    from Tacoma, WA

    Looking to try/buy some bikes at the Seattle Bike Expo this weekend. I am 54, female, pretty fit, but w/some neck and wrist problems (hills have always been hard for me too); so reading the thread on Townies was helpful. Any info/advice for a new bike would be great. Have even considered electric assists, but I guess I am not that wimpy yet. Have been an occasional rider for several yrs. on bike paths in the area and our many RV trips.

    Hi Suzanne! Have you ever had a bike fit? I'm 5 feet 2 inches and rode for years with bikes that
    weren't the proper size, and always had problems, neck, hand, knee pain. My first splurge on a
    properly fitted bike, I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Yes, some make fun of what they
    see as a "little bike" but what do I care? I'm 48 with osteoarthritis in both knees, live in Seattle and do
    hills. Sorry I won't see you at the Bike Expo, I'm working this weekend. (ugh) Marge
