I recently lost all my keys at Lolla this weekend and do not have a spare anymore. I was going through the posts and saw that you have an angle grinder. My bike is right by my car in the river east parking garage and was wondering if you could help me out. If you can message me so I can give you my number that would be amazing. Thanks.

I wish I knew how heavy.  Soma would have a better number anyway.

While parking my 1967 RSW folder at the train station this morning, a non-biking contemporary struck up a conversation. Turns out he still has two 60's English Raleighs in his basement that "no one wants". He lives near the Metra Ravinia Station in Highland Park. If you get this message (not sure about Chainlink messaging) and are the least bit interested, I'll be happy to pass on your name and email address. Let me know.
