Jeff Schneider replied to Dave D's discussion Metal or Plastic Fenders for Touring/Commuting?
"I used Bluemels plastic fenders on touring bikes in the '80's.  I also rode a lot with no fenders (as was the style then).  The plastic fenders worked OK, but I was also not too demanding.   In recent years, I've used…"

"Over the years I've had plenty of close calls riding NB on Glenwood at night between Foster and Ridge. Lighting isn't very good. There are plenty of dark spots where it can be REALLY tough to see ninja salmon unless you have a very bright…"

" When I take Glenwood I cut over at Pratt to find another north south side street. No need to Salmon and Glenwood north of Pratt is a little narrow and claustrophobic. "

Eli replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion How to get to Evanston?
"Glenwood is two-way north of Ridge. Coming south, you can turn left onto Ridge for a block and then take Wayne south, or salmon about 20 feet on Glenwood and then take a quick right onto Edgewater, then a left onto Clark (at this point you're…"

Jeff Schneider replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion How to get to Evanston?
