    hypothetically speaking, OF COURSE 8^\

    let's say, hypothetically speaking, of course, that i accidentally asked for the scoop on philly shops but meant to say shops around pittsburgh. hypothetically speaking, of course.


    how would your responses differ?


    (if you're not following me, i need info on great shops in and around PITTSBURGH to recommend to a friend who wants to get in to mtb'ing.)


    thanks folks...

    Ummm...gee...lemme think. How would it differ? Uh...yeah...I've got it! My reply never would have existed because I live near Philadelphia and have never been to Pittsburgh. As such, I have no clue which shops are worthwhile and, thus, would not have responded.

    Depends on what his needs from a shop are.

    Dirty Harry's, Gatto's, Scholls, and TRM Cycles are all my picks.

    I would not recommend the Wexford Gatto...I've not had very good experiences there. They do not seem to cater to people looking for trail info or small parts. I have only spoken to the folks at Scholl's on the phone, and the Highway 910/Route 19 store seemed more knowledgeable than the West View store.

    Haven't been to any of the others, but will eventually be visiting Pittsburgh Pro to see if it's worth my effort to have them replace the pivot bearings in my Stumpjumper.

    Have you ever been to Pittsburgh? I'd still recommend the Philly shops.
