    Southeast Valley -> Gilbert But I work in Tempe,
    so no issue for me to take a little drive on a lunch
    break.

    Thanx for the suggestions. I've heard of the South
    Mountain Bikes store.

    Ever deal with Az Bike Source, at Arizona ave. & Warner?

    or Supergo in Chandler?

    I've never dealt with AZBS but have purchased components/acc. from Supergo.
    Supergo is a large chain hiring people with little knowledge about bikes but
    usually has great deals on stuff if you know what to buy.

    I suggested these local bike stores because you can get better
    recommendations and fitting than at Supergo. AZBS may also be an lbs so
    they may still be better than SG.

    Don't let South Mountain intimidate you. The Dessert Classic Trail is a
    good beginner ride and remember, it's not a crime to walk stuff you can't
    ride yet.

    There's also a good bunch of guys/gals in a group called RideAZ. I'm not
    affiliated but know several of the people in the group. They send out ride
    info via email and the riding ability ranges from beginner to extreme.
    Sorry I don't have a web address or contact you can get in touch with. I'll
    check with one of the guys I ride with to see how one gets involved with the
    group.
