As a newbie to Pittsburgh, and a newbie to biking, I’d like to be comfortable on the roads… but want to get started on the local trails first. I bought a very cheap/dysfunctional bike rack to get my bike home last year in Boston, but I’ve realized I need to invest in a secure one, with fool proof installation, something completely reliable over long distances. Any recommendations?
I have a Women’s Giant Transend, not unlike this one:
I dunno, I just went to Target and got the $40 bike rack about eight years ago, and it’s worked out just great. I wanted one of those nifty roof-mount jobs a year ago, but when I found out that they were hundreds of dollars, I went home and hugged my crappy (but super functional) Target rack. I’m cheap, I guess.
