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."
Tucson Frame Builder: Cory Rosene

I keep running into stories about Cory Rosene's awesome hand built stainless steel 29'er that earned him the "Rookie of the Year" nod at the 2011 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. It peaked my interest since he is a fellow Tucsonan. It looks like Cory either studied or apprenticed under David Bohm (also a Tucson native frame builder) of Bohemian Bicycles website / blog. David's website and blog are woefully out of date... the last note indicating that he was suspending taking orders until he got his backorders finished. Cory's website appears to be under construction and no new info is available sans articles from the NAHBS. I friended Cory on Facebook, if he accepts, I'll try to get the down low and update this blog.
In the meantime here are a couple of links/articles about Cory Rosene of Rosene Handbuilt Bicycles...
