First, check out http://www.bikeskills.com/. I love their how-2 videos. Maybe one of these days I'll master the descending right switchback.
Second, is it me, or is there a guy wearing a desert flightsuit in this picture, and how random is that?
The Sonoran Pirates (aka Son-Rats) is a team of mountain bikers from AZ, MI, CA, CO, MD, PA, UT, TX, ID & The U.K. The team was established in 2004.
Across the ranks they try and hold true to their fundamental belief that... "the only thing that matters is that you ride... not how fast you ride... nor the gear upon which you ride."
Yesterday, Diana and I were out riding Patapsco, and we ran into a guy riding one of these. It was a pretty lucky set of cirmcumstances, as he was stopped at a cross-roads, and let us eye-ball his rig for a couple of minutes. (Well, anyone who pays almost $10k for a bike probably loves to talk about it.)
I'd seen this thing in numerous magazine articles, but seeing one up close was pretty cool, especially considering their scarcity. The whole thing is titanium. It weighs less than 20lbs (Single Speed), and actually has a decent degree of bump absorption from all that titanium.
