    Hi from Pittsburgh

    Hi, am fairly new to riding (as an adult) but car issues are spurring me to make use of my bike for errands and eventually want to be able to commute to work (only 2-3 miles or so away). And hopefully a side-effect will be getting into a bit better shape. Am a chubby, uncoordinated chick so still working on being comfortable on a bike in public :-)

    I started out with a dual-suspension box store bike and just this week 'upgraded' to a used Giant Boulder that needs some tlc. I'm fairly ignorant bike-wise but am gleaning quite a bit from this forum and other resources.

    Welcome to BF. This place rocks. By they way, I was down at the parade today. Freaking awesome to see the Cup here in Pittsburgh.

    The parade was fantastic, tho I mostly got to see just the tops of people's heads.. :-)

    Thanks for the welcome - am enjoying going through the topics to find info especially with trying to fix up my bike as it seems to need a bit more work than I thought.

    I'm not a salesman or associated with Pro Bikes in Monroeville but they do sell and service Giants. Here are their locations. http://www.probikesllc.com/locations.html . They have some real nice people at the Monroeville shop.

    Thank you Couch - will have to keep them in mind tho not able to make it out to Monroeville (or the other locations) for a while. I think I will be taking my bike somewhere for a pro to look at tho as I think the bike needs a bit more work than I'm capable of at the moment. Changed the rear inner tube tonight so the bike should be fine for running to the store to break in the new panniers.
