    Atlanta Bike Shop

    Can anyone recommend a bike shop in the Atlanta area? I am driving through there on the way home and want to stop by and take a look at inventory.

    You may want to be more specific as to your route or where you will be, the Atlanta metro area is thousands of square miles, bigger than a lot of of those dinky northeastern states.

    What kind of bikes do you want to look at? Not all shops stock all types...

    The ones I know of aren't too near that route. Just google "bike shops atlanta". I see there's one in Vinings, which will be very close to your route + Vinings is a fairly high end place so there should be some eye candy. As a general rule and depending on what you're looking for, further north in the metro area the terrain shades toward mountainous and the bike offerings become heavy mountain bike oriented. Closer to town the offerings are more road. Btw: You'll take I285 west around the city, Vinings is off 285.

    Off topic but just noticed this quote in wahoonc's signature line in the post above:

    Uhhh, guess which one you have under your butt at 550 mph, in a commercial aircraft--- Steel aircraft aren't too common, as in none, for the reason that it's too freaking heavy for the strength level in a structure where mass in very important. The properties of Al are pretty well understood.

    Yup and they have a limited life span too. FWIW the old airplanes from the 30's had steel frames...

    Thanks for the input folks. I decided not to head through Atlanta today after all. I will head up there some other time to check out the bikes.

    None are near I-75 but I'd have to recommend Roswell Bicycles, Free-Flite Bicycles (2 locations), and Cycleworks (4 locations).
