Some cool bikes images:
An errant motorist jumped the curb and crashed first into the tree, then the bike rack, and finally the bike parked here. The LaSalle Blue Line station entrance is just steps away (in the background). Imagine the fate of a bicyclist who might have been locking their red Schwinn road bike to the bike rack only to find a 2-ton metal box hurtling in their direction.
How much did the collision cost, according to the photographed scene?
These are my guesstimates:
Tree removal and replacement: >,000
Bike rack removal and replacement: 0
Vintage Schwinn: 0
Return of monster bike

I finally finished converting monster bike (a drop bar’d mountain bike frame) to a cyclocross rig. I took this just after riding it in the weekend cyclocross race.
It’s a fun ride. I think it might be a touch small for me, but it held up pretty well in the race. The tires gripped the dirt pretty well and the gearing is perfect. I need to get a N stop gaurd and maybe replace the back wheel (it’s so heavy.)
