We already have a number of biker bars in Minneapolis that we are trying to shut down. I will not approve another biker bar. This place will open over my dead body!

this business is talking about the type of bar for NON-motorized types of bikes. they are not referring to the type of bars you would most likely see Harley's in front of. in other words pedal bikes. like many children are taught to ride type bikes. and many adults ride as well.

Thank you for taking interest Sangelia. The type of bar we are designing inside of our new location would be more akin to the "genius bar" found at Apple stores. We are creating a starting point for knowledge and a guided tour through the custom bicycle build process based on our framesets. We hope you can stop by once we open to talk with us.

my husband would be the one more likely to ride. since I've been banned by my chiropractor from ever riding a regular bike again.

sorry. but I'm not related to you. I do not have Möbius Syndrome.
.
in order to be considered to be a aspie. at least till May 2013. after that DSM-1 aka high functioning autism. one has to have average to high intelligence. in fact, many aspies tend to end up in the IT departments of places with computers.
.
we aspies do not drool, bang our heads, or talk like some of your family does.
.
http://www.asperger-advice.com/asperger-intel... Most people with Asperger are also very intelligent. High intelligent children and adults often developed asynchronously.
.
http://www.paulcooijmans.com/asperger/straigh... Asperger diagnosis is by convention only given to persons who are not mentally handicapped.
.
http://www.specialolympicswisconsin.org/athle... Individuals with Asperger's Syndrome generally do not qualify for Special Olympics for two reasons:
...There is no intellectual delay associated with Asperger's Syndrome
...While individuals with Asperger's Syndrome may lack social and practical intelligence, they typically do not lack the conceptual intelligence associated with academic learning and general life functioning. In order to qualify for Special Olympics, an individual must have substantial deficits in conceptual, practical and social intelligence.
.
I have noticed something. if you look at the stereotyping of a nerd: intelligent, singleminded about things, clumsy, high word comprehension for a few things. then look at the medical findings about folks with aspergers. you will find that they match up almost exactly. not every nerd is a aspie. nor is every aspie a nerd. but many of us are both.
.
as for me, when I am not in front of the computer. my language is much more formal.

So riding around after taking the seat off wasn't such a good idea?
get your mind out of the gutter.

no, in my case I threw my back out doing charity work in the metro here. my ex refused to let me see a doctor. my spine is now crooked. and my pelvis is canted. and I have a limp. I'm stuck using a cane and braces to walk. farthest distance I can walk is a half mile at a time.
.
it is for those reasons my chiropractor banned me from riding a bicycle. since it would put too much pressure on my back and legs to ride one. he also banned me from some forms of housework. as in vacuuming. again. too hard on my back muscles.
