Park Hyatt Chicago's two guest bikes. They're stored with the valet in the garage and lent upon request (and the signing of a release form). In the pannier: a mini lock, a raincoat, another helmet, and a frame pump (broken, I found, as the tires needed air). The front derailleur and GripShift were also broken, although someone had whittled a pretty ingenious wooden shim to keep the derailleur on the middle chainring. Perhaps a simpler drivetrain would've sufficed -- there's a reason why Trek Limes fill many rental fleets.

The quick releases had been replaced with bolts, which is a nice urban touch, but made adjusting the seat height impossible. I realized after leaving that the key didn't match the lock, so I ended up just riding up to Lincoln Park and back. I did appreciate the fenders on this snowy day.

Early 70's Crescent (of Sweden) road bike. Fixed gear conversion. 531 DB frame (infamous toe-clip overlap), Nervex Pro lugs (but not fork crown), Titan stem (27.0!), English steel track bar, TA 150mm (yes!) cranks, inexpensive but nice looking, decent, wheelset (with orange pinstriping), mini fenders (as trimmings).
I finally found a use for these cranks. With the toe-clip overlap, a slightly too-big frame and fixed riding pedal clearance and RPM's always a consideration, the 150's improve on all those points, but lack in power: good for flat land! Handles really well.
