I was wondering if anyone here was from da'Burgh?
I've been riding for a few years, mostly offroad. I've been bitten by the Fixie bug and for the last couple of weeks I've been scouring the area thrift stores and garage sales for just the right bike. No luck yet, at least nothing that would fit me.
My question is this: I throw all of my business to two local LBS in my immediate vicinity (South Hills). When I talk to them about converting a bike to FG they look at me like I've got two heads. Both shops are mainly into selling new bikes and they don't seem real interested in helping me out with my project. Has anyone dealt with any Pittsburgh area shops that are agreeable and willing to help out on a FG project? It's sorta hit or miss and I don't really want to drive all over the place visiting different shops if someone already knew of someone that deals with FG on a regular basis.
Thanks in advance for any info.
