I know I do. I'm sick of wading through classifieds. So if anyone out there is looking to hire someone. Maybe you should post it here and give your fellow cyclists a chance.
What are you looking for...what are you're qualifications? nmMXL02

ideal job?ColnagoFE

I get as much time off as I want with little or no pay deduction. Shop discount on gear? Allows me to be outside on occasion and telecommute also. Pays as well and has the same benefits as my current tech job. Work would be something I'm passionate about and provides a challenge and opportunities for professional development. Not just "busy work". Company should operate ethically and treat all employees with respect regardless of title. Cubes outlawed. Should be fun. Something I'd do if I wasn't getting paid. If I won the lottery it's be nice to explore vocations where I didn't have to worry about pay or benefits. Might have a better chance of finding something like this then, but until that mortgage is paid off...gotta dream on. Anyone found that job yet? Would love to hear about it.

President of the United States. It's a great gig if you can get it. It seems to meet all your qualifications, except for the part about the shop discount. But then who needs a discount when you can drop a hint to Trek and they'll send Lance over to present you with a 5900 custom labeled with "POTUS" on the top tube?
So did "W" get a 5900??PaulCL

I would be impressed if he road it. "W" is a runner and appears to be in great shape unlike his predecessor. I think Clinton ran to McDonalds and home.

Remember how the media used to show Clinton running all the time early in his term??? Later on I guess he got enough exercise elsewhere, maybe under a desk....hey, it burns calories!!!

I thought Lance gave him a bike at some point, probably in 2001, but it was probably a 5200 with Ultegra. If I were President, I would drop some serious hints about upgrading!

Get to choose which cases you want to hear. pay is good and benefits out the wazoo. and you get to wear a cool black robe- perfect for hidding the bike jersey under for the lunch rides. And talk about job security
