"Very nice! It is great to read the advice to get a rack as opposed to using a back-pack or messenger bag. And my wife will be super happy to see your endorsement of the milk crate. (Which I've been trying to talk her out of since we met.)"

Tony Adams 4 mi replied to Sarah D.'s discussion Chainlinkers for Chuy - donate your time!
"What Chuy would do for cycling, transit and pedestrian safety is ambiguous at best. His opposition to the red light and speed cameras tells us that he places more value on pandering to drivers than he does to safety on our streets.  Rahm, on…"

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,
