Interior of the frame has been treated with Frame Saver, and the frame is otherwise in excellent condition with only a few scuffs and scrapes as can be expected from a commuter bike. Loads of braze-ons for racks, fenders, pump peg, etc. I'm including a Ritchey headset and Kalloy Uno two bolt seat post along with a pair…See More

"I saw a digital sign board at Dearborn & Randolph this a.m. that said "Dearborn closed 6/24 - 6/30."  Guess that answers the question."

"I'd recommend Clark too.  Its my normal route when I'm not taking the LFP.  Even after the bike lane ends, its wide enough for a decent ride.  River North can get tight, but take the lane when you need to. As far as getting…"
