Yes, this is indeed a bike-related post.If ever there was a game that was made for playing while riding your bicycle this is it. While this game is a MMORPG online -it also takes place OUTSIDE.…Continue
"I got burned one time trying to turn left by the cameras. Belmont and Kedzie. What a ridiculous intersection. I got screwed by a cab that was just sitting there at the curb on the other side of the intersection and decided to make…"
"The fine for speeding should be $1 for the first mph over the limit, plus $10 for the second mph. I'm not heartless and everyone makes mistakes.
For the third mph another $100 should be added to the previous $11. For the fourth mph…"
"I bought a Chainlink pint glass at the SWAP last month and it fits in nicely as a set with my Pedro's, Park Tool, and Working Bikes Pint glasses. It's a quality glass, comparable to the others in the mixed-label group of glassware.…"
"I think you should be able to easily ask $100+ for it soon. When it gets warmer in a couple of weeks I bet you could get nearly $125-150 for it if you cleaned it up really nice, took good photos, and wrote a little bit about its history and…"
"I think we have a winner.
Replacement econochrome 27" fork, and the addition of some sort of paddle stem-shifters for the DT shifters. Are they even 6-speed SIS compatible -or friction now? Would have to test-ride to see if indexing is…"
"It would be a lot more helpful if you were to post a photo of the drive side so folks could have a chance of identifying the components of the drivetrain that are in view. A non-driveside photo is like trying to ID a car by looking at its…"
"Effective enforcement would pay for itself. They wouldn't even need cops doing it, just "meter-reader' level folks in camera-cars that would record everything on camera act as evidence in court if they try and fight it.…"
"Until the cars are fully automatic and the human operator is taken out of the loop, any advances that help drivers see and avoid most or some of the obstacles for their speeding courses cutting through the city they will just use up any new…"
"There is no justice, there is just us.
The guy shouldn't be walking around free until he pays back every single person who's bike he stole. Every single damn cent.

"The type of pedal, like the type of tires I put on the bike, is totally dependent on the the type bike I'm riding and the specific purpose I am riding it for.
On my road bike (basically a rando bike although I never ride more than 200k) I use…"
"Not worth the effort for a 501 bike.
This is a bizarre break though. It makes me wonder if the original framebuilder just got the seat tube too hot when originally brazing the BB onto it and damaged the temper of the steel and this…"
"I have written in Sharpie all around the rim-tape inside the rims on my bikes in large visible letters: THIS BIKE IS STOLEN! PLEASE CALL (my phone number)

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.
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.
