Reader’s Rides Jan 21, 2011


This week’s Reader’s Rides submissions were spot on. I introduced you to Thomas earlier this week when he sent me in his logo submission (which is about to become some t-shirts). Along with that email came photos of his drop-dead gorgeous GTB track bike, complete with detail photos! This is the ideal Reader’s Rides submission. Crisp lines, great photos and a beautiful bike.

That’s one nice ride. Let’s keep them coming and remember the basics. If you don’t follow these rules, they won’t get posted:

-Include one drive-side shot: Get down level with your bike and try to capture it all in photograph from the drive-side.

-Include one detail shot: I want to see what makes this bike stand out from the rest! A nice lug shot or maybe a detail component shot would be ideal.

-Resolution: Please! Send me photos at least 800px wide!

-No Crap: Readers want to see beautiful bicycles, not clunkers. No offense to the beautiful beaters of the world!

You can submit the photos via email or post them on the Prolly is not Probably Facebook!
