May 4, 2007: CulturePulp hangs out with The Sprockettes -- Portland's first "all-female synchronized mini-bike dance troupe."

Endnotes & Digressions:

1. Grey-tones for this installment by Chad Essley.

2. Would you like to know more? You can visit the Sprockettes online at or

3. Want to see the Sprockettes for yourself? They’re performing May 19, 2007 at 11 a.m. at the Three Bridges Opening in Milwaukie and June 23, 2007 at noon at the Multnomah County Bike Fair at Colonel Summers Park (Southeast 20th and Belmont, Portland).

4. My photo-reference for this comic is online at CulturePulp's new Flickr account. You can view the set here.

5. As mentioned in the comic, the Sprockettes were rehearsing a routine built around the song "Old Bikes" by The Trucks. You can hear a sample of the song at The Trucks' Web site, or you can find the single here at the iTunes music store.

6. This comic will eventually have online bonus features! I’ll post a transcript of my 35-minute post-rehearsal conversation with the Sprockettes in the next few days.
