Dear Bitches...

Yours truly and the always kind, always quick Liam, are putting on an event just for you.

I am expecting that a Cranky Sundays team will win this. And if they don't, then you all need to re-evaluate your fucking priorities.

P.S. Spread the word.

P.P.S. Thanks for letting me use the photo of you Danny, AKA hope you don't mind.

They posted a screen grab from the site. Check it out HERE!
Thanks ladies!

Hot fuck...

Stolen from Fyxo, and I think Andy is right, this might just be the best fixed trick video I've ever seen. First couple of weeks on a fixed gear? Get fucked.

One gear No idea from chris akrigg on Vimeo.

Just to keep all'a'ya'll posted, we had some issues with getting American Apparel shirts for the Cranky Tees, they wouldn't allow us to order them wholesale, and I'm pretty sure youse aren't keen to pay $40 for your t-shirt, so we had to source them from somewhere else.

But, the good news is that they have been ordered, are on there way, and the t-shirts should be on your back within the next couple of weeks! The final price is $25, and I'd also like to point out that this print is only available on an athletic (dark) grey shirt. The print contains both black and white, making it impossible to print onto either of those colours.

Thanks for your patience.

Cranky Tees - Final Stage

Hey 'riders'.

I'm in the final throws of the Crankys T-shirt design.

Everything is under way, screen-printing is organised, and I will be purchasing shirts some time late this week, or early next week. What this means is that anyone wanting one, you need to let me know what size you are so I can get roughly the right amount of each size tee. At this point, the shirts are going to be American Apparel, so you know they'll be of a pretty good quality and fit. If that changes, I'll let you know, but it probably wont.

And the other thing that it means is if you are wanting a shirt, I will need to get payment from you soon too. Crankys don't got no bank account, yo, and I spend all my monies on my bike and my girl.

Lastly, the first run of shirts is going to be limited, so please be quick in getting your size to me. Don't do it on here, drop me an email. ryan AT pleasedesignok DOT com

WOW, 2 months waiting for a new wheel set from Velocity

does anyone have a spare 700c front wheel they can lend me for 3 weeks?
totes desperate for a ride....

i am reliable and can offer a slab for your hospitality.



Just want to say a huge thanks to Josh for hooking up the Cranky Sundays Sticks!

They are looking sick on the lucky bikes that copped 'em on Saturday, and it'll be good to see them go on more bikes so that EVERY BODY NOES!

I was impressed by the amount off people who turned up today! The ride got called and everyone followed through! Awesome guys!

The forecast said rain, thunder and hail...and to my shock and amazement people turned up wearing jeans and hoodies. Each to their own...but this was no day for jeans..oh no!!! There must have been about 30-40 mm of rain fall upon us on the way to franga. Im pretty sure every single one of us was wet matter how much gear we had on!

This is one of our cranky rides that will go down in history! not only for the distance and rain but for perseverance and team effort! Im pretty gutted i had to catch the train home! as a last min decision i tried to catch the pack only to remember a k or so down the road that i had a slow i limped back towards franga only to have my front tire blow out half way back. I Ended up having a lonely walk in socks (couldn't walk far in road shoes) through franga only to turn up to the station as the train pulled away. EPIC!

So with two flats and sore feet i finally arrived home to a hot shower!!!

Im pretty glad i came along, even with all the rain it was an awesome day and such a fun ride! Stoked!

EDIT- I added Hanson's pics here...H.
