I'm insanely picky about my bike. Some people I see nowadays ride some nasty beat up bikes haha!! Not me! Even though I thrash mine on the dirt trails, I clean it after every day I ride! I keep her dialed and adjusted constantly! Just detailed and fine tuned my brakes! Good day! So post up the "clean" and pampered bikes! I want to see if I'm not alone haha

I'm pretty much the same way honestly, i have a clean bike and I prefer to keep it pretty clean. Partially because chrome looks bad dirty and partially because I don't like making my car's trunk all dirty.

I finally finished my parkiest build ever and I'm digging it so I usually keep it pretty shiny and clean.

I always make sure all my parts and stuff are nice and tight and functioning well. I cannot ride a bike thats creaking and rattling and stuff without greasing or tightening whatever is wrong.

I even get that way about my friend's rides. Like when i hear the creak of spokes i offer to tighten them because I don't wanna have to true the wheel so much when it gets real bad.

I like a solid sounding bike and if someone isn't adjusted right i change it immediatly, but i don't freak out about dirt. I just like my bike to work.

I'm OCD to the rooftops when I'm setting up my bike.

If my brakes aren't grabbing right, I'll redo the setup.
If my wheels become misaligned, I seek a wrench immediately.
When there's creaking, I won't ride until I have grease in there.
If my tire PSI feels off, I'll grab a pump without wasting time.
After a bail, I'll spend at least a minute checking over everything.
After every ride, I clean everything.

I'm super picky, more than anyone should be, hah! But that's just the way I am.

I'm the opposite, everything on my bike is dialled and if it isn't I sort it out straight away. But I love the ratty look, I like a bike that looks well used

I was like that at one point but if you ride , it won't stay that way . My wheels are slightly untrue / spokes broken , my chain might be loose and shit but it's part of riding . If you're tightening and adjusting every time your wheel shifts a bit , you'll be spending more time working on it then actually riding

I mostly ride street so my bike never ends up really dirty, but I love the way it looks with all those rust spiders on my frame, it definatly doesn't look like brand new.
Technically speaking my bike is on point if anything got some play like hubs or pedals, I fix it immediately same for a too loose chain because the sound of it hitting the frame is annoying, lucky for me, I run a 28x9 gearing so that doesn't happen often at all, the only thing I let go (sometimes) is if I miss a single spoke, but as soon as I broke a second one I fix it, and of course I keep my wheels straight.

I usually don't spend much time fine-tuning the parts on my bike unless it's brakes. My chains loose, barends are in sideways, my crank bolts ALWAYS loosen up after riding, even if it's only for a half hour and my front hub is wayyyyyy over tightened. But, the next parts I'm gonna be getting and cranks and a new front wheel smile

If it's good enough I'll ride it. Doesn't have to be perfect. I do like my brakes really grabby though
