    Okay @Matt I'm petitioning for a recount. Far too many non-BAAW photos have been allowed at this point.

    Don't let your new title go to your head, remember who gave you the first one. Valves were at 6.

    Couldn't find a good wall, so I got a picture next to the bobbum van.

    @Matt this one.

    Fine....

    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers)
    3) Flat saddle
    4) Slam stem (flat or negative rise only)
    5) Remove saddle bag, bottles, computer (but ok to keep the cages, computer holder, etc.)
    6) Chain in the big ring + smallest cog 0.5
    7) Drive-side only
    8) Drive-side crank either at 3 o'clock (horizontal) or in line with your chainstay
    9) Valves at 6 o'clock (pointing up) or hidden between fork/seatstays
    10) Hide skewers

    6.5/10 (Ignoring the since a Van != Wall, it's a road bike, not a TT so the clip-ons are a -1, but +1 for the TRS Cock)

    That reminds me, I need more than a Felt Cock, I need my Cock to FLO, too. Thanks KOABP!

    Agreed with @Matt that the title is BAAW and not BAARV (bikes against a rape van). So, technically out of compliance from the outset.

    I love that movie, @Tad_Machrowicz!

    Found a proper wall -





    After riding 56 miles, I was feeling plenty handicapped.

    Have at it @Matt . Not the great wall of @KenElPescadoPelado (my vote for Most Outstanding Wall), but a real wall nonetheless. I'll align the tire logos after the winter carbide studs go on in 2 months. Note the TRS coordinated Red and Black bottle holders. They are upstaged by the red and black matching zipties holding the rear fender lower in place since the frame boss broke.

    @KenElPescadoPelado

    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers) 0.5 for rear tire
    3) Flat saddle
    4) Slam stem (flat or negative rise only)
    5) Remove saddle bag, bottles, computer (but ok to keep the cages, computer holder, etc.)
    6) Chain in the big ring + smallest cog
    7) Drive-side only
    8) Drive-side crank either at 3 o'clock (horizontal) or in line with your chainstay Not your seat tube...
    9) Valves at 6 o'clock (pointing up) or hidden between fork/seatstays 0.5 for rear tire.
    10) Hide skewers 0.5 Front is visible.

    7.5/10 not bad! (I'd take points off for the clip-on bars, the TRS and RWB compensate. Also you've clearly parked in your designated area, so it's fine....)

    @Tad_Machrowicz
    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers) 0.25 for the rear tire
    3) Flat saddle
    4) Slam stem (flat or negative rise only) Did the shop not have the bike in your size?
    5) Remove saddle bag, bottles, computer (but ok to keep the cages, computer holder, etc.)
    6) Chain in the big ring + smallest cog
    7) Drive-side only
    8) Drive-side crank either at 3 o'clock (horizontal) or in line with your chainstay
    9) Valves at 6 o'clock (pointing up) or hidden between fork/seatstays
    10) Hide skewers

    7.75, but -0.25 for that bar tape + stem combo. Match it to the red bottle cage.
    7.5/10

    Thanks @Matt ; I think red bar tape will be the next addition. One question, I picked aligned with the chainstay rather than 3:00 for the drive side crank. Did I not do it right?

    @KenElPescadoPelado , Used, white/black/gray speckled bar tape - cheap. Make an offer!
    I ride smoking a pipe, and wearing a corduroy jacket with elbow patches. It all works with the fenders. Seriously, I ride gravel and dirt/dust roads exclusively. Without fenders, my time would be consumed by post ride maintenance and cleaning, else my parts would be destroyed in one season. Oh well. I enjoy these roads with beautiful views and very few cars ....

    @Tad_Machrowicz drive-side must face forward. No one cares about the side against the wall.

    @Matt, I understand now. The "aligned with chainstay" means forward, in line with chainstay.
    Got it. Never again with this mistake!

    @ItsShug , that green schwinn has a nick in the bar tape.....

    Saw lots of Argon 18 bikes at IM Copenhagen. Haven't seen many at US races. Is Europe a bigger market for you?
