Pittsburgh-ish anyway. More like the burbs north of Pittsburgh.

I've been riding a Jones Plus for about a year now, built up for off-road touring with a Gates/Rohloff combo. I love my bike, but decided recently that I'd also like a touring folder, so I picked up a Tern Verge Tour. The folding forum is really what brought me here, there's not a whole lot of folding bike forums out there (exactly about zero of them, that are active anyway).

Love to ride, but my passion is actually for touring and bikepacking. I love to just go out and get lost. Bikes are really the means, I guess, not the end. That said, I can't think of a better way to get out and see the country. I guess whtat I like best about bike touring is that all the experiences are earned, a good balance of hard work and rewards.

Welcome. Since you are near Pittsburgh, you ride hills. I grew up south of there just across the WV border. Now I'm in southern Delaware where everything is pancake flat.
