Tony Adams replied to dav's discussion 4 Flats in 4 Months. Facebook group advice is useless. I want your advice.
"I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure the advantages of Presta valves are mostly imaginary for any use except very narrow rims. It does not matter if the riding environment is urban or not."

"This data is hugely biased to the point where it should be more or less disregarded. The people who use Strava are a subset of riders who are fitness oriented or at least fitness conscious and who bother to install and use the app(s) on a mobile…"

Tony Adams replied to David Barish's discussion When will the Spring/Summer Bike to work Rally take place?
"I don't have an answer, but I want to thank you David for mentioning the Winter Bike to Work rally which is happening THIS WEEK and lament that ActiveTrans could not be bothered to send me an email about it. "

Tony Adams replied to Bill Seliger's discussion Commute route advice - Northside to 2801 S Western
"The United Center section of Damen can be a very crappy few blocks though as Damen turns into a four lane street with no shoulder or parking lane. But in the context of your entire trip, this is a pretty small problem.  As for your originally…"

Tony Adams replied to JeffB's discussion JUMP bikes in Chicago?
"Once in a while I get an urge to either complain about it and hopefully get it removed, or just remove it myself. Then I have this counter-thought that perhaps it reduces motor vehicle traffic around our "secret" Plymouth route and I talk…"

Tony Adams replied to Yasmeen's discussion Chicago's Bike Friendly Neighborhoods
"I do sometimes get over to Halsted, (avoiding as much of 35th as possible as there are four lane sections that get gruesome to share with cars) but that adds like 15 or 20 minutes to a downtown trip. For commuting, that just takes too long - for…"

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Hey Tony, what's the best way for me to get in touch to set up a coffee/beer get together?

Thanks,
