Fuegofan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Most Embarrassing Moment On A Bike
"This is why for years I wouldn't ride to work, which is in the Loop.  Being clipped in was too terrifying and too dangerous.  I eventually saved up for a commuter bike--one with a rack and normal pedals.  "

Fuegofan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Most Embarrassing Moment On A Bike
"That's almost identical to mine, except that I wasn't with a club.  I hit the brakes and then realized I was still clipped in.  I unclipped my right foot and did my best impression of Wile E. Coyote's feet going really fast…"

Fuegofan replied to Alex Z's discussion Glasses vs. contacts while biking?
"I prefer to wear contacts over glasses simply as a safety thing--if I'm going to bite it face first, my glasses aren't built for that and it creates a bit of a danger.  Likelihood?  Minuscule.  I also prefer contacts because…"

Fuegofan replied to Yasmeen's discussion What Are Your Favorite Chicago-Area Bike Lanes, Paths & Routes?
"From the Green Line east to the lake it's fine or very good.  I can't comment about further west."

Fuegofan replied to Heather S's discussion Best bike friendly buildings in the Loop?
"30 North LaSalle has a bike room.  It's pretty bare bones, but it's free.  There is also a gym with showers, though I've never seen it.  The gym has a monthly fee."

Fuegofan replied to h' Zerocats's discussion How many other cyclists did you see on your commute this morning?
"Yesterday morning I only saw 1.  In late October-early November it was at about 19.  January 3 I saw 7.  Yesterday morning was a bit cold, but clear.  Saw about four riding through the rain on the way home.  "

"Thanks for the info!  I knew it had to be something unusual, and more than just Bike Week."

Fuegofan replied to Louis Rosenthal's discussion Lake Front Trail Armed Robbery
"Thanks for the post.  Glad your friend is o.k.  In 2004ish a guy pushed me into the dirt/grass as I was passing and tried to steal my bike from between my legs about 30 yards north of this same spot at about 6:30 p.m. in the summer.…"

Fuegofan replied to h' Zerocats's discussion How many other cyclists did you see on your commute this morning?
"Last Friday (June 17) I counted 450 from 55th Street to the Museum Campus on the LFT.  I have no idea why there were so many.  About 1/6 had numbers.  Most looked like commuters.  I know it was the end of Bike Week, but imagine…"

Fuegofan replied to Yasmeen's discussion California approved E-Bikes. Will more states follow?
"I'm not sure that the issue is so much pro-ebike vs anti-ebike, but rather, do ebikes belong on bike paths.  Given how fast some people ride on the LFT, I know that they're going 20 mph on a standard bike, I must say that ebikes that…"

Fuegofan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"Lovely day for a ride.  We got out to the aquarium.  A bit damp, but nice and quiet and the trail almost all to ourselves.  Little guy fell asleep in his WeeHoo for the first time ever (usually he's so excited to be in it he…"

Fuegofan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I finally got my gear changing cable replaced.  I feel like I have a Jaguar for a bike--I need two of these bikes:  one to keep in the shop and the other to ride.  It's my own fault for pinching the cable when I changed the…"

Fuegofan commented on Reuben Hussmann's event Chicago Fire - Section 8 Bike Brigade October 5th Ride
"Can't because I'm committed to tailgating and I'm making a paella, but if there is a way tat you can let me know further in advance for next year, that would be great.  I admit to woosing out two years ago."

Fuegofan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"Easy to get on the bike and ride today.  Hard to get off the bike and come into work. Glad the Chicago Classic Coach bus #663 who cut me off in traffic and took the bike lane for no good reason on Madison did not actually hit me."

Fuegofan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I rode.  First time for me to just say "F- it, I don't care if it's raining.  I don't care if I have a court appearance.  I'm riding today."  Ever since I got my new wheels in November 2012 (yes, for…"
