"DID YOU LOSE A BIKE IN WICKER PARK/NOBLE SQUARE AREA? SAT 5/16/2015
This morning there was an unlocked bike leaning against a pole on the corner of Blackhawk and Greenview. 10 hours later I noticed it was still there. I took a look and…"
"Didn't know that about the colnago, but the zipp/hed/spinergy wheels are probably not worth too much especially if they can't accept 11 speed cassettes, the specialized transition looks like it's worth about 700-1000 which is still…"
"Those look like some pretty old inventory. Depending on the pricing, it might be legit. It is a bit unusual but selling 4-6 year old race bikes at lowish prices isn't too crazy. I can't imagine the market is all that…"
"Just a friendly reminder: Here's the list of things to do after your bike is stolen.
For a slightly better chance of getting it back, I'd also recommend taking photos and writing up a full description/profile of your bike on Bike…"
"I agree all necessary things were done. Also each situation may not be as different
But the equipment may. I understand there is a great deal of crime. Also if we continue to be pa
Passive and ignore it it will never stop either."
Austin, Chicago Community Area #25 sits seven miles due west of the Loop. It is one of Chicago’s largest Community Areas and was founded in 1865 by Henry Austin.

"Kryptonite's insurance requires jumping through many hoops and depending on the level of the lock, the amount of the claim may not come near to the price of the bike, although every bit helps. Good luck recovering it or getting insurance money.…"
"Also curious. If he left the lock behind as you stated in the Chicago stolen bike page, and it's a kryptonite lock, you may be eligible for an insurance claim with them. I also don't mean to contradict you, but the increase of stolen bikes…"

What brings you to The Chainlink?
I am a 40 year-old cyclist that has been bicycling since I can remember. I am a transplant to the Chicago area and have been in the city since 1995 when I moved here with my wife to open a record store. I have been hosting monthly bike tours of different Chicago neighborhoods since March of 2008. You can see more about them here:
Hi Lee, that message disappeared when I accepted the friend request. Sounds like perhaps you saw the Schwinn on CL? With the long Shimano brake. That thing worked really well. I'd give up a lot to be able to get more of them.
Lee, things are good. I hope to make it out this Sat., and may be driving (time constraints on the evening) from Bucktown?WP nbrhd. If anyone needs a ride (with or without their bike) please put him/her/them in touch with me.
All of the homes (except 1 or 2) S. Millard between Ogden and 16th have Romanesque pillars on their porches and almost all have extensive carved and/or molded decorations on their greystone fronts.

Hi, Lee! I didn't even see your wall post till now. Thanks for saying hey. Jerry has been limiting his cycling distances since he was hobbled by chronic tendinitis in his hamstring, and I've been racing this summer, so we haven't had time to get to any of the neighborhood tours. Ironically enough, once the weather gets crappy we'll probably start getting out more on organized rides.
