My fault.  I went to a concert Tuesday night, locked it with a cable lock, and was on duty for work last night.  Tonight, the cable lock was cut when I returned.  The bike is well maintained, and has…Continue

"It was surprisingly clear from Mannheim east this evening. There is ice, but you can almost always find a clean line. I rode in the dark on studded tires, but with due care and caution, and non slick tires, it is rideable."

"Bellwood usually plows, but Maywood is spotty at best, as well as the portion in Forest Park between the train station parking lot west to the river. I haven't been on it in a few days, but based on my experience, 1st to 17th will not be clear.…"

"Thanks, OLB. The most distinctive thing about it is that it still has the Hillside Cyclery sticker on it, and one year old wheels, both with Velo Orange hubs. The back is quick release."

Stolen Blue Suburban- Ridgeland Green Line Stop- Oak Park

My fault.  I went to a concert Tuesday night, locked it with a cable lock, and was on duty for work last night.  Tonight, the cable lock was cut when I returned.  The bike is well maintained, and has one year old wheels with CR-18 rims and Velo Orange hubs.  The seat tube has the original dealer sticker from Hillside Cyclery.  I've submitted to the CSBR, and have an Oak Park police report. Just keep an eye out.…See More
