I THINK I MIGHT EXPLODE! some of you have said that I am a spaz. well, i think this Crank Mob will prove you WRONG. I AM THE SPAZZIEST SUPER MOST EXCITED CRANKMOB SPANGLE of them all. In fact, I think this might do it.

I think

I might

Weather report said it was going to be 90-100 degrees in San Berdo.
One of the the drivers was wanting to go rock-climbing this weekend, but was bitching about burning his hands on the rocks.
So, looks like things will be turning in our favor and making a tide for the good.
Which will make it a nice, send-off ride for me before I start out on my trucking career again.

At this special crank mob event, I (thanks to PC) will be wearing my Birthday outfit. no, not that one, the very special officer naughty outfit.

PUBLIC HUMULIATION ALERT:

PC wants some police brutality, and I will be passing my cop hat around for donations $10 a strike!

All for charity.

Two things:

1 - If you threw your in and out trash into my cute bike basket, good going. your drink stained/ruined my white long sleeve shirt.

2 - I found a light. If you can describe it to me in sufficient detail, I will give it back to you. if you can't, I'm keeping it, cause I like it.

meghan - was it the light we were using after the crash? i think its big bike dans.

dude that broke his collarbone (wtf is up with those injuries as of late?) - you left your water bottle and your bandana on the curb. well, i sort of left your bandana on the curb, since i took it off your neck to assess your injuries. anyway, i gave it to randy since she said youre from her area. so if you really need to get it back, like for posterity or whatever, shes got it. your water however went into my stomach and then the bottle was thrown in the trash. bummer you crashed, but its a good thing to have people like meghan and myself who are trained in first aid to help the injured riders. its also a good thing we have people who are actual legit emts, like the guy who took over after myself. i didnt get your name, but high five to you, wherever you are.

a big FUCK YOU goes out to whoever was setting off the fireworks. yeah, that shit is cool and all, but at least wait to set them off before we leave, not when we get to the stop. thats like the bat signal for cops. in beverly hills when the two split up groups met up again, there was a squad car and a police suv following you guys not five bike lengths behind. whoever decided it was a good idea to light fireworks then needs to get their fucking head examined. also, when we got "kicked out" of that 7-11 in westwood and we took that detour through the alley, there were more retards yelling stupid shit to the cops. remember what happened on the star wars ride the last time someone did that? probably not because i bet last night was your first ride.

a big FUCK YEAH to alex thompson for commenting on my selective morality last night.

Most epic ride EVER!!!

CRANK MOB GAVE ME A NECK CRAMP

FIREWORKS WERE AMAZING

timing of some fireworks could be improved

FIREWORKS CREW'S NAME IS NOW CHINA CLIQUE

CHINA CLIQUE PLEASE COME TO EVERY CRANK MOB

illafilla had a gnarly looking fracture almost poking out of the skin . . .

Truck dance party was fucking amazing

But Samohi Prom crash was the best.

Beverly Hills PD was pretty tolerant = just a move a long treatment. I think we had that critical mass where no one wanted to give tickets to a cranky mob.

Things I've learned from last night.

-Superior, upper-body strength will do nothing to stop chocolate-covered, pandemonium.
-Inhaling fireworks smoke could cause your throat to dry up.
-Inflatable beach-balls could be deadly weapons when Franz sends one whizzing past your dome.
-Despite having tasty, early-AM treats, JackInTheBox maintains a "motor-only" policy.
-ALC-Team Ridazz can be serious and ass-talkingly, hilarious at the same time.
-Hill-bombings tend to get a little squirrely when there's a 100-200+ and fissures run rampant through the road surface.
-People with trucks and sound-systems are fair game for a stage-diving platform.
-Brassknuckle thought it was a pouch.

All in all, this just goes to show that every C.R.A.N.K. Mob has a different flavor.
Not every Saturday night's going to be the same.
This ride is still quite, young and it's still evolving into the beast that the "good-book" claims will eat our souls.

Maybe the immature morons who insist on riding at 3x the pack velocity, randomly strafing diagonal lines right through the pack, causing frequent emergency stops and not-infrequent crashes could stay the fuck away in future? Or at least ride off the front of the pack. I know I could certainly live without nursing my girlfriend's wounds and leaving the ride early because some moron can't muster up the common sense to ride in a straight line or the decency to come back and apologize after knocking her down.

And I sure as hell could live without the lecture on how we should ride faster. It's fucking C.R.A.N.K. Mob. There is no destination, so why the hell should we be in a hurry to get there. If you don't like the pace of our party rides, feel free to show up for wolfpack.

there was DEFINITELY some moronic riding going on

right as the 2 groups reunited some guy from the other group was riding in oncoming traffic (straight towards my group). thank GOD i had a front brake, or i am 150% positive i would have needed hospital attention. he flew right towards me (150% head on) and i had to hit the brake so hard that my rear tire left the pavement and my bike lurched into the air at a 45 degree angle.

what the fuck man!!! at least he said sorry, but i could have had so many injuries that i was queazy for nearly 10 minutes thinking about it.

cesars bike is fine. the speaker got a little dinged up, but thats the way particle board crumbles. he said that he would have gotten hurt alot more if his bike didnt have all the extra weight on the back of it. he just got a tiny abrasion on his elbow from smacking the pavement. clean that shit so you dont get a staph infection!

Yeah his bike was rideable, but still his new sound system (battery had a gash in it, wires ripped, speaker is totaled) grips, mirror, horn, rack, not to mention his elbow was dinged and he has road rash down his side and back. I know that riding in a pack has risks and that sometimes accidents happen, but if you are doing really stupid shit (I didn't see the crash, that's why I was asking what happened) you should really take responsibility for it and hook a rider up.

i witnessed the crash and ran over the front of cesars bikes and possibly cesar.

this is how it went down.

i rolled up to the right of erik, i think thats his name, and did a little skid. cesar was somewhere just ahead of us. erik then did a little skid, then i did another little skid, then i looked forward. i think erik tried skidding and lost control, hit cesar, and fell. cesar fell in front of me, and i ran over cesar. i went down the hill a little bit, turned around and came back up the hill.

Another thing I noticed was the fact that there were really, no arrests made this time.
Aside from the "move-along" treatment, it seemed as if the local-heat was under some sort of "stand-down" order.

As far as Spook riding through parking garages, that there's an amazing feat indeed.
I first saw that action when he made an appearance in N.Hollywood Territory.

That was the sickest most ridiculous thing I have ever done on a Saturday. Thank you unknown organizers of this almost religious event. Also, I'd like to sincerely thank all the folks that wore silly costumes and rode silly bikes, entertained I was.

The fireworks may have been ill timed a couple of times, but hot damn they were awesome. And the cops were chill for the most part, try to be nice to them no matter how inebriated you may be.

Meeting back up w/ the 2nd group was dope, kinda felt like Mother of All Rides. We gotta get split up more often.

Thanks C mob for a job well done!

I'm not sure how I missed the take down and arrest of PC. Must of been when we did the run for last call for alcohol at 1:45.

I didn't really think the timing for the fireworks was that bad. I was next to the SUV unit when that fireworks went off. He happen to have is window down and he didn't get all worked up about it. Look to me that his goal was that we kept moving and get out of their district. Which bring me to something else that kind of bugs me.

Why do we scatter when we see flashing lights? This happened twice at both liquor store stop I believe. What is it that we're doing wrong that warrants leaving? We're at that store making purchases, and it's my understanding that the parking lot is for the customers that are making purchases. So what gives? Why scatter like roaches?


Things I thought were awesome was the poop running around. The fireworks. The very awesome parking structure. MikeBikeMike's dance mix. The new peeps on the scene.

The big turn offs were the a - holes doubling back and buzzing next to the pack going the opposite direction. WTF is that about???? I didn't see the accident, but I hope that gets resolved by all parties involved. I need to get with Sonny since I took out his back wheel when I couldn't get unclipped at a stop.

One more thing, there was way more than 200 ridazz at this ride. I'm thinking somewhere around 400 peeps is close.

"not getting open container/minor in possession tickets."

That's easily handled. Put your can down and don't claim responsibility. Sure the cops might be able to spot one or two peeps handling a can, but in the situation like the 7-11 stop, there was one cop there. The last thing that guy(s) want to do is give someone an open container ticket. They have far more important things to do Saturday night than deal with a petty offense.

One thing i've noticed that hasn't been discussed yet (as far as i've read) with regards to large group rides and a safety issue is, the fixies who feel its necessary to do really wide skid stops.

If you are on a ride designed for that fine, but when you have a mix of all level of riders and lots of people, you are going to take out someone else or cause others to hit their brakes or swerve to avoid you. I've witnessed this a bunch of times and its unnecessary showboating. There's a time and place for it but not at someone else's physical expense.

RBI - "which 7-11 stop only had one cruiser show up?"

Me -
It was that stop where we had the disco dance on the pickup. The cop was off to the side with the lights on. We still had peeps in the store and we started taking off.

@Stevo4, you bring up a valid point. I saw that too. That could make some ridazz jump, turn the wrong direction and cause a wreck. I'm feeling like a worrying parent, but we have seen what happens when people do dumb things. Ain't cool putting someone through 2 months of rehab.

I had a really good time. Thanks K, R, AT, and 'arry for putting this on and Barleye for keeping me up to speed with the group's location while i helped a new rider fix a rear flat tire at the start.

I was glad the massive group was pretty mindful of 'leaving no trace' but people were still riding in the left, lane and the center turn lane, which is illegal to ride in for more than like 50 feet, plus when it turns into a left hand turn lane for the opposite direction, riders were once again riding on the wrong side of the road. Besides being unsafe, it pisses the cops off - who, in my opinion this time, were frequently present, but overall pretty tolerant and cool.

Lastly, another thanks to Barleye, who stopped to help Eddie, who i heard had a pretty gnarly crash. GET WELL SOON EDDIE.

Eddieboy slammed really hard face first on the sidewalk near Venice and Centinela. He was totally out of it and wanted to get back on his bike and meet up with the group. His tire was tweaked badly and his eye was blown up pretty big and a small gash on his 4-head. I think he even lost a nipple from what he said. Should his new name be NIPPLE? sorta like a fat guy named Tiny? He said he wanted to find the dude that round housed him in the chest to make him fall. That's what he said happened. Something about 3 dudes on the sidewalk and one kicked him in the chest. You'd have to ask him about that for more detail. anyhow, the rim was bent back and he and a few others met up with the group i think. i bailed from there. john (last name?), lance, a SNS guy (i forgot his name), and 2 other guys rode with eddie.

too late for a long story short, but eddie didn't look good after the fall. fell really hard. get well eddie.

Wow, that really sucks about Eddie. I thought I saw him on the sidewalk as I was passing with the crowd but someone told me that they saw him at a stop later and he was fine. I hope he's okay.

What was up with the BMX dudes making trouble last night? I saw them spitting on cars, breaking other riders' lights, and intentionally knocking over bikes that were peacefully resting on kickstands. When we've got negative energy like that rolling with us, things like what happened to Eddie actually don't seem out of place. That sort of shit puts us all at a sort of karmic risk.

What can we do to combat destructive behavior like that in the future? Would it do any good to ask them to leave or would that just perpetuate the friction?

Man, that does not sound like very much fun. I hope he had a good time up until then.

I saw him at the Ralphs before mustache bridge and the whole left side of his face looked like the road ate it off, but it might have just been blood from a gash? Either way, I wish him a speedy recovery!

Barleye (or someone who was there and knows details) should make a new thread to inform people. I would be willing to donate a little to help take care of his busted up wheel properly too.

Thanks tomato for the video of Venice Circle and the fireworks!! And speaking of, thanks to the anonymous fireworks collaborators, man that shit rocked!!!!!

As opposed as I am normally to any kind of authoritarian control within a group, this crap needs to be nipped in the bud before it grows... which it will if unchecked. If I ever see a bicyclist vandalizing other Ridazz bikes, I will destroy their riding machine immediately. Seriously.

I wasn't there last night. Can anyone else elaborate on the above? Sounds totally unacceptable. Amongst new riders there's always been a dash of us-against-them(cars), but never us-against-us.

It sucks to have to ask people to leave, but behaving like that doesn't put you in the 'people' category; it puts you into the 'asshole' category.

Last time I rode we were chanting CRANK MOB, not ASSHOLE MOB.

RE: assholes parties and such

I propose summary justice: valve cores removed from tires, baking flour dumped on head.

Getting kicked out of parties when younger improved my social graces in later life.


Not to encourage patriarchal hegemony in the wonderful anarchy that is MR, but organizers of rides should eject unwelcome riders. To do so visibly (and audibly when Harry is around) should encourage a healthy dose of shame and tribal justice.

Handbone, are you saying "assholish" behavior is OK on a ride? I'm not talking about playing fast and loose with traffic laws but vandalizing other bikes and causing accidents? Is this your definition of "party time" and c'est la vie?

There is ONE thing that I've ALWAYS seen on rides... at the very least it's been an atmosphere of Us (bicyclists) against Them (people and drivers who make bicycling unsafe and unpleasant). If that changes will you just say "c'est la vie"

I think that Funderstorm on the jetty must have been the highlight of the evening for me. I'd not yet been bitten by that particular bug, but I must admit that I quite enjoyed its intoxicating effects. The only problem, of course, is the persistent itching for more Funderstorm.

In spite of all the bad things that went down, there were so many good things going on that I'm hard pressed to take away any sour memories of the Mob as a whole. Seriously, I could hardly imagine a more epic way to spend the shortest night of the year.

Also pretty epic was my ride home, taking a detour up Laurel Canyon, along Mulholland and back down into Hollywood at 6:30am, just for the hell of it. I'm going to try to do that after every Crank Mob from now on.

Yeah I thought this ride was one of the best Mob rides I've been on. The NRG was pretty fuckin high the whole night long. The fireworks were totally awesome. I might also add that the doods doing the fireworks were VERY cautious with the crowd and not the least bit reckless. I seem to remember the fireworks were somewhat of an issue. Hopefully that's not the case now.

The cops for the most part were tolerable and even some seemed to enjoy us.

I got home real freakin late as I got back to the start only to find I left my keys at Mustache Bridge! I rode back and founded out that a couple of fishingdoods found them. I'm sure good karma came to them today.

The a-holes in question I think can be dealt with effectively without turning this into a policing ride. I say we post pics of these a-holes and in folder called "Rotten Apples." This puts them on notice with everyone that reads this forum. It will somewhat keep them in check. If they do decide to alter their behavior, they can be deleted from this folder. This way everyone is doing their part and it doesn't fall on one or a few people to take care of this problem.

I get mine at Rite Aid but you might be able to find it at a Ralphs, etc.

And it must have rubbed it off somehow, because it doesn't come undone easily like a band-aid. and although it does stick better over an area that's been shaved, i didn't notice that your skin was particularly sweaty that would cause it to come loose.

dickheads and assholes invading the ride was a precedent set years ago and it wont ever change....it is all part of the ebb and flow of this ride and the culture surrounding it. there will always be some people who don't get it or who cause trouble... but that has always been solved with just everyone as a group being the change they want to see in the world and spreading love. sooner or later the bad elements realize they are acting stupid and calm themselves down or they get bored and leave. if they do something damaging then they should be witnessed and held responsible but making up a bunch of rules to decide what is right and wrong is a slippery slope.

Having a section called rotten apples is also not a good solution. that's divisive and subject to the opinion of the witnesses who saw the "assholish behaviour" then there would need to be definition of assholish behaviour and then rules defined and thresholds tested and people offended and false accusations from haters and yadayada. no reason for it. we know the spirit of the ride. it doesnt need to be defined....

I would say the solution is just through dialog between witnesses and the offenders. make sure if someone causes a crash that they are witnessed and brought back to the seen to take responsibility and rectify their mistakes. somehow let it be known that the offenses are not welcomed by those that witness the assholish behaviour. the "assholes" should have a chance to correct themselves and everyone should trust that even the worst assholes know when they've gone too far and correct themselves if they want to be part of the fun. that's easier said than done, but it's pretty much the way things have been. I've seen a few p[eople that I would personally have judged as "assholes" become very cool with time and understanding of the spirit in which we ride.

Hey everyone, thanks for an awesome ride. I took the GPS route of the ride again last night (and I noticed that the east branch looks kind of like the face, red added in MS PAINT for effect):


Anyway, click on the image for the whole route for anyone who wants to play around with it. You can also download the KML file on that link and import it into Google Earth and add your own placemarks, zoom, see 3D buildings, etc.

Also, big thanks to stillline and whoever else chipped in to pay for the beer at Ralph's. I will buy you a beer for doing that next time, just as soon as I know what you look like or who you are. I just started going on these rides so I don't know anyone. Thanks to all for an awesome ride, though I was bummed some people got hurt...

The dude with one leg is a pro track racer. I've seen him before riding around in silverlake, he is CRAZY FAST.

His name escapes me at the moment, however.

HAHAHAHA........

asparagus caught the exact move that peeps are getting pissed off about. It's the fly-through-the-pack-at-twice-the-speed-of-everyone-else move! Happens at the 15 second mark. Nice move a-hole!!!

Good video btw asparagus!

Crank Mob is officially too big. We can't even fit in parking lots anymore and many people got lost at some point. It's still fun but harder to have fun that it used to be.

there were so many people at that ride. i am currently collecting a few more mp3s to email to you that you may or may not want to use. im also trying to transcribe my tape list for you, in case you want to trade or whatever. having hardcopies of shows beats having mp3s or a cdr.

Gotcha. I still have my Nakamichi BX 150 tape recorder, but the rubber inside is starting to deteriorate and needs to be serviced. I still have my bootlegs in the closet, but haven't been played in a number of years. I'd like to transfer them all before they totally turn to dust. But, i'm not really looking to add to the collection at this time. And again, i do have all the Dead tracks i need for the ride and more, just now want to swap some of it out and fit in other related bands (as we discussed).

Thanks!

It hardly seems necessary to preserve your old cassettes. The vast majority of shows are available in mp3 format from the live music archive and many are available in some kind of lossless format, too. I had a pretty sizable collection and I'd bet that better than 95% were available for easy download, most of them soundboards. The only tracks that are illegal to distribute losslessly are those that have been officially released by the band, I believe. That was the case last time I checked, anyway.

RBI,

Thats great. but my thoughts on the related music was also stuff that all the non-deads would appreciate or may have heard before. I have 2 phenomenal JGB tracks that i intend to play from 72 that just really rock. But no one will know the songs. So, i was going to introduce Airplane, and other bands that may have played with them during the time period, etc. Thanks for putting the time in.

FUNDERSTORM'S last CRANK Mob for next four months! BANG! and we out! I have one request for my return,

So, its pretty obvious the ride is on the verge of becoming its own nation and will soon secede from the union and become The People's Republic of CRANK Mob and begin researching experimental fundependent farming/distillation techniques and training sweaty strapping men to manufacture fireworks and pizza and sharply curvy women to sexyhumpdance everyone and bikes will be the excuse to party and to party will be the excuse to bike and Funderstorm will be able to finish shows and then sell t-shirts and the national flag will have at least fourteen different flourescents and crashing into parked cars will be the new kickstands and no one will mind me while I invent a new humanity while the rest of the world waits for us to spin it...so when I get back, I want to see myself holding office of this new nation of CRANK mob. That's all.

Severely Yours,

CRANK MOB was, hands down, the best ride I've been on. When we took over Venice Circle it was like the end of the world. People were jumping on the metal plates and it was like there was a big giant bike dragon chomping on the world. The dancing was awesome - I think we finally had enough dancers that it reached a critical mass and was super epic. The tarp helped keep us from drowning in a FUNDERSTORM. Epic epic epic epic.

Next time we should go into the room under the venice circle... we had the door open and were banging on it, but no one went in, a couple people shined lights down, but no one went down... someone needs to investigate... it's not locked.

it's tough calling out a fellow rider for his douche-baggery, especially when said rider and his homeboys outnumber you. i did not witness the spitting on cars and knocking over of bikes that was previously mentioned. but, i did witness some ill-mannered behaviour at the windward circle and the ralphs by some dude on a bmx bike. he was a little scrawny guy with a moustache and/or thin goatee. he wore gray shorts that were almost long enough to be pants, and rode a gray bmx bike with an iron cross on the front. i saw him smash his beer can and throw it in the middle of windward followed shortly by his empty cigarette pack. later, at ralph's i hear something being broken and looked over to see the same dude smashing something red and plastic. that sort of anger/destruction/hate has no place in crankmob. i saw another dude proudly displaying the cake he had stolen from ralph's. i don't know what we can do to curb this behaviour, but it certainly is harmful to crankmob. for the most part crankmob is super-cool. but, as with any random gathering of people, i suppose a certain percentage of bad seeds is to be expected. bummer.
