I’m still pretty new to Pittsburgh and my bike was stolen so I need to get a new one to get to work. The distance isn’t far, and I don’t bike recreationally so I just need a simple road bike though I do like the power of being able to shift gears…
Anyway I was wondering if there were any used bike shops I could check out to find a replacement? I bought my last bike from Positive Spin in Morgantown for only $80 and they were nice in helping me narrow down the ones that would actually fit me. I would rather visit a shop with many options than try every bike on Craigslist, but I don’t want to bother getting a new one for such a short ride. Does anyone know a good place I could check out?
I have a women’s bike I can lend you indefinitely. Comes with a rack and fenders. I got it from a friend who was about to trash it. (No @marko82, not the blue one you gave me.) Runs pretty well, though I haven’t a lot of experience with it.
I got it for my wife, but since she hardly ever rides, I can part with it for a while, but OTOH she might change her mind in a few months. It will certainly get you through the winter.
PM me if interested. I can meet you downtown or nearby.
Hampton Township is a bit far… Though I thank you for the suggestion, and @stuinmccandless I really appreciate the offer but I’m looking for something permanent. I wouldn’t want your wife to go without the option at least. Never know when a bike comes in handy! I really do appreciate your offer though, thank you very much.
