    @Matt pretty sure that's a different kind of thread, no?

    Maybe @Matt wanted everyone to read the post about how to photograph your bike, which you have nailed. Those cranks perfectly at 3 & 9, with the drivetrain visible...

    Cool mural.

    The Basics
    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
    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

    7/10

    @Evan - I totally agree with comfort > stem, but you can easily get up to a 90% with just 2 simple tricks ;)

    #Sworry for the clickbait-y response.

    Here is Sexy RXC in the wild. No murals on the farm, no vans, or beaches, either.
