"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…"

"Bike Floss.  When will people learn that cables are worthless?  Might as well write up a nice little tag to hang on with the cable that says, "To: Bike Thief, From: Santa""

"Just an example of how NOT to lock up a bike. I bet the two cables werre easier to cut than the one padlock.  This morning, there's a bike in that spot with the same blue cable and a U-lock."

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. Originally located in the township of Cicero, it was voted out of the Township and became part of Chicago in 1899. For years, the rail lines served as a boon to…See More

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.

I figured that group was a good place for it...

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.
