Nancy L. Fagin replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Do not try this at home.  I remember seeing biking shirts that had printed on them mud splatter, grease etc. Just a fun visual effect - now if there was a way to drop a pattern of muddy bike tires on cars - maybe it would get the message across…"

"This one? https://youtu.be/MpBLgz0DjQ4 The world of spin bikes/spin classes is a little different. I think this is their market. Could you use this as a trainer? Sure, but why wouldn't just buy a cycleops or similar trainer? I like a good…"

Pelaton bike ad??

I keep seeing this ad for Peloton stationary bikes - adult woman pedaling like crazy, the whole body is shaking and wiggling as she bikes/corresponds with an on-line trainer and others.  But the whole posture, movement, etc. seems wrong.  If there was a top tube, hers would be way too short, the pedal length way to long.  Then, of course she gets off and makes breakfast for her kids....any feed back? See More

Nancy L. Fagin replied to Duppie's discussion any LBS carrying Schwalbe tubes?
"I think Adam Clark (Pedal for the People) carries Schwalbe - or he will order them for you.  He has a "ring" of tires cutouts to choose from."

"Many thanks!  I guess we need new age related categories.  I'm 62 and my husband is 75; we bike everyday.  The bike helmets cover the gray and the balding - so of course we ourselves look (and feel) much younger.…"

""older" + "40-ish"??  Yikes!  Just the other day I was asking someone what they thought a benchmark age was for "old."  I was thinking mid-70's and up, but I guess I'm already several steps…"

scooter in bike lane

10:40am at Milwaukee/Division/Ashland, seagreen scooter with older male (40ish) curly hair, no helmet harassing a bicyclist.  The scooter rider continued southbound on the Milwaukee Ave. bike lane.  Yelling back won't work - get his license plate and call it in!  I didn't get the plate number, but I did post the incident on the city's webpage.NLFSee More
