What brings you to The Chainlink?
To learn more about bikes, biking in Chicago year round, and connect with the cycling community.
About me:
I've been in Chicago for 3 years and work in Community Health. I have a deep interest in the built environment and population health. I have been introduce to cycling in Chicago through a friend but desire to know more about quality bikes and parts. I have a desire to one day build up my own bike through the knowledge I gain from experience integrating into the cycling community. I am making moves to sell my car and commute via bike only.
My first bike:
I received my first "professional" or "high quality" bike last year for my birthday. It is a KHS Flite 900 Team Issue racing bike. I recently started using SPD clip in pedals which I am very happy with. I am unsure if my KHS is equipped for winter riding which is one thing I want to start prepping for.
