The Chainlink

I'm relocating for work and my apartment will be available. It is the second floor of a northside home. The landlords, who live on the first floor, have been very friendly to my roommate, myself, and our bike collections. I would go so far as to say they have been some of the best landlords I've had. They're open-minded, just don't freebase in the bathroom, run a brothel, or start a growhouse... in the apartment. 

They take pride in their home and it shows. I'm hoping to help them find someone/some people who can appreciate living in a respectful building and return that. 

I figured I would offer it here before broadcasting to the internet at large so other bikers can take advantage.

The location is at Roscoe and Albany just off of Elston, north of Belmont. Great bike routes going downtown on Elston or East on Belmont and Califronia nearby for North/South access. Its surrounded by a gluttonous trifecta of Kuma's corner, Hot Doug's and Smoque. Groceries are a 3 minute ride away at the Jewels or a local Mexican market

Apartment has a lot of light.


The specifics:

 -two of the bedrooms have closets, 1 of them being a walk-in with shelves. 

 -third bedroom the largest, but no closet. we use as bike room.

Does the super-suction toilet have a safety to keep you from activating it accidentally?

No safety. Common sense required for approval. Be prepared. 

it does not have a dishwasher or hookups

I'm good with doing dishes by hand but you know sometimes roomies do hookup. Just sayin'

Also no fur sink or built-in electric dog polisher.
