    @Matt those are feral bikes, in the wild, in the midst of being ridden, Mr. Judgypants. :p

    I don't see riders atop those bikes, they seem to be resting.

    There are other hashtags that can be used in cycling-related photos.

    For instance, this could have been #coffeeshopride or #feedzone but definitely not #BAAW.


    And for the record, I'm not wearing pants.

    @simonsen77 Bronson tires? You must have a death wish.

    Are those decals from Veloink?

    My mom had this sickly cocker spaniel years ago, names Bronson. That's been my primary association with the name ever since.

    Yeah, I think that's where I got the decals. My son saw them online, so we got a batch to make all our bikes match.

    Bikes on the edge of a cliff? I'm sure the wedding nearby appreciated me using their geofilter.

    @idking90

    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers) can't see, assume 0.5
    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.) 2 bottles, a bag AND a computer!??!
    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

    Normally a 7, but -1 for the cheesy filter. Under #BAAW rules, I feel bad giving this a 6/10, but this would be better suited to an #epicride #mtbtrails kind of submission. Great backdrop!

    @Paul Glatzhofer as for you:

    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers) nicely done
    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
    9) Valves at 6 o'clock (pointing up) or hidden between fork/seatstays close enough
    10) Hide skewers these would be hidden if the picture was taken on the drive-side, no deduction

    4/10 but can easily go up to an 8 or 9.

    @Matt go ride for 3 hours of remote singletrack without that gear and let me know how it works out.
    The snapchat filter for a wedding is literally the ONLY reason I submitted this photo. I've taken far better photos of my bike, trust me.
    Plus, "the rules" don't apply the same way to MTBs

    It wasn't a dig at your gearing; just that you could have put it in the small cog for the photo.

    MTB has no rules. Bunch of heathens.

    Wood panels in the kitchen? Sell the bike and remodel.

    . I live in an old farm house and I'm single usually... therefore I spend way more money on my bikes than home decor

    1) Clean the bike

    Pre-ride this would have been a 9/10, assuming your tire logos + tube valves are aligned.

    Looks too warm for Cross. Not enough mud!

    Half walls are OK in Mexico, but it's the 20ft ones that will cause issues.

    1) Clean the bike 0.5 because that bar tape needs replacing.
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves (for clinchers) YES
    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
    9) Valves at 6 o'clock (pointing up) or hidden between fork/seatstays Nice
    10) Hide skewers

    7.5/10 but 8.5 if you fix the cranks, 9 for new bar tape.

    Thanks @Matt. (The bar tape was good before the race. Probably pulled it off wiping my hands off in the heat).

    Also, after 5 minutes of adjusting the pedal against the wall, then the skewer then the crank arm, then the bike slipped, rinse and repeat, figured I'd live with it.
