"150 N Michigan has a small bike room, which, I'm told fills to capacity (12 or 15 or so?) in "the season" but so far this year I've never seen more than six or seven bikes in it, and really could be there be more perfect riding…"

"I pinged CDOT again this week and got a response. It sounds a lot like the response from March of 2016, but perhaps this time it is true? sorry for the slow response - but I believe the lanes have faded - shld be restriped by a federally funded…"

"Thanks! I found a few more details on the technique(s) here:https://www.westernbikeworks.com/booting-a-tire-article Today I applied a big patch to the inside of the tire. I cut it from a large square of patching material that came with a goofy BELL…"

Tony Adams replied to Yasmeen's discussion Are Chicago Cyclists "Blindly" Loyal to Bike-Friendly Mayors?
"There was no conclusion to the question presented during the segment. It was curiously brief. It seems like they were just getting started with the discussion and then the 5.2 minute recording was over. Hopefully the next time around we won't…"

Mark A. Watkins replied to Tony Adams's discussion Spring Tip: Don't Ride Over an Umbrella Carcass
"Use a piece of an old tire you may have lying around to serve as a "boot".  It will prevent the inflated tube from bulging through the hole."

Tony Adams replied to Tony Adams's discussion Spring Tip: Don't Ride Over an Umbrella Carcass
"Yikes! Head first! amazing! I figured patches would be dicey given the sidewall hole, and I don't carry a tube, so I locked it up for the day, hopped on a DIVVY and rode to work. On my way home I bought a tube (when did tubes start costing…"

Tony Adams replied to Charlie Short 11.5's discussion 311 Code for Parking in the Bike Lane
"If 311 EVER failed to connect me to 911 every time I call with a bike lane related, or even non-bike lane related parking infraction, I would be more than happy to share and endorse this advice. But the simple fact is that in Chicago, 311 routinely…"

Tony Adams replied to Charlie Short 11.5's discussion 311 Code for Parking in the Bike Lane
"Bob is correct. In some jurisdictions 911 may be only for emergencies, but in Chicago anytime one wants to contact the police through 311 (the non-emergency number for contacting the City) one is connected to 911 by the 311 operators regardless of…"

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?
