Biking In Chicago

I'm a new Chicagoite. I just bought my first "real" bike. Translation: Not from Walmart
It's a 07 Fisher Wingra.
I have a horrible temper and tend to curse at cars that don't let me in to traffic.

Then you'll do fine here as long as your riding skills back up your talk.

Welcome! I do that, too, at certain times of the month.

Hello chengt, I don't think I would advise using that temper in Chicago too much !

Check out the Commuting forum for more stories...

I've been riding since I was very young and worked at a bike shop that my family owned for a few yrs starting when I was 7 putting bikes together.
I don't know anything about the new brands and quality of them but I can put together a bike no time at all
That's part of the reason that I joined here so that I can learn more about the names of good bikes and bike parts so that I don't waste time with my old trial and error method of finding bikes that I like.

And bang on taxi hoods -- they wish they were us, you know ... that's why they hate on us so bad.
