"You're not being a hardnosed asshole.  You're being an idiot.  Suppose they did what you wanted in this case and parked further in the street instead of the bike lane. They're working on a manhole or something  that…"

"Umm, that law about almost certainly has exceptions about construction or maintenance.   Two of those trucks are literally backed up to the spot they're working on with the doors open.  Certainly looks like they they're…"

"WTF?  There's literally work being done at that corner.  Where do you want the workers to park their trucks?  And it's not even a bike lane, it's a lane with sharrows! Do you also submit reports when the bike lane gets…"

S replied to Gage B.'s discussion Incredibly unsafe Left Turn Green Light @ Chicago & Wells
"It's a safety/traffic flow issue.  The turn after red, helps to clear out the cars hanging out in the intersection waiting to make a left turn.  That way, there's less chance that the cross traffic gets a green while vehicles…"

S replied to Charles_T_Duck's discussion SUVs Kill
"It's not carmakers emphasizing SUVs or trucks as much as consumers refusing to buy anything but SUVs, trucks, and CUVs.  Sedan sales have been steadily dropping to the point where Ford and possibly other carmakers have plans to halt the…"

"Change that from most drivers to most people violate the rules of the roads and you'll be more accurate.  Cyclists routine run stop signs/reds, ride the wrong way down streets, use sidewalks, etc.  Pedestrians jaywalk all the time,…"

Hey S, are you around anytime today? I'm catching a ride home with Timmy on Sunday but he's not available for me to drop off my car rack. Any chance you can lug it up and I can stick it on his car at the site?

I actually have a friend who wants a ride, but who doesn't drive.

It looks like I'll be working from 11 to noon and could probably leave at 12:30. I can always drive myself. However, I'd kind of like to ride up...even if it's on my own. Do you think you could give him a ride? We're up in Lincoln Square.

Hey there,

the group messaging system is down, so im reaching out to everyone individually. im just following up to see if you are still going on the camping trip to Illinois Beach State Park. we are actively securing sites and forming groups to make sure everyone has a spot.

if you are still coming, please hit me up or refer to the google docs spreadsheet ( and make sure you have a site reserved or part of a group.

if you are not coming, please update your RSVP so we know accurate numbers of people going.

ahh--maybe then i won't need to swap out my front derailleur when swapping..?
you're right they're not that expensive if need be.
At 12:50pm on June 7, 2009, Rx Star said…
how about the front derailleur? i think i'm set with everything else.
At 10:54am on June 7, 2009, Rx Star said…
sorry i did not see you had commented before.
I'm checking on whether the person i'm swapping with has shimano 105 rear derailleur--if not, i'm going with yours-thanks!
question though--do you think i'll need to swtich out the front derailleur as well?
i'll check on this and let you know. thanks so much again!
