"I concur. I had a Trek of the same year and tubing (and color) a few (ok perhaps 10) years ago and on that bike, the rear end suffered from a weird swaying when loaded when I stood up off the saddle. It was painful to sell it as it was a great bike…"

Tony Adams 4 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion Groups - so many old, out of date groups. What to do?
"Yeah. I wonder if the purpose of the groups could be replaced by functionality of the site redesign. I only use the Chainlink for the forums, and, thanks to the nightmare that is Ning, they are hands down the worst forums I've ever had the…"

Long Live the (temporarily dead) Streetsblog

The awesome Streetsblog Chicago has ceased production! Ouch!Steven and John have been doing a great service for riders, transit riders and pedestrians (and I suppose even the drivers of motor vehicles). I'm super bummed to see that it ran out of funding.http://chi.streetsblog.org/2015/01/08/so-long-for-now-but-hopefully-not-for-long/See More

Davo replied to Tony Adams 4 mi's discussion The Sombra: a Lampshade for your blindingly bright LED light
"I think that you could get the same effect using some diffusion gel that is used in theatrical lighting. or cutting up a milk jug. Also I doubt that most people who have bright lights even think about it. I wonder how people would react to strangers…"

T.C. O'Rourke replied to Tony Adams 4 mi's discussion The Sombra: a Lampshade for your blindingly bright LED light
"Personally, I use bicycle lights to be seen buy others and therefore I aim mine at driver eye level. The city is pretty well lit and potholes/debris on the road fairly visible.  I find my 2 Watt bicycle headlight isn't powerful enough to…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Tony Adams 4 mi's discussion The Sombra: a Lampshade for your blindingly bright LED light
"The problem with bike lights isn't that they're too bright, it's that they're poorly aimed. Too much of the light is directed up at nothing, or into the eyes of others. Car and motorcycle headlights concentrate the light and aim…"

Tony Adams 4 mi replied to Josh L.'s discussion News Report on CPD Bike Patrols in Winter.....
"Back when I road the Dearborn lane as part of my commute I would regularly see CPD on bikes ticketing or at least admonishing drivers of cars in the lane. It was a hugely encouraging sight to see."

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,
