For real!  I found a nice girl who lives near California and Diversey and I finally asked her out.  Wait... it gets better.  When I asked out, she invited me to her place and is going to cook me…Continue

"Hey Jacob.  You might misunderstand me, but I ride a fixie.  I was saying that traction FEELS improved when I'm riding fixed.  I feel I have more control on cornering on a fixie than on a coasting bike.  I don't know if…"

Juan Primo replied to JM 6.5's discussion Deadspin: Can You Ride A Bike In The City Without Being An A*@hole? (No.)
"That article was more about the author than about cycling.  There's a literary movement that's been around for a while... The Bemused New Yorker.  It gets old fast. If he talked more about biking than himself biking I may have…"

Juan Primo replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"As a person who lived in a corner apartment near an alley, people who honk at the end of an alley are rude.  It's your duty to LOOK for pedestrians, including the vulnerable deaf and earbudded pedestrians.  Do not honk at the end of…"

Juan Primo replied to Chitown_Mike's discussion Smashed my classic road bike :(
"I disagree with you on old Schwinns.  They were quality-made bicycles opposed to what you find in Wal Mart bikes.  You see Schwinns on your commute every day that are 40 or 50 years old with original parts.  These bikes do a lot of…"

Juan Primo replied to Bez's discussion A few mechanic questions...
"A long time ago I saw some kind of extenders that you bolt to your levers.  You can reach the extenders from your hand position on the bar ends.  I guess if it was a good idea, I'd have seen more of them around."

Juan Primo replied to Vilda's discussion Ultimatum for the bike thieves from the Loop Campus of Depaul at 9:15 pm
"You do want to dial it down, Gabe in Security.  You've already identified who you are, where you work, and what you do, the fact that you do your personal stuff at work, and made a specific aggravated sexual assault threat."

Juan Primo replied to Steven Vance's discussion Chicago bike sharing will be known as Divvy, be Chicago flag blue
"I saw a lot of Divvys on the streets yesterday.  They had installed a new Divvy station at Michigan and East Lake Shore Drive, pretty much blocking the pedestrian area from the north side of ELSD to Michigan btw. Lots of Divvys cruising around…"
