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…"

"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 "

" 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 "

"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"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"Haven't missed a day so far this winter! Just installed a trigger-shift on my folder to replace the twist-grip, which was hard to locate gears with. More snow in the forecast, but spring is just around the corner now! Hope to see people at…"

"That nitwit is lucky you didn't just plow into him/her. How is it possible the pinhead "didn't see" you? Easy: he/she didn't LQQK! Good thing you weren't a car. Steve You:  said sorry, said (incredibly) "I…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"To the driver of the enormous black SUV that turned left in front of me, crossing my bike lane at about 5:45 this evening causing me to also turn left, squeezing between you and the south-bound traffic on Peoria and pounding my fist on your vast…"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"I used to switch over to studs on the long Thanksgiving weekend. It has worked out most of the time over the years. Now I have an old bike that I equip with studded tires so I can adapt to the weather to some extent. I still think the end of…"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"I got 2 new ones, as the ones I used for the last two years were pretty worn out. I have a "beater" bike that I put the studs on, so I can switch between studs and no studs until the winter really gets going. Steve "

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I was in Boston last Friday waiting for a bus on a crowded sidewalk. The street was pretty crowded as well. Along came a hipster type on a fixie (on the sidewalk) calling out "Bikers' rights! Bikers' Rights!" as he drove right…"

"Heh... I commented on a squad car parked in the bike lane on Jackson right in front of the Chicago Police Education and Training Academy. The officer responded in a not very friendly way. I was about to be late for my train, so kept riding.…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"Regarding cars (even police cars!) parked in bike lanes: Here is the part of the Municipal Code of Chicago that pertains to this: 9-40-060 – Drivers must not park, stand or drive a vehicle in any bike lane (MCC) I think there's a fine…"
