changed jobs and now work in transportation with my state DOT. I get to touch some trails and bicycle stuff but it is not the focus of my job.

    I now take the train to work and have a 10-12 mile bike commute as well (depends on which station I get off at).

    Smmokan, I am excited by your venture! It is an idea I have entertained as well so good on ya for taking the plunge! New Mexico is in the southwest too - don't forget about us! Best of luck.

    Yep... I'd love to expand into Santa Fe/Taos/Angel Fire in 2017. For now though, I think 7 locations will work.

    High school math and programming teacher.

    At one point I was running the school mountain bike team and ski club. Despite the pennies I made per hour in those clubs, I could accurately say I was being paid to ski and bike!

    It's also awesome to have all summer to ride and also be able to be on the trails almost any given day of the year by 2:30 in the afternoon!

    Iíve actually been using the forums under Santa Cruz and a few others. I was very active with Michiganís MMBA.org forum and need to find a new venue. Mtbr looks to fit the bill.

    First of all I'd like to thank all of you for contributing to this thread. 7 years and over 1200 posts - Wow!!!

    With all of this data, the OP and I have come up with some very interesting trends that we'd like to share:

    Doctors, lawyers, and Wall Street professionals tend to have the best bikes, cars, and racks and lots of hot biker chicks to hang out with. Go figure.

    Plumbers, electricians and bike mechanics will more often that not do their own maintenance of their bikes.

    126 of you responded that you were male prostitutes and I think I speak for everyone here when say a hearty 'thank you' for your service. You've got one of the toughest jobs around that many us just don't have the cojones to do. Interesting enough, the male prostitutes among us also tend to favor spandex to baggies. Go figure.

    Keep the responses coming and we'll report back soon as we crunch more numbers.

    (ps - I'm a dentist/male prostitute)

    I'm an independent sales representative in the building products industry.

    I do maintain and work on my own bikes when time allows. However, I'd rather pay my LBS $xxx to install or tune my bike than spend X hours in my shop doing it. I'd prefer to be out riding. Between my wife and I, we have 15 bikes. So if one's in the shop, there's always a back up in the stable. I do enjoy working on bikes but just don't always have time.
