Chicago has some nice ones indeed. Here's another favourite of mine I took a year ago:Originally Posted by dubteka
Chicago has a mayor who is extremely interested in promoting and accommodating cyclists. That makes a big difference.
Interestingly enough there are racks exactly like that down by the physics building at my school. (Both of the styles).
I definitely dig 'em.
Here are some updated pictures of my bike, i am not sure if it is done yet or not, it needs either a paintjob or clearcoat for sure though.
pics doesn't show up.
they show up for me

I don't have the original Ciocc fork but the one I did have was pretty rusty so I had it sand blasted and re-chromed and it looks great. If you have the original fork, that might be a nice touch.
you can get them online at http://universalcyclecentre.co.uk/Decals.htm
Its this guy Dave. really nice. he sells them on ebay sometimes, but its just as cheap to get them through his site. or conatct him directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
on the fork note... wasn't sure if i could get a rusted fork re-chromed... so just bought a new one. maybe i'll still look into it. thanks.
Thanks! Yeah, you cannot get it re-chromed unless you get it sand-blasted/bead-blasted first. I had a chrome fork on another bike that was not too badly rusted and I took some furniture stripper to it and it took all the rust off. It looked new again, maybe this would work for yours----mind you, this was surface rust that wasn't super-bad.Originally Posted by dubteka

Guys this pic does it no justice. See it in person. Very Nice Bike.
i wanted that grandis so bad... it's good to see you're taking good care of it.
new-style campy track cranks are so beautiful. i've been on the verge of getting some sugino 75s for a long time now, but i think i might just have to keep saving up and get those record pista cranks instead.Originally Posted by FixednotBroken
dude that bike is hot! i wonder how many people here placed a bid on that frame. i did, so that makes at least two so far...
My new pride and joy. 44:12 on 20" wheels, rides like a pig, skids like a biatch:
with all the bike porn lately (165, absntr, et al.), i figured i would post mine. i was in the process of re-taping (white) my drops, but i have been having fun with the chrome bling! i also have some white keirin grips that i have been toying with using up top. (it is a wee bit grainy from re-sizing...if anyone knows how to re-size, while maintaining a smooth image, i welcome suggestions!).
with slight mods from its current state, it can also be seen at http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2004/g/stevenson.htm methinks the decals will be removed next and straps (possibly) added.
Very nice, bringing that out on Sunday?Originally Posted by FixednotBroken
awesome shots again! the hub polishers are the best.Originally Posted by fixedude
oh yeah. you missed her last weekend... i'm gettin' some keirin grips today (hopefully) so i can bring 'er to kissena. rides like a wet dream.Originally Posted by akky
Very nice. I remember that one from the FGG. I like the white with the grey and silver. Very clean. I defnitely recommend getting rid of the decals, looks real smooth (165 has it set up this way).Originally Posted by fixedude
What are you using to resize the image? I know that iPhoto doesn't do it nice. Photoshop will, Gimp, a proper photo editor should do the job.
after seeing your ganwell, i am thinking i may have to purchase one (or a nagasawa) before returning, since i am close to both kyoto/osaka (homes of ganwell/nagasawa, respectively). again, damn sexy bike!!Originally Posted by
