Bike cleaning

After this week, my bike's really a mess.  I just found the brake mechanism sticking and the whole bike looks and feels kinda grungy.  I know I should do better, but it's very hard to find the time…Continue

"lol @Lisa.   Here is another vote for a bucket of warm water, some brushes, and a citrus-based spray cleaner.  A spray bottle with clean, warm water helps get into tight spots."

175 W. Jackson, 70 W. Madison

I'm going to change jobs before the end of the year, and two of the leading possibilities are at 175 W. Jackson and 70 W. Madison.  I was wondering if anybody here had any direct experience with or knowledge of the bike parking situation in either building.  I've been told that 175 Jackson has indoor parking near the loading dock, which sounds relatively secure, but I don't really have a sense of how things go during the summer.   And I really don't want to have to park a bike on the street…See More
