Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

North Avenue and the Kennedy, Southbound!!

Did I mention to everyone that Tuesday night, comin' back from my buddy's place at Chicago and Ashland, some ******bag pulled across 4.5 lanes of traffic and into my lane, 30 yards west of the Southbound entrance ramp to the Kennedy on North avenue?

we are door to ...ummm...pedal, and he forces me to take a hard right at 20mph into the southbound entrance ramp. I kept up with him for a few hundred feet, until he rolls down his window and asks "hey, I used to ride a track bike. What are you doin' on the highway?"

**********
parts of this story have been exaggerated.....well, only the last two sentences...

whoa that's crazy. I tend to prefer a thumbs up & a wave vs. the heart attack & bowel evac. I once had a car full of girls almost run me down while they were trying to hit on me. Careful near those on/off ramps.

one of the worst place's to bike in Chicago between Ashland and Halsted on North Ave all the yuppie f##ks consumers on the cell in their little mobile insolent booths, but worth the fight just to get to Stanley's.If when only had something like Stanley's in Mpls I'd be much happier man.

So when did you lift your ride over your head and launch it at his windshield? When did you take that u-lock and belt him over the head? When did you grab his steering wheel and drive his s**t box into the side of the expressway?
