Went to ThickBikes and they took good care of
me us my bike. They put on a new crank after actually asking, What size is your crank? hah hah hah hah. As if.
Had to take it for a test ride. Drove over to Southside Riverfront Park, parked next to a car with the Best. License Plate. Ever.
As I was putting my panniers on my bike, the cyclist who owned the car arrived so I introduced myself and asked about the license plate. Turns out, the rider is Peggy, the founder of Triangle Bike Rentals and now the leader of a weekly retiree group ride CyclePath2000. I was glad to meet her, her business was way out in front in terms of recognizing Pittsburgh bike development.
Rode out to the south-east. Met FrankB on one of his two Rivendells and we rode together to the Riverton Bridge, where I turned around. Stopped at REI for minor geegaws. 24 miles on a real pretty day.
