who pays for the post-ride lagers?

This is how two blokes from the Sonoran Pirates chapter in England settle up who is going to pay for the post ride lager. I think the skinny chap won. Just saying.


FS: 26" Voodoo Canzo (Large - 19") $1100 OBO

I picked up the frame NOS (new old stock) on eBay last year. I built it up for my cousin to ride in the 2012 24 In the Old Pueblo (which was in Feb). I replaced the Rock Shox Monarch rear shock with a Fox RP2. The bike is in good shape. It's a mix of mostly new with some slightly used parts. The front fork is a Manitou R7 that is still smooth but I suspect it will need to be serviced and some new seals within the next six months.

Ben (from Ben's Bikes) just got a new ride and is parting with his old bike. It's in good shape and was maintained by Ben (who is a bike mechanic).

If you are interested call Ben @ (520) 549-3050 and tell him Large Marge sent ya.

Sugar Hill Race Podium

Karyn competed in her first Mt. Bike race today and took 2nd place.  The Sugar Hill Cross Country, put on by Adventures for the Cure consisted of 6 miles of Patapsco State Park.

Now we have a new floor pump at the Smith house.  Well done!


Who are The Sonoran Pirates?

We love bikes. Mountain, Single Speed, Cyclocross, Road, BMX, Tandem, Push, Unicycle, Tricycle, Downhill, Dirt Jump, Touring, Fixie, & many others. Some of us are fast; most of us are not. We dig like minded people. Some of us sit down to pee. Some of us stand up to pee. We drink beer. We dig entities that make bicycling more rad, like... Epic Rides, Race Pace Bicylces, Arizona Trail Association, and IMBA.

We are NOT exclusive. Ride, smile... and you are with us.
