Hello from PA!

Hello all,

My name is Rodger. My girlfriend and I just bought a couple of new bikes and we're waiting on delivery. I bought the Trek Shift 2 and she went for the 5 speed Sun Trike. The guy at the LBS was pretty good about letting her test several different bikes but she was pretty well set on getting the trike. I live about 5 miles from the Allegheny Passage near Connellsville. The plan is to ride the trail and take them camping to use around the campground. I'm retired but she's not quite there yet so we'll have some time to work back in to cycling.

I'm looking forward to learning from you all. I did a lot of pre-purchase research here before I joined. I also found a ton of stuff that "I just have to have!" I'm counting on you to save me from myself.

Rodger

It's good to see that you and her have a passion to share. Is she a member here too?
