    There should be points deducted for all of your horrible photography.

    Definitely no Tommy Zaferes's around here. And by that I mean putting your goddamn name & Twitter handle all over every fucking picture.

    @Matt not enough seat tube. Go down a size and run a 150mm stem.
    Edit: or be taller. But do not raise the handlebars when you get taller. There's just not enough drop from saddle to bars.

    @Matt This was the first bike that got me into Tris, a craiglist find that was close enough. Rode it for a couple years, even placed, and have PR6 waiting for me after this deployment. Attached the only shot I could find of me on it. This was before I knew that arm warmers and tri tops were no go combo.

    Consensus?

    how has no one done this yet?!!?

    @Matt

    1) Clean the bike
    2) Install/Align tire logos and tube valves
    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
    10) Hide skewers as noted, your front skewer is peaking out like @AaronWebstey underneath @trs_tri 's bed

    9.5/10 - deductions for front skewer showing (when you're king, perfection is the expectation) and 0.25 deduction for possibly the most boring wall we've seen on this thread

    @Matt - When zoomed in:
    - You can see a hint of front skewer;
    - Your chain could use a better wipe down;
    - Is that a chrome bar-end plug?

    If you were being honest, this is only a 9.75. But on a positive note, I guess this means you are riding again?

    #sworry about the front skewer.
    immediate post-ride, gave it a quick wipe-down but that entire drivetrain should be sparkling.
    Shiny metallic silvery plug, not chrome. But same effect.
    Actually, I just borrowed this for the weekend. It's a testing rig from R&D (note the new Mavix CXR foam-core wheels)

    Also, and it might just be my OCD, but the tire/wheel logos are misaligned just enough to be bothersome and distracting.

    @rangamel you win the thread with this. I've read some articles about this wall. This is also the wall that had the nude Hillary on it isn't it?

    It played no factor in the judgement.
    The bike would have had the same score against any wall.

    Thats fine, i vote we move just a picture to a Wall thread where we vote and judge on the artistic values of the wall.

    Depending on which side of the wall of course
    scored with USD on one side, and USD with a 35% tariff on the other.

    Definitely resubmit once you've installed the new front end (and change the bottle cage)

    9.25/10 until further notice

    The wheel decals and the frame decals match up really well.
