Stay Clean Get Fit

Oh, and this is what it looked like when I bought it:
Sadly, I was inside before I realized I was in the middle chain ring… Don’t let the sunshine fool you, it was cold enough I didn’t care, I wasn’t going back outside.
Tire Stems should be at 6 o’clock…
Cranks should never be level…
What am I ranting?! I never get right either, but hey it’s bike porn… Its purpose is to arouse. 😉
Nice job & nice bike.
Stems are at six (in all of the photos – except that last one where I didn’t know any of the rules when I took the photo, not that that is an excuse). The crank arms are up to interpretation of the rules – the idea is that the back arm, the left side arm, is hidden by the chain stay or the seat tube. As you can clearly see, the crank is just slightly off parallel so that, indeed, the back crank is hidden by the chain stay.
With the exception of the big ring, which I copped to already, my photos are pretty close.
you broke a rule… always in the big ring for pictures just kidding enjoy your ride and also it be clean again when you do your overhauls in the off season
I didn’t even know there were/are rules for photographing bikes. What a rebel! I’m torn on whether I like the red or black. Both are fantastic. What a joy it must be to ride no matter the color!
Thanks Dan… I know what you mean. The bike would have looked awesome, red but I REALLY wanted black so that’s how I went. Just one of those things.
Honestly, doesn’t really matter where any of that shit is, that is one smokin’ black bike!
You’re right, but for the Bike-porn-phile it does matter, and I understand it the consternation. In context, most of it is faux angst. 😉
Thanks for lookin’ out Sandra.
LOL! 🙂 Always.

One of the more shocking discoveries in my recovery occurred when I began listening to Richard Grannon talk about covert narcissists and how to tell…
Some of the better advice I’ve ever given newer folks to recovery is “Don’t compare yourself to others. You don’t know what they have to…
I’m going to put it as simply as I can; my wife and I found each other again, after several years. It’s better than that,…
After riding the tandem with my wife for the last few weeks, I finally threw a leg over my Specialized Venge Wednesday night. The weather…
