"The United Center section of Damen can be a very crappy few blocks though as Damen turns into a four lane street with no shoulder or parking lane. But in the context of your entire trip, this is a pretty small problem.  As for your originally…"

Tony Adams replied to JeffB's discussion JUMP bikes in Chicago?
"Once in a while I get an urge to either complain about it and hopefully get it removed, or just remove it myself. Then I have this counter-thought that perhaps it reduces motor vehicle traffic around our "secret" Plymouth route and I talk…"

Tony Adams replied to Yasmeen's discussion Chicago's Bike Friendly Neighborhoods
"I do sometimes get over to Halsted, (avoiding as much of 35th as possible as there are four lane sections that get gruesome to share with cars) but that adds like 15 or 20 minutes to a downtown trip. For commuting, that just takes too long - for…"

"EXACTLY! McKinley Park, like most or all 'hoods, is perfectly fine to putter around in, but try to get from there to the loop or back? It requires either going miles out of ones way to take the lakefront, or enduring the treacherous urban…"

"Your kidding right? Dearborn Park is a public park, just as 9th Street is an open public city street despite what the signage at 9th and State falsely claims."

Barry Niel Stuart replied to Tony Adams's discussion Rain Gear: Recommend a Shell?
"My own shell is an inexpensive Frogg Togs rain shell which came as part of a rain suit. The only gripe I have with it is that's it's rather easy to rip it"

"Looks like showespass breaks it down - https://www.showerspass.com/pages/how-choose-best-waterproof-cycling-jacket Anyway, point is you get a lot of value (comfortable temp range) going for the fancier fabrics. Definitely spend some money (up…"

"For the old one, hit it with some spray. http://amzn.to/2yrOWEs  Not sure what fabric you've got, but you usually just need to spray on and toss in the dryer. There's also seam tape out there. You can use it as 'disposable'…"

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?
