"Three of my friends from Velo Club Roubaix were seriously injured by a horse trailer / cyclists accident in Barrington Hills several years back. Thankfully, all recovered. I know Rubani is on the board of same and think Elliott serves today on…"

"Very interesting read. Regarding Barrington Hills laws I believe they came about around 5 years ago when a vehicle pulling a horse trailer passed the cycling club Velo Club Roubaix (VCR) on either Otis, Penny or Sutton and misjudged the clearing…"

"Ben thank you for taking the time to assist a fellow cyclist on the ground. This is one posture that certainly and immediately connects any cyclist to the one place we actively avoid on a daily basis. I am currently in the fall session of…"

Duppie replied to Smart Bike Parts's discussion Dog Alert Logan Square?
"You are right. But acknowledging that a dog has a personality that can be out of your control is a slippery slope. Before you know it, you are like my neighbor. She has two chihuahuas that yip at all hours of the day. She claims that she has done…"

A.K.A Paul replied to Smart Bike Parts's discussion Dog Alert Logan Square?
"To answer your question, it wasn't your appearance with regards to the helmet, per se. It was the bike and the speed at which you were moving. Some dogs have a very strong drive that has them go after people on bikes, among other things. Its…"

Duppie replied to Smart Bike Parts's discussion Dog Alert Logan Square?
"Have to disagree here. The dog cannot be held responsible for it's personality. The owner is responsible for the dog's actions, period. Everything else is just excuses."

BruceBikes replied to Smart Bike Parts's discussion Dog Alert Logan Square?

Dog Alert Logan Square?

Greetings All,Very bizarre occurrence the other day - I was biking to Foodsmart on Armitage last week on a rather cold afternoon. In this type of weather, I wear a full face BMX helmet and Goggles to stay warm. A Pit Bull harnessed to someone walking him saw me and went instantly into attack mode. The force of his attack instantly put the owner onto the ground and the dog proceeded to drag him from the sidewalk onto the street in an attempt to get to me. The owner managed to get to his feet;…See More

Smart Bike Parts replied to cutifly's discussion Celebs on bikes
"Was very pumped to do this build for Henry Cavill, Man of Steel in 2011. Hard to imagine how you can cut someone a cool deal and sell them a steel track bike for around $3500. Jerry Chan put together this deal for us and told us you have to see the…"
