    Whoever knows that messenger in Chicago

    with the orange Litespeed, can you let him know it's a sweet ride?

    I saw him for the first time yesterday on Illinois Street, then he turned and headed for lower Michigan. I didn't get close enough that time to see what kind of bike he had, but it looked good from a block away. Then today, I saw him again- this time, he was flitting down Washington, headed west from LaSalle. As he ripped past me (I was headed up LaSalle and about half a block away this time), I saw that bike.

    It's beautiful.

    I haven't been close enough to see what's on the bike... yet. I'll catch him one day.

    Nah. No crush... not yet. That bike... it was a beautiful thang!

    Not all bikes look good even from a block away for me. But every now and then, there's always a beautiful bike that catches my eye. Not often, but infrequently.

    Oh, I use that line lots, 'Great bike, Does your girlfriend ride too?'

    Tire biter.

    Remember highschool? Buggin' you I never had the car.

    My new line is "Wow, you have beautiful legs, are you a cyclist?". (trying to find a girlfriend who rides.)

    Hey, what is with the 'dumb' lady cyclists who don't wear helmets 'cause it squashes the hair?- ......
    Stupidity is NOT a turn on.
    I see that WAY too much, fashion or vanity?, is gonna get those poor ladies hurt.
    Say 40% of female cyclists I see, don't wear helmets. Guys, 25%?????

    And I thought guys were supposed to be the stupid macho ones. Hmmmmm.

    Hmmmm... I didn't think it was a Look- I thought for sure it said Litespeed.
