"Based on your response and the one below, I picked up some Keen sandals and a pair of Keen hiking shoes on eBay.  The quality is outstanding.  They should do me for a long time."

"I've ridden in Chrome shoes without cleats, and I do think they're stiffer than just typical Vans and Converse shoes.  They're also constructed in a way that makes them handle the wear of cycling a little better IMHO. …"

David P. replied to JMinHP's discussion Flat Pedal Shoes - Worth it?
"For me, no. I love BMX pedals (either plain, or with SPDs on one side) for everyday riding because the large platform makes it comfortable on virtually any shoe. I have two or three pair of SPDs for riding clipless, but for platform pedals I ride…"

"Thanks, Julie! Very cool little hack. My son used to go to JCYS until this year so I know the area really well (see also my not too cryptic username). If you ever see a black Yuba Mundo with blaze orange bags in the hood say hi!"

"Curious how you got around Lake Cook and the highway! I'm thinking the overpass at Deefield Road/Central Ave is too far north and out of the way. Care to share your secret?"

JMinHP replied to Scott Allen's discussion Awesome Salsa Marrakesh Deore Flat Bar Touring Bike For Sale -
"Agreed that this is an EXCELLENT price for this bike. It's almost as low as the cost of the frame alone. I'm super tempted but can't pull the trigger. Best of luck! One last question - how tall are you and how did the large fit?…"

JMinHP replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Randolph / Michigan Ave madness
"That looks most right turn lanes in the city with a bike lane to the left. I see the same thing at Illinois and Lake Shore - drivers like to use the bike lane as part of their right turn lane."

Let me know if you still have trouble finding the cap. As I mentioned on the page, it's under "accessories". Make sure you pick USPS as your courier if that's all you are ordering. Hope that helps!
