Grace Van Moer 8.25 mi replied to jolondon30's discussion Lawrence Avenue Streetscape Almost Done!
"Really wish they had put buffers on the bike lanes.  The bike lane is tight to the parking, and the parking is just wide enough for a vehicle, so basically the whole bike lane is in the door zone.  Bummer.  That said, at least…"

"Happy customer chiming in...the modification to the hub is GREAT.  So much better.  I originally chose the SRAM 2-speed because many years ago I had an old Schwinn with a 2-speed kick back that I loved.  I figured new technology would…"

Grace Van Moer 8.25 mi replied to kg himself's discussion New to riding downtown. Any tips?
"Madison west of Wacker past the expressway is chaos - bike lane disappears, buses, cabs, peds rushing for train stations, car commuters racing for the expressway make that stretch very scary IMO.  Use Randolph instead if you need to get over to…"

Grace Van Moer 8.25 mi replied to h' 1.0's discussion Bikeshare users-- what are you doing about helmets?
"Haven't used one yet, but I too will probably purchase a 2nd helmet to keep at my desk.  Almost all of my Divvy trips so far have originated from my office at Dearborn & Madison on days when I don't have my bike/helmet available.…"
