WINTER!

So I see that if you do not shovel the snow in front of your home you can be fined up to $500. what about the city's property like, bridges, walk ways in front of empty lots owned by the city, what about riding to work in the streets taking up the lane cause the city doesn't plow curb to curb so bike lane doesn't get cleaned. what about bike lanes where the markings a worn off completely anyway? I can go on and on , whats your rant?See More

"Actually, the rear wheel will be centered, just with the same dish that it had as a multi-speed wheel.  You just have to arrange the cog and spacers to make a good chainline with the chainring. Conversion kits containing spacers and a…"

"you can, depending on the hub type,  but the rear tire won't be centered..   you would need to get the rim trued by someone who has the right tool (Park truing stand usually) and knows how to do it.. "

George,  Tell your wife about Women Bike Chicago's Day of Dialogue and Demonstration scheduled for April 12, 2014 at Dvorak Park from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  We will be posting an event on the Chainlink soon with more information.    We have panel discussion put on by women to help other women become comfortable riding bikes.  We even bring a bunch of our own bikes so others can try riding them to see what they like.

Quit spamming groups all up in here.  It is in bad taste; especially when you are posting the items for sale in a bike shops group.

 

Stop being an a-hole.
