Bump, sold some things and added the seatpost and shock.  I also have a rear triangle for a Raleigh Phase if anyone needs one.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to make this announcement.  Marco Navarro, a tireless advocate to trail building, the National Mountain Bike Patrol and mountain biking in Illinois, passed away Thursday afternoon after a long fight with cancer.
 
If you knew Marco, you knew his passion for club and trail building and unique take he had on so many topics, which at times got you fired up to follow him and other times burst out laughing and ask him, what are you thinking?

You can pay your last respects to one of good guys next week, and if you can't make the wake or service, be sure to hoist a beer in his honer, he would appreciate that.

Monday, September 22: Visitation from 3-9 pm and 7pm memorial service at The Grove Memorial Chapel, 1199 S. Arlington Heights Rd, Elk Grove Village.
Tuesday, September 23: Mass at 10 am at St. Mary, 126 Herrick Rd, Riverside

Why is CAMBr Changing its Chapter Structure?
Many years ago there was only one CAMBr, but it contained 2 groups, Palos and Deer Grove.  The idea was to have a north and south trail system in Chicago. Long story short Deer Grove, the nations first Forest Preserve, had the signal track turned to multi-track or closed, because they were fall line trails. (most of the trails were there well before CAMBr).  As a result Palos became the major focus of CAMBr, but a group of members kept the flame alive up north and continued to look for riding opportunities. Then Saw Wee Kee and the Plainfield Bike Park came on the scene and there was a push to move to chapters, so the new trail systems were not dominated by Palos.

After many long nights of negotiating, uncountable versions of the by-laws and almost a few fist fights (mountain bikers are a passionate group) the 3 Chapter CAMBr structure was born.  It was absolutely the right structure for that phase of CAMBr.  It gave each group of builders the ability to work on growing their trail systems without "those guys getting in my business."  It was the structure that kept CAMBr together, and made us one of the biggest clubs in the country.
Today CAMBr is very different than it was back then.  North has gone from no trails to 3 very nice systems.  West has 2 bike parks and a mature XC trail system and South has expanded Palos and has their eye on several new systems. SRAM and the City of Chicago are in the process of building one of the largest bike parks in North America on the south side of the city. And CAMBr has become an IMBA Chapter.

Looking at how the landscape has changed, the board knew CAMBr had to change as well. We looked at several different models and decided on a North and South Region.  Each region will have a Director, Secretary and a Treasurer by election and then Trail Directors and Committees by appointment.  The Main CAMBr Board will have an Executive Director, Secretary, Treasurer, Grant Director and Marketing Director, all elected.  CAMBr members will be CAMBr members (no region affiliation), however they will be able to direct their membership dues to either region or the general fund.

CAMBr is one of the largest mountain biking clubs in North America and we are looking forward to continuing our growth with our new structure.

Thank you for your support and if you are not a member, why not?  Help us build a better ride, just click here Join! and help us build a better ride.

See you on the trails,

Jerry Stoeckigt
Executive Director

Friend is looking to get back into riding. His basic requirements: "disc brakes and double walled rims". Medium/17-18" frame. He'd like a 29er if possible. Ideally it'd be something around $300. Anybody got a medium not-vintage Rockhopper hiding in the garage?
