for the riders cause? as far as im concerned it is as much as any ride. every ride furthers to popularize biking and well isnt that the point. the more people on bikes the less in cars, the better off everyone is. so what if nike is a fucked up company, then how about you dont get you picture taken and drink all their beer.

I know I talked a lot of shit about this ride before I ever went on it but after doing it once I have to agree with larsen.

This is one of many cycling events that doesnt really embody the "midnight ridazz ideal" however it is fun.

I had a good time on the last one.

You dont have sign a waiver to ride..... unless you want to drink the free pabst at the finish.

Call me a sell-out if you want but fre beer is free beer.... lets finish last and make sure they run out of pabst before we leave.

RBI is wrong, as usual.

Theyre going to be photographing everything you wear. Pretty soon those nifty hip bags made in DTLA and mainly sold at orange 20 are going to be made in malaysia with a reflective swoosh on them. You might even see some staged shots of kids on fixies dressed as peter pan. PBS did a documentary on market research called "the merchants of cool."

I went last week almost by accident.
What a chaotic cluster-fuck of a ride.
Like a cross between crankmob and wolfpack.
But blasting at my own pace from hwhood to dtla and back with a group of cool people was actually pretty fun.
Free snacks and beer wasn't bad either.

I 100% can not understand how Nike can support this it was a disaster waiting to happen.
All the risk of Wolfpack with none of the discipline, leadership, or camaraderie. Not as fast but at times, much more hectic.

It only commercialization if you buy it. Period. It has nothing to do with Midnight Ridazz really. Its the Jockified Corpratized version of what we do. But some how it was funner than that sounds. Whatevz. I'd go this week but I am Djing at Barcade. So yeah ... Fuck Nike ... skip this ride and buy beers at above free prices and hear music that its 1,000,000x better. Yey I hijacked the NIKE thread. I'm a sellout hijacker.

If you are worried about Nike stealing your cool with their cameras or whatever, then show up to their ride wearing dockers and a polo shirt. Get all your friends to do the same. Let the corporation try to sort out the trend value of your bland clothes from the bland clothes of the skinny-jeans crowd.

I just got home from this ride.
It was not bad at all.
I do not buy Nike stuff, and I'm way out of their target demographic.
I loved the faster pace, but this led to the splintering of the group of 100 plus riders early in the ride. The fastest ones quickly disapeared when groups behind them got stopped at traffic lights. The cops seemed to be expecting us, the way they monitored us on Sunset from Vermont to Glendale blvd. I stoped at most of the red lights and watched the blinkies slowly fade into the distance. Some folks got tickets for running reds.
That said, I settled into a group doing a brisk pace. We covered 21 miles in a little more than an hour.
So, I loved the faster riding, which is hard to come by in most rides outside of Wolfpack. The food was tasty and the beer was cold (and free).
They took my picture, but they can do what they want with my thrift store cut off knickers and bike nashbar jersey. I really don't think Nike needs to do product research at this level anyway.
For a fun packed evening, all the food I could eat and beer I could drink, I spent $2.50 for the metro to and from Long Beach.
Not bad, not bad at all.

perhaps if i spoke douchebag, you'd be able to comprehend my words:

fashion marketers research styles, not function, idiot. perhaps today instead of trolling midnightridazz.com, you can go to PBS.org, look up that documentary and learn something, rather than ignorantly preaching that you're right. if you did, you might even learn something. you wont.

the ride itself was pretty cool. i was really interested in what Nike was doing and who organized it. Apparently the principal organizers were a bunch of guys from a high-end sneaker store called "undefeated." the route was cool, although the "ride," which consisted of people of all skill levels, ended up getting pretty stretched out. there was a cubcamp-speed hustle in the front and a slow mosey in the back.

Nike had some photographers and a videographer and were getting a ton of pictures of us. it was definitely a unique experience. as for the food, the blueberry crumb bars were off the hook.

i probably wouldnt have had fun if i didnt know half the people who were there. i also saw a few people i knew from outside of MR, which was nice. a lot of people showed up at 8 for the party, so the ride wasnt actually required to get the free food. it was funny to see a lot of "hollywood socialites" who showed up to be seen. stilline started screaming at the end "why are there so many girls here who don't ride?"

If MR isnt a breeding ground of cool, then why do most riders look/dress the same?

You dont have to buy Nike... but they've been in cycling longer than most of you.

If Nike wants to promote cycling--Im all for it... get more people on bikes... does it come at a cost, sure-- a few wacks lose their obscure sense of cool....

exploitation? where are your bikes made?

Hate oil, what about the oil on your bikes?

Love the environment? can is still ride on trails?

Gonna criticize Nike, when MR is filled with drug references, riding moms, and selling sex... how is MR any different?

If MR was promoting something valuable, you might always not notice from the ride postings.

Is Mom Riders, the best we can do?

I try to buy local as much as I can. the issue is that the sooner homespun products are produced in sweatshops, the sooner the people who produce them locally go out of business.

that said, i still think its for the best if Nike wants to "promote cycling." i met the guys who work at that expensive sneaker shop that put on the ride. they were pretty cool guys. i'd never spend that much on a sneaker, but they were cool guys. if their corporate sugar daddy wants them to have a good time, invite their friends and drink their booze so they can take pictures of us, so be it.

if you want to change Nike, why not wear a shirt that lets Nike know that you think American-made clothing is cool? it worked for American Apparel! when Nike decides that it's good business to stop exploiting people in the third world, they will--if only to the extent that it helps their bottom line.

i guess what i'm trying to say is that Nike's decision to spend more money on sponsorships such as Lance Armstrong, while cutting costs on labor is all a part of a grand business model.

imagine if they had spent more money to give their workers a fair wage: would they have taken a chance sponsoring a cancer survivor who was deluded enough to think he would race again?

the question is "what sells?" so don't blame Nike for putting coolness and athleticism above fair working conditions; blame the consumer (ruinedbyidiots) for supporting them.

Well, RBI, in the grand scheme of things, sure.... but whats your point... we're all specks. Unless you're having am existential moment, I dont see how that even applies to their comment.

The point is that MRs are the last to talk about the affects of "cool" and countering the notion... MR is built on "cool" at this point...

More than half the bikes you see on rides are built with cool in mind... a ton of bikes are trying to emulate the notion of a "cool bike". What you see are these half-ass projects, that serve very little to the rider's needs.

Moreover, bike shops cater to the same research that nike is doing. Orange 20 (i only bring them up because its probably sensitive to some) stocks a plethora of items that are superfluous in nature...

Riding around town doesnt require half the components you throw on your bike. I see more rider's on dope bikes, but barely can ride the machine, let alone take advantage of the craftsmanship behind the components.

The point: dont hate on Nike, when MR has a bunch cleaning up to do.

I think Debut213 knocked the Nike ride, called others sellouts, then gets his bike stolen at the event (unless i understood it wrong)...

In my mind, rides like Mom Ridaz, sold MR out.

it's not about clothing trends, its about business trends. American Apparel is the largest clothing manufacturer in the US, and operates stores around the world.

their workers earn a much better wage than other garment workers in DTLA. their employees overseas earn a better wage than other sweatshops. it's still an evil corporation, but part of their marketing strategy is to allow consumers to feel good about buying $30 t-shirts by ADVERTISING that they offer FAIR WAGES to their workers. the motivation is irrelevant; fair wages are part of AA's marketing approach, and that's what makes them unique.

not really looking for you... just noted your comments... you can sit still.

thanks for the invite... but Im pointing out the lack of creativity in naming a ride.. i could careless if the ride is fun or not... how would that change the opinion about a ride titled: Mom Ridaz?

Are you riding moms on the ride?
What is so special about riding a woman who has given birth at some point?
Why not Dad ridaz?
Why not 3rd cousin ridaz?

I have feeling the name has nothing to do with what is actually done on the ride, hence it is merely a lack of creativity or imagination... sure we can be immature now and then, but why push it as far as naming your weekly ride something like that?

a naked pregnant woman holding a beer? thats too easy! flip off the camera? come on...

Have fun, but I doubt thats what the OG's envisioned, but maybe I'm wrong, as you noted, Im entitled to my opinion.

I just wonder if there were a time when minds joined and said, "lets start a ride", and mom ridaz, was so readily agreed upon... Im not dissing, we're all grown, couldn't we think of something "better"?

But maybe fighting will solve the issue...

the fighting reference was a joke about how online posters tend to think that fighting trumps any point... i guess it didnt come across that way....

I mentioned it has nothing to with the content of your rides.

let me put this in a little context

The thread was about a Nike ride.
some (yourself) called out riders as sellouts if they attend
other mentioned MR is not about commercialism or whatever
I referenced Debut213 as a way of showing the inconsistency on/in MR
Debut213 ends up attending the Nike ride and gets his bike stolen

I called out Mom Ridaz because it promotes a kind of attitude that in my understanding is antithetical to MR = hence who is selling what out? call out Nike, but what about some of the shit that is promoted on MR?

I'm suggesting any of you are bad guys... never said it. But your response seems to be automatic because you know the implications that your group name and ads can provoke. You're well aware, but don't seem to care. Thats cool, but then why knock others for attending a Nike event (which you end up attending), when Mom Ridaz promotes smoking weed (not that its "bad"--but you should ride sober), riding momz (whatever you claim that means), and overall a easily assumed disrespectful attitude to women in general (whether you meant it or not). What do you imagine Mom Ridaz means to the public? Come on... and inside joke?

Is this what MR is about? I think it is about all the other things that you do, which can get missed in the ride title. Again, i never knocked the ride itself...

You really have to figure out what you want MR to be "perceived" as. Plus Debuts comments could be taken as referring to his bike, but that doesnt really matter, Ill gladly accept that I was mistaken about his attitude or hypocrisy...

I dont get what is being missed here?

If i called a ride, the racist ride, but claimed the title is an inside joke, and if you actually rode the racist ride, you would find out that were the most diverse group ever... does not change the "perceived" idea of what MR is promoting...

Again, much of the talk on MR is about MR being perceived as x,y,z.... and complaining abut how other ruin it for MR.

Look we all love bikes and riding them.... but youre going to walk a thin line calling others out, while MR has some cleaning up to do too.
