South of ATL: New to this cycling thing

Hello all,
Im new to this whole cycling thing. I live about an hour south of Atlanta in a town some of you know by the name of Senoia. Im 21 and a college student. I just recently picked up the interest for cycling because my main hobby(cars) is too expensive for a college student. I grew up riding motorcycles and trail bikes and figured id give this a spin (no pun intended). I just recently put life back into a 1980 Schwinn Suburban but after the work was done i realized the frame is too small and that i need a 24 inch frame. Is there anyone here local or somewhat local know of a good place to get another older road bike frame that i can convert everything over to? Help would be very much appreciated

Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums. I don't think I qualify as even somewhat remotely local, so sorry, no help there.

Welcome to Bike Forums. I know exactly where Senoia is. The Lewis Grizzard ride (held in October) starts in Moreland and has a rest stop for lunch in Senoia. I used to do the ride when I lived in Decatur. I also have friends who live in Senoia.
To find a bike thats more your size you can try craigslist.org or stop by sopo bike coop.
Good luck.
