Mark Satinsky is every Transportation Security Administration agent's worst nightmare.  Most of us have to remove only our shoes, belts, watches, and cell phones to get through airport security. But Mark travels for business with 300 pounds of high-tech surveillance equipment, much of which has been handled by SWAT teams, who inadvertently taint the gear with explosives residue. In other words, Mark has a cozy relationship with alarms, flashing lights, and some very skeptical TSA personnel.  "It takes me two to three hours to get through security," he says. "I keep trying to figure out ways to make the process shorter, but I haven't been able to yet."  Given all that Mark endures while on the road, it's pretty understandable that he considers "the other side of security" to be his home away from home. It also explains why he's a self-proclaimed "Smarte Carte maven."  Still, Mark takes most of the inconveniences of the road warrior lifestyle in stride - with one exception.  "I don't have the time to do any biking these days," laments the man who once rode across Montana while battling a stiff headwind the entire way. "I think I've gained about 35 pounds in the last year."  So when we gave Mark the chance to combine his two passions - cycling and showing off his company's products - he didn't miss a beat.  "This is great!" he said during the photo shoot. "I could go all day!" Spoken like a true road warrior.
