"Way cool. We should go even further and do what New York City requires for bicycle parking. This is not rocket science and doesn't infringe upon anyone's second amendment rights either. "

"A 4 (to 6) lane 45 mph road is the worst part of my commute also. It is called Archer Avenue. The speed limit is actually 25 or 30, but it is not at all uncommon for drivers to exceed 50 mph, even during rush hour. The avenue needs a _serious_ road…"

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,
Ethan
