Hello from Pittsburgh , PA

Hi my name is Rosanna. I was a recreational bike rider about 15 years ago. I don't know why I quit riding but tomorrow a repair guy is looking at my bike. It needs a bit of TLC. I can't wait to get back to riding. I'm also wondering if anyone knows of an affordable rack. I have a Chevy Malibu. I did look at the Thule but it has to be removed when not in use.I guess I could do that.(but I'd rather not) A hitch is just too expensive for me.
Help me if you can. Thanks

Hello Rosanna, can you not get your bike into the trunk of the Malibu? Generally a single bike is easy to transport by taking off the front wheel...

What kind of bike have you got?

Welcome to BF!

Welcome Rosanna. God luck with the reacquaintance with your bike. I don't know much about racks so I can't help much with that. I'm sure there are some people on here that will know a lot.

Are you a sports fan? The Penguins are the hockey team I pull for, although I don't get to see them on the tube very often. (I have a soft spot for the Pirates, too). I'm new here, but they've made me feel welcome.
