Hey im going to be attending college at the University of Arizona and I am from Georgia so i am new to Arizona. I own a downhill bike and am wondering if anyone has any information on downhill trails in tucson or downhilling in arizona in general.

Thanks for the input

I've looked for the scorpion and cant find it. But reddington pass is still a heck of a ride, for being a typical arizona trail. let me know what up for monday too, my thing got canceled so the university sounds prety good on the DK. We should start working on that place we checked out today too.

Hell yea! I am def down for a ride tomorrow (Today) I'm going to have to ride my azonic since I feel 20 times more comfortable on that than my bros bike. Not saying I don't like my bros bike cause I def do, he is going to love it. But you know how it goes. I need to talk to Jose about getting me a new hardtail frame and some new components, after 3+ years of abuse I don't see a lot of the parts on that azonic lasting too much longer. its allways nice to upgrade! Thumbs Up

if you get session 88 freeride you will still have tons of fun riding here in Tucson. Just ramp up the pro pedal and pin it! hopefully sooner rather than later there will be some other areas for us who like to kill it down the mtn rather than pedal up. Punk

I completely understand. Hopefully one day you guys can show me! I also am a builder of secret trails here and i know that it is important to keep it secret so they wont get torn down!
Thanks for all the help!

Ben you should try and make our Dec.29 Bugs/Prison/Millie shuttle ride. These trails probably aren't exactly what you are looking for but they are some of the best trails on the mountain.

Thanks for the lead on JJ bikes - why have I never heard of that shop before???

We got my son an older Intense M1 with a Shiver, and one of the bolts got sheared off of the bottom of the fork and all the oil leaked out. And this was the day after we spent $450 on upgrades at Cactus Bike! Poor kid was almost in tears...

Hey, I just wanted to follow up on this - I called Marzocchi and they had the replacement parts! I ordered them from Jose down at JJ and we're back in business!!!

(Even ordered a couple heavy duty springs, since he's not even 14 yet and he weighs over 180!!!)
