    Bike Shops around Pittsburgh

    Is there a bike shop that is recommended to service hydraulic disc brakes. I was thinking of going to Pro bikes in Monroeville. Anyone have experience with them? How is there service dept?

    Around the downtown area I would highly recommend Thick Bikes - 1408 Bingham St
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    I took my one bike to Pro Bikes in Monroeville and they seemed very reluctant to work on my hydraulic brakes. They said they just needed to be tightened, but a couple of rides later, the brakes had that spongey feel again. I agree with the above post. I would take it to Thick Bikes in the South Side. If you don't want to go to the city, I would try Dirty Harry's in Verona.

    Thick and DH are both good recommendations. If you are near monroeville, you may want to try cycle symphony in Adamsburg. One exit east on the turnpike.

    I took my bike toPro Bikes? Pittsburgh's Premier Bicycle Shop (Monroeville, PA). They were very good to me. Whether it was because I was a first time customer, or they treat there customers that way all the time is unknown to me. So I will keep going there till I find out differently.
