I have a commuter bike and I'd like to upgrade the crankset and derailer to something more "interesting". I see these Campys up for sale on FB and think they look sufficiently well-made. So, am open…Continue

Wisconsin Weekend Getaway at Jane Addams Trailhead

October 28, 2017 at 9am to October 29, 2017 at 4pm
The village of New Glarus is a popular tourist destination best known for its Swiss heritage, old world architecture, ethnic dining, small independently owned craft brewery, and outdoor festivals. Swiss-style chalets and flower boxes filled with red geraniums grace the streets of the village and Swiss flags fly next to the American flag at many businesses and homes.*** Trip will start and finish at the Jane Addams Trailhead located in town of Freeport, IL., just two hours drive from downtown…See More

"Okay, so we rode the trail today - from Wes Block to the Wisconsin State Line (State Line road/Badger Trail.) Wasn't horrible but certainly wasn't ready for prime time. Stayed toward the sides so as not to create ruts. Generally pretty wet…"

"Doubt it.  Dirt and gravel on the Chitown north side aren’t even ready.  Give it a week,  I think ... this is a significant but highly plausible guess about trail conditions near the Wisconsin border .  If you like mud and…"

WTB: Crankset w/chainrings, derailer and shifters...

I have a commuter bike and I'd like to upgrade the crankset and derailer to something more "interesting". I see these Campys up for sale on FB and think they look sufficiently well-made. So, am open to that or Colnago or ? I am going to need to replace the shifters and rear derailer too. While I am at it, I may as well start looking for some wheels too. 700c. Shoot me a message here or text me if you prefer at three 12, six one nine, 7 one three nine. Thanks.See More

"How about reverse-routing this...start in Illinois and heading north. Do a round trip? I am staring to plan a ride myself. I'd like to drive west to pick up Jane Addams, head north to Badger trail and then ?"

"Thanks - I rode it up from Forest Glen to north of Dempster (?) and back. No water. Nice ride. I wonder if I can take this to Milwaukee. I am not a fan of the stop and go though. Anyway, thanks for the feedback. "
