Cranky? Natural Progression or the end of Cranky as we knew it?
The beauty of Cranky, even through it's many transitions and transformations is the communal ride. Whether we ride to Franga or just down to the Museum. There has always been a ride involved. In a recent turn, Cranky has become just another Spoke Card in the Melbourne Fixed Gear Scene. Don't get me wrong, it has been awesome to be a part of this growing culture. The opportunity to compete in the odd Alley Cat, Roller Race or hit the Track has opened doors for many of the "Cranky Crew". But I'd just like to ask.. When did Cranky become just a meeting point? What happened to the Cranky Ride? Does every weekend need to be a competition? And most importantly, Is this the end of Cranky?
