    Hey Ron did Rob tell you I put Dp on the 06 Quest in the end of my search for a road bike the quest seemed to ride the smoothest and has some good components to me and the guys at your shop are cool and knowledgeable so I took the plunge.

    Awesome!! I know you'll enjoy it.

    Wednesday (12/12) was my last day at work until January. Mike has the Georgia Tech students scheduled to work thru the holidays while they're out of school. I guess I'll go back to work on Jan 8(??).

    If you bring the bike back for the post break-in check over on a Tuesday or Wednesday I'll finally get the chance to meet you.

    I am new to atlanta, new to road bicycling, and new to this board. I live in cobb county and just bought an entry level Felt. It should get here by the end of the week and I'd love to meet some riding buddies in town! I used to race mountain bikes when I lived in Maine, then when I moved to Florida I got into BMX freestyle. Rode an S&M Dirtbike but sadly it's seen better days and I left it at my parent's when I moved up to Georgia. Nice to meet you all!

    Hi andyscott and welcome. Sorry for the late reply.
    Check the SBL ride calendar to find rides in Cobb County. You may see some of us at a ride.

    What part of Cobb? My fiancee lives in south Cobb (the Mableton area) so I know that area pretty well.

    The best area for riding in the Atlanta area is Decatur/Tucker and I hope to be back there soon.

    Hi Tommy,

    Waddaya mean soon? What happened to the 8 year plan?
    Just kidding. We'll all be glad to see you again.

    Have you kept up with all the changes at ABC?
    If not, check out their new website - www.atlantabike.org

    I have not seen the website, but will take a look. I have been in contact with Rebecca on a few issues, though. It seems that she has been a real shot in the arm to the organization.

    Soon is a relative term. I really have no idea when I will be back there. As it looks right now, the project will continue through at least August. If that is the case, I plan to make an appearance in April.

    andyscott, check out Atlanta Cycling in Vinings. It is literally just down the road from you. There are group rides all year round out of the shop and a really cool bunch of guys. Also, go to www.sadlebred.com for a list of the group rides each day. See you out there.

    No locals responded so I moved the free shoes (Shimano M120G) to the Pay It Forward thread.

    They may fit. Here's Shimano's sizing chart.



    I'll hold them for you just in case they fit.

    I'll bring the shoes to the shop if you can let me know (a day or two before) when you'll be coming by to pick up the Quest.

    Some of the best people are at the Freight Room ride. There is a nice variety of riders there, so I would suggest that as a start. You can learn about all the other rides there, as well. Plus, it is right in your neighborhood. Check out the ride calendar at www.bikesbl.org for more information.

    I hope to see you there when I make it back to the States.

    Also the Melton's tuesday night ride and the CVS thursday night ride. Both require lights during the winter, but finish before dawn during the spring-fall. Great rides with riders of all speeds, so you'll find someone going your pace.

    The ride to Stone Mountain is always a good one. Just follow the bike path from Decatur to Stone Mountain and do a few laps around the mtn while you're there.
    On your way out and back you'll run into dozens of cyclists of all ages and abilities.

    Hey Andy, welcome to Atlanta thread. I'm Set and I work near Dobbins Air Force Base, so I'm pretty close to you. I commute from Kennesaw to the base 12 miles one way everyday. There's a nice bike trail starting from Windy Hill/Atlanta Rd to Cobb Drive/Atlanta Rd. It's a good 3 miles stretch.

    Since bikers are being listed as the endangered species in ATL, my fellow bikers at my work look out for each and as well for outsiders. I'll definitely let you know if there's a next group ride with my company. Maybe you could join up with us sometime in the future. Later.


    Set aka H23NC,
