Hello from Pittsburgh...

This is all new to me at 59. The last bike I had was a Huffy Stiletto Drag Bike with high handle bars, banana seat and five speed shifter, lol....

I just bought a Marin Muirwoods off a friend who builds and sells bikes.. I ride the same trails along the Allegheny river that I did decades ago but there all in real nice now with no trains, broken beer bottles or bums bothering you..

I'm working on getting this bike fitted to me..

Thanks!!
