RIDE OR DIE ...CRANKSTON ..23/8/09

On the chopping block this weekend,the reason for this is due to a major fluffing about that
will more than likely occur due to peeps heading to the swap meet (which is cool) and is an oversight of mine forgetting this was on.The new plan is to meet at the heist at 10.30 in the morning sunday 23/8. i feel we need to be on the road at this time,therefore giving everyone enough time to do it comfortably, also the heist is a centralized meeting spot without confusion,,in saying that come caffeinated,lycrad,and keen to ride or die !!

benny tatts said...

fuck, i was happy with the 16th, gonna be in NZ on the 23rd

Benzy said...

To be honest, i,m more than keen to ride to frankston both sundays,so whoever wants to swap,swap and if you want to ride holla,and we can rock it,we just need to be on the road rolling at 10.30.

Trigger said...

I'm rolling this Sunday, can't the following.
So 16th it is for me. Where do you wanna meet?

HANS-DC said...

I say meet at the swap at 10.

This Sunday is better for me as well.

Trigger said...

I'm cool with that, have a quick gawk at stuff, and then piss off. I would also be happy to meet any south siders at an arranged place and time if they don't want to go to the swap meet

Benzy said...

Cool,I won't be hitting the swap meet ,so
will meet you on beach rd st kilda.

ben said...

Count me in for this Sunday! Got all amped for it so next week would be to much for my weak legs to bear...

HANS-DC said...

I think a few other 'non' cranky peeps wanna come as well.

Can we all agree and decide on ONE meeting point at ONE time so it doesn't get all confusing...?

Ian Human said...

Meeting point, 10am at the swap-meet, for roll-out at 10:30am. Anyone who buys shit is welcome to drop it at my place on Smith St on our way.

I'm going to go to a really great cafe just off Smith St around 9:15 for some homemade baked beans, eggs and bacon before the meet if anyone wants to join me.

evisu said...

Sweet! So this Sunday it is then..

Fingers crossed the weather holds up..

Ryan - Rosamommas?
I like Newtown Social Club better... but then i know more waitreses there than at Rosas.

You got a new chain yet? It occurred to me that if you had a new chain the issue might be in your chainring/bb/cranks shifting slightly under load to drop the chain.

did you get a new ring or cog when you did all your upgrades?

Ian Human said...

Rosamomma's indeed! I haven't been to the Social Club so I'd be more than happy to check that out. I love Rosies, but if anyone does decide to join me, seating could be an issue.

Picking up a new chain from Dan tonight after work. You're right, they could be an issue. But when I was pushing it on the cobbles I think I may have stretched the chain because it popped off right at the end. Chucked it back on and after that I heard a bit of a creaking noise on every second rotation. Thought about taking it easy on the hill, decided not too, the rest is history.

Trigger said...

I like breakfast

Benzy said...

i will c u all on the way, beach rd st kilda.

Chaz said...

cool - see you guys at the swap meet then. on a another note - just saw Jack (who smashed into the bike path pole last sunday) - turns out his wrist was broken! out for the standard 6 weeks apparently.

HANS-DC said...

I think his name is Sean. Jack was the other asian dude

Someone said the wrist was broken in 3 places!

Trigger said...

Thank god for Benzy and his Peas.
On another note: I think it's pretty clear that;
a) We suck at being doctors
b) It's about time we convinced a doctor to come on a Sunday

Ian Human said...

Is there a back-up plan?

"Cloudy. Areas of rain developing around dawn, easing to isolated showers during the afternoon. The chance of thunderstorms from the late morning. Winds north to northwesterly averaging 35 to 50 km/h tending west to northwesterly up to 40 km/h during the morning."

cam green said...

if there is a back up plan it better be have room for secret spandex, carbon road shoe wearing peps...

nikcee said...

let see what the weather lords offer us, but maybe the backup plan is lurking at the swap meet and then doing skids in a parkade if the weather is as 'balls' as the report is saying.

benny tatts said...

Damn weather, DISC is looking very appealing to me at this stage... I really want to do the franga return ride but it wouldjust not be fun if the weather report rings true.

Rosamond is the business. My sister used to own it, she bought it off her friend Bridgette, who married the Genovese rep who was supplying their caffeine, which is how I met the Genovese family and how i became a made man in the syndicate. Sneaker Freaker office used to be opposite, above Somebuddy Loves Me, which used to be called Buddy Love and was started by SF head honcho Woody. Lotta history for me at Rosamond, and the new owner who happens to be named Ros, is a sweetheart, and i know all the girls who work there and i usually dont have to pay for shit and i love free shit.

nikcee said...

benny - whats yr sis's name?

my lil bros old roommate used to be an owner too. trying to remember her name, i remember she was married to this rad guy.

my friend charlotte (lil sis of my bros girl) worked at buddy love/somebody buddy for about 5ys too.

benny tatts said...

My sisters name is Anna (she isnt married but her boyfriend is a muso named Ben), she co owned it with a girl named Di (who married another Ben, who rides fixed and has an awesome job doing props for films) Before them it was Bridgette, who started Rosamond, so it would have to be one of those three?

Whats with all these fuckin rad Ben's gettin around? We've got enough to start our own group ride...

HANS-DC said...

Benny Sundays?

Chaz said...

I'm all for Benny Sundays. I want to see 20 people get take away coffee's from 7seeds and all say their name is Ben.

nikcee said...

Yeah... Di, that was it. Ben was really cool. All the boys in that appt started riding fixed about the same time i think. Will and Adam (my bro) still live there. Will was some hotshot DnB DJ at one point.

anyways... back to the point at hand. weather is still looking mighty ugly for tomorrow. and very windy too... i guess ill see people @ breakfast or the swap meet and we will call it from there?

Benzy said...

i,m riding either way, rain,wind,hail,shine.

Benzy said...

maybee ; )
