    Shout Out to Chicago - Another Single Speed City

    I was in Chicago a couple of summers ago. I was simply amazed at the number of single speed bicycles that I witnessed in passing. However, when you really think about it, Chicago is a fairly flat city, just like Miami, New Orleans, and Phoenix.

    I was also surprised at the number of single speeds in San Francisco. I mean, for so many hellacious hills, you would think a city like that would forbid single speeds. However, San Francisco seems to be some kinda single speed magnet. So go figure!

    I was in Europe about 12 years ago. I witnessed a whole bunch of single speeds in both London and Amsterdam too. I think the craze must have hit Europe first, before North America.

    At any rate, I'd just like to give a huge shout out to Chicago. One of the greatest single speed cities in the world!

    I'm just trying to enjoy conversation with other cyclists who either observe something that I've noticed and we share a common observation or belief. OTOH, if they disagree, we can discuss the points of difference in both a civil and congenial manner that can also be equally as enjoyable and quite possibly, enlightening too.

    That's how I intend to both use and enjoy the forum. Now, if that's trolling, then I'm gulity. However, what I don't do, is to try to bring about dissension amongst fellow RBR members in a disrespectful manner.

    I always try to maintain a certain modicum of respect for everyone, and RBR members, in particular.

    Have A Good Day, Sir!
