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."
Shop Profile: Arizona Bicycle Experts (ABE)
ABE has earned my patronage several times over - here's the latest reason... the shop owner Michael built me a sweet pair of wheels (Chris King Hubs twist laced to Stans Arch 29er rims) about a year ago. The wheels held up solid to the abuse of my svelte 250+ pound frame thrashing over the Tucson area mountain bike trails. A few weeks ago I was riding down in Safford, AZ and broke a spoke on the trail. Unfortunately, no local wrenches have twist lace skills so I was stuck until I got back to Tucson to get the wheel fixed by Michael. I opted to pay to have him re-lace the wheel with a standard semi-tangent cross 3 pattern. When I came back in Michael handed me the re-laced wheel (with new spokes and nipples) and said... we're good to go... you don't owe me anything our wheels are guaranteed. Now... that is a man who stands behind his product.
Go to his shop.
