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

Two tickets to Ratdog at Ravinia 8-31 available at face value

I have two extra tickets available for Ratdog at Ravinia. Ravinia is a great destination for cycling. The tickets are $60 each. They are in the pavillion but are near the back. You have a seat and…Continue

Condition of North Shore Channel Trail?

Does anybody know the current condition of this trail? Is it plowed during the winter months? Would you recommend that I use it or is it better to use Kedzie riding in from the north  this time of…Continue

"Lee, thank you for  your deft touch. I think restraint is a good policy. A little dirt will fly but as cyclists we ought to be used to that. I think this thread has exceeded my expectations in the wake of this week's communication.…"

"Sure, you could spend your weekend riding or perhaps reading some literature. That being said, I know a lot of literate folks who like to watch shows about housewives of whatever burg. We all have our guilty pleasures.  For your reading…"

"After deleting over 200 e-mails because I was foolhardy enough to post to that thread I certainly understand Doug's concern.  However, I thought that the bullies etc thread was the perfect repository for this kind of nonsense. Leave the…"
David Barish replied to Nikul Shah's discussion Chainlink's Bullies, Trolls - What to do?
"If this thread can be the landing place I think we can all live with it. Somewhere beneath the surface are some issues that are worthwhile. If this where they can be found we can return to regularly scheduled programming elsewhere on the forum.…"
David Barish replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"+1 My ride was trouble free today.  No bad behavior. Anybody who experienced such, please tells us about it. We are hungering to hear about it. "
David Barish replied to Nikul Shah's discussion Chainlink's Bullies, Trolls - What to do?
"The name of this thread is somewhat charged as I do not know if we would agree on who the bullies and trolls are. Still, some threads seem to get derailed by the passion of the players. I say this without blaming anybody but in asking EVERYBODY to…"
David Barish replied to Chitown_Mike's discussion Pic of your commuter
"That makes sense. I would have considered a touring bike like a Surly but the Trek, although not cheap, was less than the Surly. I already have a road bike that I like. Still, I regret not buying my cousin's Lemond when he decided to get…"
David Barish replied to Chitown_Mike's discussion Pic of your commuter
"In 2012 I sold my beloved Nishiki Olympic to get another person on the road and bought myself a commuter. I had the idea of getting a dutch style bike with an internal hub and dynamo but my commute is 13-16 miles depending on the route. On The Route…"
David Barish replied to milesperhour's discussion Your help please
"The forum worked. Self policing is much better than the other kind. Based on the horns on the handlebars I wonder if the owner has seen the movie Tampopo."

David Barish replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2014- who's still riding?
"If that is his get up today I suspect there are no bike winter stickers on his bike. He won't be out when it gets below 50. I still had sandals and a t shirt for my ride. "

David Barish replied to Matt Talbert's discussion Footage of a driver getting into the bike lane and parking
"This seems unclear. It seems that two legitimate uses are at cross purposes here. I wonder if the powers that be who created both  a loading zone and a bike lane were aware that they created an anomaly or whether two different agencies…"

"I sent a Facebook Message to Jason McInnes at the Old Town School. He will be leading the jam on Thursday from 830 to 10pm. They will sing a song for Dan. Jason said that Dan had been one of his students. I don't think I can get there Thursday…"
