Has anyone ever done this? My hotel checkout time tomorrow is 11AM but my train leaves at 6.
They said "\Storage in parcel check is available for $10 per bag." but I have no idea where or what that is.
It would be fucking sweet if I could drop off my bags and just explore downtown Chicago for the rest of the day.

honestly i'm fine with them being put on. if youre too retarded to take it off you're probably too retarded to not send your derailleur into the spokes
even if limits are set, some unga bunga will inevitably bend the hanger enough to where the once properly set limit will still send it into the spokes.

32-40 ish mm 650Bs will fit on a 26er without altering the geometry, the diameters are similar but you may need to check brake adjustment, should be pretty easy with v-brakes but I wouldn't know about cantis (for road pull comatibility)

on smooth surfaces there is not much practical difference between 1.5 and 2.1 inch tires
where 2 inch tires really starts to pay off is in course gravel bigger than Size #57 gravel and in the wet
and there is a little bit of flotation on sand but not really enough for deep sand like a fat bike

26 is kind of bad for a smooth ride as the chain stays and spokes are shorter
and many of the later 1990s MTB were overbuilt in their tube dimensions

that said 26 24 and 20 inch wheels are much better for bearing weight and lateral load
for any given hub width the wider angle of the spokes provides more strength
very important for tandems and cargo bikes

and lastly if your climbing hills the smaller wheels can help with lower gear ratios
27 and 28 inch wheels are a bit more suited to higher speed and smoother riding so each has their place

>I'll have you know I've been to numerous gravel rides
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Bike Rides, and I've been involved in numerous secret gravel rides, and I have over 300 confirmed steep hills. I am trained in gorilla gravel and I'm the top descender in the entire US Strava segments. You are nothing to me but just another Fred. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of roadies across the USA and your bike is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can pass you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just on my 35mm tires. Not only am I extensively trained in going downhill on loose gravel, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the 32 - 37mm tires and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.
