As the others have said in the positive and the negative reviews, Pgh Pro Bikes caters towards the high end purchaser; even so, the shopper best be well informed about the actual market price, the specific model years currently in production, and the stock components prior to entering the store. The 2007 bikes are now available; the 2006 leftovers on their floor should be discounted. Also, Bianchis and Cannondales come with pedals from the factory; amazingly, these pedals, even if only worth $40, are never found on the bikes that Pgh Pro will sell to you.
Unlike other shops, the people behind the counters are not the mechanics. They are salesman with questionable bike experience, who will do their best to push a sale. The new setup on Forbes Ave, has the mechanics hidden in the basement. The hourly rates are comparable to the other stores in Pittsburgh (Ghatto, Biketek), but do not expect to interact with and/or learn from the mechanics who perform the repairs. They are in the business to make money (understandable), and as such they would prefer that you remain dependent on them for $40/hour. Ask the guys at West Liberty Cycles for advice, and they will provide. Better yet, go to Kraynick’s and learn to become your own mechanic.
