Salutations from Logan Square, Chicago
Figured I might as well... I live in Chicago, am a student, and don't have a car. My ambition not to ride public transit whatsoever has been broken by a recent knee strain/minor crash running. I play drums in a sludge metal band.
A 1985 Bianchi Classica tourer in very nice lilac-tinted silver powdercoat paint (scratched up since this is my daily ride), set up with a fixed gear, 48x17. I really like riding fixed, or I did until I tried running and overdid it like a fool.
and a touring bike which is in Kansas, the dark blue 1973 Fuji Finest, mostly with Campagnolo Nuevo Record parts, completely restored paint.
I'm looking for a new road bike right now.
I'm curious, how did your touring bike wind up in Kansas without you?
Welcome to Bike Forums. Hope your knee heals up quickly!
Do you have a photo of the Bianchi?

Knee feels good, unfortunately no pix of the Bianchi and no camera... a shame since its a beautiful color.
I'm from Kansas and can get more distance riding in there so the Fuji's safe at home.
I go to Columbia downtown for cultural studies.
