Hey people, we're back from Tokyo and the CMWC, had an awesome time and the event was huge... I'll post a link to more photos and write a better wrap up when I can, but heres a few teasers:

Man...the last week I've been checking out pics and vids from the CMWC in Japan and have been kicking myself for not being organised to make the time to go with the boys. Sheesh.

This is too awesome not to post. I hope any female viewers of Crankys don't feel objectified. If you do, email me, and I will happily kneel down and kiss the soles of your shoes to rectify this.

Most of you would have seen this by now, but for the rest, here is the story from Urban Cyclist...

"Here's the story. I was having brunch on first ave and first street with a a couple of friends including Alfred .It was a pretty sunny day and a good there was a good amount of pedestrian traffic .Nothing unusual. Alfred went out to make a call and spotted someone looking over his bike. Nothing unusual ,he got a hot ass cannondale with hot ass wheels.the guy was average looking,had a helmet and a bag.looked like your average joe casual biker.Suddenly this dude gets on his knees and pulls out a drill.At first Alfred thought he wanted to steal his wheels,until he saw the drill.Is this what it has come out to?!people stealing bike with drills?Anyways as he was getting ready to drill the ulock,Alfred comes in the restaurant and yells,!yooooo someones trying to steal my bike,lets go get him.and let me tell you this ass hole tried stealing the wrong bike.first it was a bike messengers bike and second it was Alfred's bike and the motherFkr got a temper sometimes.so we roll out to this dude and start pounding him.my first instinct was to get my U lock and bang on him,but my bike was already locked up so , we bumbrushed this dude and started pounding him.Everybody is watching and wondering why this dude is being plumeted ,but at that point we don't give a fuck.we had to make sure this asshole dosen't do it again.me personal i have had 2 bikes stolen,in like a month apart.fuck that shit.he did't even look like a bike thief!so while pounding him i reach out to put my phone in my pocket and realized i had a camera on my wait.i pulled it out and captured the second half of the beating!"

Life lessons using a saw and a roll of glad wrap

As our sunday (and wednesday) rides get longer there's a lot of merit in taking some tips from those who ride longer than us regularly...

Wade @ CT is a source of much wisdom... (baby wipes?)

Here he gives up some good signals/calls. I think we could all learn something here...

For all those going to Japan for the World Messenger Championships in September....you HAVE to watch this. It gives some tips but I think the hilarity is worth 10 minutes of your life.

Awesome Idea.

Print, hand drawn, stitched, re-make, the format does not matter.
Use a T-shirt as your canvas; entries are open, as long as the image is related to messenger.T-shirts submitted from all around the world will be exhibited at CMWC with artist profiles. If you are a racer competing at CMWC, pick your favorite T-shirt from the exhibition and wear it to compete in the race!This way, the submitted T-shirts will be exhibited as a moving exhibition.
