"What do you mean, no parking?  The parking is right there, just not along the curb."

"I agree completely. I take that turn every day and I'm never certain I'm doing it correctly. The bike lane should have been between the northbound lane and the right turn lane in my opinion."

"Agreed.  Also in the same boat.  Would be great if it were 45 min or 1 hour."

Maurice replied to chixieonfixie's discussion George Lucas museum approved just off the LFP
"I would've preferred a children's museum. It would be no less "for everyone" than the kids' park and skating ribbon and, in any event, would not have taken up the entire space."

Thanks for your comment! I know there are dutch bike shops in Chicago. We started with the export of a classic dutch bike brand named Union and I'm trying to see what's going on in several bike cities! We believe Copenhagen Cyclery could be a great partner for us.

I'm selling it because I have too many bikes. I built it up just to build a great urban track bike. I'll send you a photo as soon as I get my butt moving today.

OK, I saw a ride that goes on Saturday but yeah, something tells me that on Saturday we may be indoors. If you train during the week, maybe we could work something out. I'm a bit intimidated by the whole team talk. But I could pick up my game.

Yes, my primary bike is an early 80's Schwinn Continental fixie conversion. I kind of love it, but it is a bit heavy. I'm casually looking around for something a bit lighter - but not so fancy as to be expensive - in other words another $50 or $100 old bike to convert. I also have an early 80's Trek 500 road bike which I use for the occasional tour or when the Schwinn is on the operating table or whatever.

re: my blurry icon, it says Waystn Cycles. But Hasty or Waysted or whatever would be funnier! The shop sticker if from the store the bike came from I guess. The sticker is long gone or I'd take a better shot of it. Here is a bit more info about the shop.
