    I sold the Specialized a short while ago. A young guy from the Morningside/VA-Highland area bought it. If you see it out on the road it wasn't stolen. He now owns it.

    I didn't get the full amount I was asking but at least I sold it. Some of the bikes I've sold in the past sat in the shed for 3 or 4 months before they sold. At least I now have money to do some long overdue upgrades on my 10-1/2 year old Litespeed -- new handlebars, stem, seatpost(?), etc.

    I'm planning on checking out the Stone Mountain Trail, but I'm a little too far away to ride out there. I'm not sure where to park. I'd like to pick the trail up somewhere in Decatur, maybe near Sycamore and Ponce or the Decatur public library. Can anybody make a recommendation about parking in that area?

    Parking anywhere in downtown Decatur can be a bit of a nightmare, depending on when you're there. If you're near MARTA, you can get to downtown Decatur quite easily via the Decatur MARTA station. That's what I recommend...

    was good to get out this morning on the commute. 49 deg is ok if you dress right for it. just having a bit of trouble with the sun coming up so late. at 5:30am it's just plain old dark. nice thing though is no buses at the middle school to battle with. just have to deal with them later this afternoon on the way home. oh well. weather was clear and dry. good ride.

    49 degrees? I'm not ready for that yet.
    It was 62 when I left for my 38 miler. Had to remove the base layer undershirt once I got to Stn Mtn.
    I'll be "ready" for cooler temps in a few weeks.

    Hello ATL folks, I think this is my first post to this thread but I've been a forum member for a number of years.
    I live up in Gainesville, GA and do most of my riding in the in and around Gainesville and Dahlonega. I've ridden the Comet a couple of times with my wife (a novice cyclist) and she loves it. Wouldn't mind riding it all the way to Alabama and back some day. I'm presently riding a steel Land Shark and an aluminum '86 Vitus 979.

    My question; with the kids in other states now we thought a Thanksgiving bike ride might be a novel thing to do. However I've checked around and can't find anything within driving distance. Anyone know of one?

    Thanks and enjoy the great riding weather we've been having. The summer's heat and humidity almost had me off the bike entirely!

    Steve

    Hi Steve. It's about time you posted something here.

    A Land Shark? I have a friend who has one. Not sure what model, but it's his favorite ride.
    Got any pics of the Land Shark?


    There's a thread in the main Southeast subforum asking about Thanksgiving rides. We're having company that day so I'm not sure if the wife will let me ride before the big feast.

    The BicycleGeorgia ride calendar doesn't show any rides until early next spring.
    http://atlbike.org has no rides either.
    The Southern Bicycle League ride calendar has this for Thanksgiving day. Pretty slim pickin's.

    Thanks for the response RonH. Yep, I'll post a pic of the Landshark and Vitus shortly. Guess I'll have to organize my own Thanksgiving Day ride.

    I've lost weight since mid-summer and when I went riding yesterday my butt and hips were kinda cool without the "extra padding". Today I went to 3 bike shops looking for non-padded liners but no one had them. Everyone had padded. So I went to Kohl's and found some Jockey brand polyester boxer/briefs (with no seam in the "wrong" area) for $0.60 per pair. What a sale!!!
    I'll find out tomorrow how well they work.

    As a "rider beware" sort of warning. I would certainly call ahead on any of the rides listed on SBL to be sure that the details posted are accurate, especially as it pertains to the type/speed of the ride. I went to one of the Vinings ride that was listed as beginner pace, and had to be brought back in to the shop by a kind fellow. Apparently the beginner ride had ended some weeks prior I was not aware in spite of making a call about it. I doubt it would be an issue to any seasoned rider, but thought I might mention it for the folks lurking in the background.

    Sorry you didn't get to ride. Next time take your bike.
    I rode to Stone Mtn Friday and yesterday (see the Did You Ride Today thread). I was over-dressed for the weather Friday and slightly under-dressed yesterday. After the rain today, tomorrow and maybe Tuesday I think I'll know what to wear.

    I was able to get out a few times. I got a nice 50 miler through Red Top Mountain in on Saturday.

    Met up on saturday with a mechanic at the lbs to trade some parts. I traded my full Shimano Sante gruppo off of my '88 Nishiki for some 9 spd dura-ace and ultegra parts as well as everything I needed to get my new Fuji Track pro frame together. Carbon fork, carbon stem, Fizik Gobi saddle, sram rival crankset, and some bontrager racelite bars.
