Good places to rent road bike in Atlanta

Any good places, going down there for a week Sept.1 to Sept.8, any good places that rent decent road bikes?
Thanks.

Where are you staying while in ATL? There is a good one (EPIC) in McDonough (south) of the city. but if you're staying up near Buckhead/Sandy Springs (north side) it would probably be a hassle renting.

The two bike shops I know of in the Alpharetta area are Roswell Bicycle (770) 642-4057 and Alpha Bikes (770) 410-1928. I don't know if either of them rent bikes but they are the most likely places. If they don't rent then they probably know someone who does.

Seems to me that Roswell Bicycles rents bikes.
The Silver Comet Depot rents bikes, but they're not near Alpharetta.

Last time I went by, Epic was gone. Did they move or close up shop??

The moved 2 blocks away 1993 Jonesboro Rd to the Towne Center Village. https://epicbicycles.com/map.cfm?StoreID=2 Better layout and better access to products. They have a pretty good size sign on the building. Next to a TKD and Marble Slab.
