Nope, I just set the camera on the ground.
Sometimes using the aid of a twig or pebble.

The hardest shot was the backbend
That left a mark.........

I had jesse bags on my old bike and loved them.

So in my 36 years of life, I've beat down the live and learn path the hard way and now would like to hear from you as to what works on these bikes accessory-wise and what doesn't.
I realize it's a lot of opinion, but tried and true is just that.........
Thanks in advance!!





CHEERS!!!!
Hey look, a clean bike...

Geesh! I consider an all cleaned up , polished bike = Drive way jewelry.

I always shake my head when I see that add in one of the bike rags. The lady waiting on this guy to finish washing his ride so they can go riding. I'd be, like, GONE.

Different strokes for different folks. Either way, I see at least 10k on the bike which means it does get ridden--and there's pretty pictures to boot

Who cares if it's clean or dirty?

Don't you find your bike likes to be used but cleaned ever once in a while too? It seems to run and feel smoother after a good bath and polish. It does not have to be every week but once a quarter. Plus when cleaning your bike you are able to see any issues or things that might need some TLC (maintenance).

My bike gets serviced VERY regularly.
And when I'm super busy, I don't care if it's clean or dirty. Like my helmet, I don't see the dirt while I'm riding!

LET'S MOVE ON!!!
