    Spring will be here before you know. Trust me. Why one bike in the shop? And, what bikes have you got?

    Chicago winters

    I hear you-- this has been a very long winter in Chicago. let's think warm thoughts and maybe it will be spring type weather sooner than later!! I personally can't wait to get the Litespeed out on the pave. The trainer is such a boring boring tool. Did I say the trainer is boring?

    Shop time

    I have a Trek 520 and a Schwinn Sierra Sport. I have some basic repair knowledge but I wanted to work on the Treks gearing so I took it to my favorite Bike shop ( Uptown bikes) where they have the knowledge and tools to do the job. Changing out the lower chain ring. I'm repacking bearings and just general maintenance on the Schwinn.
