Bike week Karma
2 Replies

I have not ridden my commuter in about a week. I forgot that it had been low in pressure the last time I rode it. I topped it off that time and told myself I needed to change the tube. When I got…Continue

"I could not get your map. I assume you are starting near the Oberweis Dairy on Northwest Hwy just south of Central. I have ridden in that area. You can take side streets of your choice to get yourself to downtown Des-Plaines without killing…"

"Is Lebron's seat a little low?  Ever since I saw a video of him riding in Miami Critical Mass I have been a fan, except when he plays against the locals. "

David Barish replied to jolondon30's discussion Stolen Bikes Recovered with Help of Heritage Bicycles and CPD
" I met him when he was involved with a union protecting bicycle messengers. We sat down for a beer and talked about the issues they face. I did not know that he is now a mechanic. Next time, the beer is on me! "

David Barish replied to jolondon30's discussion Stolen Bikes Recovered with Help of Heritage Bicycles and CPD
"I read and heard a lot of lousy news today- conflict in Gaza, children mistreated by border agents, bodies still in a field in the Ukraine etc. Then I read the story about Ben Fietz bike mechanic and stolen bike sleuth and it made my day. "

David Barish replied to Louis K's discussion Rear Facing Camera Catches Driver (Deliberately?) Hit Cyclist
"Having seen the video we do know how close the cyclist was to the white line. That is no longer  an issue and the only remaining one is whether the driver of the truck is evil, intentionally running him over or whether he is incompetent,…"

David Barish replied to Damir's discussion church st. going west to n. branch trail
"I use this route going west. Coming east I just stay on Church all the way. As long as you are comfortable riding with moderate traffic this is a very good route. "

David Barish replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Bitter battle between motorists and bikers
"Without regard to the merits or demerits of the internal combustion engine it appears that neither of you use one and the enthusiasm for the topic has turned personal for no apparent reason. Rather than preaching to the choir it appears that you…"

David Barish replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion Crosswalk Chicken
"Its legal but I think encouraging people to cross mid street is not good policy. Nobody knows how to make a decision and react. I think that pedestrians should have the supreme right of way at intersections and should not be crossing elsewhere…"

David Barish replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion Crosswalk Chicken
"I have mixed feeling about these crosswalks. Overall, given that yield didn't do the job I understand Stop. That being said I think they make for some problems. I see crosswalks near my train station.  Pedestrians and drivers will sit and…"

David Barish replied to Marion's discussion Evanston cyclist killed by motorcycle
"This has haunted me. My wife had a doctor's appointment across the street from the library and came upon the scene after the accident. She saw the emergency vehicles and the bike and motorcycle lying on the roadway. A car was also hit."

"You still do not know if he is a douche in a car, a cop on a mission into which you have interfered, a cop who is intoxicated and is currently neither serving nor protecting. Your original comment is a judgement call. I would likely ride by and…"

David Barish replied to Kat's discussion May have witnessed bike theft - wwyd?
"It sounds like a story and  not a crime based on your description. He sounds awfully casual for a thief. Is a thief going to wait for a bus? If so its a thief with a carbon fiber fork and brass balls. "

David Barish replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"The Wells st. picture is great. It must have been almost invisible when you started. I rode off at 5:50 and am a couple miles west of you but I could not see to the end of my block."
