"The magnets fill the hole where tools are to be inserted.  You need magnets to get them out.  I bought a set of 4x3mm and 5x3mm from Amazon.  They also come in ball bearing shape.  Prices are very reasonable considering the…"

J. W. 6.3mi replied to Lee Diamond's discussion Stolen Bike Registry - do this when your bike gets stolen
"Thefts will happen regardless of what any mayor does about it.  Proper locking and perhaps the use of more than one lock is a good start.  I often see people spending lots of money on bikes and skimping on the security.  I also see…"

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.

Great Ride and thanks for the after party at Janiks! ;-) Great stuff! ;-)

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.

Something about that guy annoys me.

Lee, you set the bar. Your preparedness is perfect and your tours worth paying for.

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. I've seen similar homes here and there in Lawndale and other parts of the South side, but I haven't noticed so many very similar homes in a two block stretch anywhere else on the south side.

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.
