Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"Hahaha... I do that too. It's called "getting in the last word", and I like to think it keeps a motorist from thinking he won the argument. (Am I being too hostile? ^_^ ) The space requirement was a little bit of an issue as my bike…"

"I'm afraid I've lost a lot of confidence that the police have any sympathy for cyclists since I saw six of them riding the wrong way on the Jackson Blvd bike lane a couple weeks ago. Steve"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"Mike (and others), Have you considered an air horn (EXAMPLE)? I have one of these; it's louder than sh!t and has come in very handy on several occasions. Good examples are cars starting to turn right, crossing my path, and merging into my lane…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I see this all the time. Even police cars do it. However, according to the police training videos, a car temporarily double-parked on a street with a bike lane is not supposed to be in the actual lane. What's more, a passenger opening the…"

"To the six UNIFORMED Chicago Police officers riding West in the bike lane on Jackson Blvd by the Chicago Police Education and Training Academy yesterday at about 5:35 PM: First, thanks for not tazing, beating or arresting me for saying "Wrong…"

"Well, that gives me hope! I'll keep looking, and maybe my stats are off. Steve"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I'm afraid my experience is more in line with Wuffie's. I'd estimate the prevalence of cyclists following (even *approximately* following) the rules and exhibiting courtesy for other road users to be 10% or less. I wish I could say…"

"If the driver gives me the finger, as they often do, I like to say "Is that your IQ or your sperm count?" (Has to be a male driver... usually is though) Steve"

"O.M.F.G. And where are the police when you need them? Steve"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"To the young bare-legged (brrrr...) woman on a Divvy riding North on Loomis and then East on Jackson: It was refreshing to see another cyclist stopping for signs and lights, and giving cars their right-of-way, as appropriate. I wish there were more…"

Steve Weeks replied to Ash L.'s discussion Any bike bans on metra this weekend because of the draft?
"I'm not familiar with the METRA Electric line, but I assume their bike policy is the same as the diesel lines. One possible solution is to take a folding bike: as long as it's in a bag, it's not a bike... it's…"

Steve Weeks commented on Brett Ratner's page Chainlink Tech Corner: Causes for Bearing Failure
"Bearings can also wear from being too loose; this permits the rotating element to overload a smaller number of balls than would normally contact the race. When the load is supported by fewer than the optimum number of balls, the excessive pressure…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I encountered a young woman riding west on the east-bound bike lane on Jackson. I said only "wrong way" but got no response. I guess that's better than an epithet, but at times like this I doubt some cyclists will ever think of…"

Steve Weeks replied to Thomas Bruzan's discussion Winter Bike to Work Day
"Every day is Bike-to-Work Day! Glad to see a few others at Daley Plaza. Too bad the cheesecake was gone by the time I got there. Notice the Channel 5 personality in fron tof the Kozy tent. Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
" Hahaha! Thanks for that, Tom. Luckily I had put my coffee down before I read that! I was looking over the pictures I took and saw Kye Martin holding a microphone... missed my chance for those 15 seconds. :-/ Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"I took off some layers, didn't use the balaclava, and still got to Union Station sweating like a pig. Nice temperature... I could get used to this weather! Steve"
