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

David Barish replied to Sachin Kashyap's discussion Hello Chainlink!
"I filled it out.  It looks like a New York mentality to  me. You can have anything delivered anytime. With a Type A life and unlimited resources this works for food and entertainment in ye olde Apple. I am not so sure about here and not so…"

David Barish replied to A.K.A Paul's discussion Gothamist: $250 Fine For SUV Driver Who Deliberately Plowed Into Cyclist During Road Rage Incident.
"I completely understand. What I am really trying to say is I care way more  about the cyclist than the driver in this case. If a choice has to be  made, and I don't really want to make one, I am more concerned with the cyclist being…"

David Barish replied to A.K.A Paul's discussion Gothamist: $250 Fine For SUV Driver Who Deliberately Plowed Into Cyclist During Road Rage Incident.
"I guess having been fortunate enough to not be a victim of a crime I don't hanker for a pound of flesh. I agree that the fine is silly compared to the evil of the act. I have problems with what appear to be decisions from above on whether to…"

David Barish replied to jimbo's discussion Reporting D*ckhead Bike Messengers
"in my non- scientific anecdotal experience I find messengers frequenting the loop are much less likely to plow in to me  and ride with reckless abandon than in days of yore. I am not sure if this will be taken as an insult or a compliment. "

David Barish replied to BritBoy's discussion Perceptions of cyclists
"I am not so sure if this is the case.  There are both cyclists and drivers who project status in their vehicles whether its a two wheeled Seven or a four wheeled Jaguar. The rest of the world uses their vehicles for transportation and…"

David Barish replied to Kevin C's discussion Road Construction Report(s)
"Main Street in Skokie between Crawford and McCormick is almost done. A nice black flat surface is there. The project is not quite done. I think some road markings and perhaps another layer will be put down. The ride on that stretch was significantly…"

David Barish replied to Haddon's discussion Thoughts on the P.A.C.E. (Post Antagonism Chainlink Era)
"OK, lets be blunt here.  I specifically commented that your first comment was tongue in cheek.  You have now called  Andronoymous a "shitliberal". I do not take that as tongue in cheek but as a direct personal attack.…"

David Barish replied to Haddon's discussion Thoughts on the P.A.C.E. (Post Antagonism Chainlink Era)
"I take the first reply as tongue firmly in cheek; the second as an indication that the op was correct given their previous history; and the third as a healthy challenge to us all.  (sigh)  Still, in the past we would already be at a bad…"

David Barish replied to Haddon's discussion What happened to biking hand signals?
"I use them all the time. I have used bike hand signals when walking. If the sidewalk is crowded I will signal that I am about to turn left into the Starbucks. I really wish more people would signal their intention on bikes and  in  cars.…"

David Barish replied to Amy Dee's discussion How late in the winter season is reasonable for riding?

David Barish replied to Amy Dee's discussion How late in the winter season is reasonable for riding?
"ENvane and MK gave you good advice. Trails are bad during the winter and stay wet longer than roads. Not all of them get plowed. There are plenty of decent  roads you can take and based on the trails you like to use I suspect there is a…"

David Barish replied to Skip Montanaro 12mi's discussion Three things all cyclists and motorists should do
"Skip, you should blog more often. You have something to say and express it in a way that is easy on the eyes. I think your three points bear repetition for anybody who did not hit the link. The common thread to me behind your points is empathy. You…"
