I ordered a pair of nike poggio from River City on Friday. No tax and free shipping. The shoes were delievered on saturday by fedex. That is what I call fast service. Also, a great pair of shoes at a great price ($110)

They're running a deal on LS Tuscany's for $2,499. Real tempting. Glad you had a good buy ebb.

You two may be talking about different River City Bicycles. I believe there's a River City in Portland, OR, and I know there's one in Chattanooga, TN. The Tuscany is on sale at River City in Chattanooga. As a native Chattanoogan, I can tell you that the River City Bicycles here is a great shop, and is honest and reliable. By way of full disclosure, you should know that River City Bicycles sponsors my team, but I don't work there or have any other business relationship with them.

River City Bicycles in Portland is a good store, also. Full-service, a huge variety of merchandise, pleasant place.
Free espresso on Saturdays. They take a lot of unjustified shit because of being a "new store in town" opened by a Californian. The owner Dave is a good guy with great bike business ideas.

Hey Galibier,
Do you ever ride up signal mountain. Two years ago I was in a wedding on signal mountain. It looked like it would be a great climb.

The main road up Signal is a bit busy for my tastes, though I've ridden it. A better climb starts at the foot of Signal and crosses Suck Creek Mountain into Sequatchie Valley. From there, you can traverse the valley and climb up the Cumberland Plateau, or head north and cross back over Walden's Ridge. All in all, this place is a climber's paradise -- that's why I love it. By the way, who's your friend? I grew up on Signal. Regards --

I just returned from Chattanooga. From the Cherokee Trails rally to be precise. I guess it's not exactly in Chatt, but the cars were, and we stayed at a Comfort Suites on Williams St.

I'd come back for a visit with a "local yokel" as the place is intriguing, but the downtown is a bit disappointing w/o proper guidance. Mostly seemed a tad rundown.

Nice park there outside Cleveland. Whitewater power plant area. I forget the park name. Okocee? Anyway, good rally, though the park service guys are dimwits when it comes to races. I enjoyed the scenery, but the park service hassle means I will probably not come back for next year.

You ever get to ride those fantastic gravel/dirt roads through the park? Looked like heaven.

Oh well, Wellsboro is coming up!

Say, I saw a cyclist there at the rally (obvious by the shaved legs and muscle) wasn't you by any stretch was it? Likely not, but that would be odd.

Cheers!

I grew up in Chattanooga, in fact I just got back from there this morning. I graduated from Notre Dame and have/had a lot of friends from Signal Mtn. that went to Red Bank. My family still lives there.
