Tony Adams 0 mi replied to Robert Underwood's discussion Slopey top tubes
"Note that this picture conceals how goofy the jacked up bars look by tossing a scarf or something over it. That said, I think non-horizontal top tubes (except on mixtes) are an abomination. While the many bumps and scars on the top of my head might…"

"Thanks. It has been a lot of fun adding red parts over the last couple of years. Like the seat-post for example - i had no intention of putting a red one on that bike, but when the original failed and had to be replaced... turns out there was at…"

Tony Adams 0 mi replied to Robert Underwood's discussion TELL US ABOUT YOUR BICYCLE!!!
"My daily rider is a two speed town bike based on an '87 (or so) Schwinn Le Tour frame. My first iteration of it was as a three speed. Then it was a fixie for a while and when I horked the threads on the fixed side it sadly became a single…"

"That'd actually make protected lanes workable. No more trying to cut into traffic a block early to make left turns and right hooks wouldn't be much of a concern."

Tony Adams 0 mi replied to Joe Guzzardo's discussion 3 Things
"Joe, I'm afraid that is going to take someone with more advance math skills to keep this thread on course. That said, I sort of share your list, except I'd replace the Chinese with Thai and then reverse the order.  "

Julia 3.5/7.5 mi replied to Tony Adams 0 mi's discussion Protected Intersections
"I really like this. I'm a lot more comfortable in dense areas when I can ride in a protected lane. I think more separation (concrete planters) and this intersection design would really help elevate protected lanes from their somewhat…"

"A bike are not "just an object". They are also symbols that we can break free from the destructiveness of car-culture. It is an attack on our practice of sustainability and affront against hope. Bike theft is wrong on a lot of levels, the…"

"Yes! definitely!  I've very proud of my otherwise very south side block. No-one ever does dibs here even though a lot of us shovel out spaces on the street. "

Tony Adams 0 mi replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2014- who's still riding?
"Yeah exactly. I've never used studded tires, rode through every winter in Chicago since like 1990 and have only fallen due to slippery conditions twice - both times were harmless falls onto nice deep snow - not a big deal.  "

Tony Adams 0 mi replied to Active Transportation Alliance's discussion What's your 2014 agenda for the Chicago Department of Transportation?
"+1 It would be great to know if the appalling situation in the bike lanes (and the rush hour parking lanes which serve as defacto bike lanes) is the result of a new policy or if it was just a result of a botched plowing jobs not being able to keep…"

"I get that the list is mostly not specific to any geographic area. But we should focus on getting the spokes  fully in place before we move on to improving the existing network of bike infrastructure.  There is a huge gap in the network…"

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Hey Tony, what's the best way for me to get in touch to set up a coffee/beer get together?

Thanks,
