    just5 make sure your cranks are 90 degrees past your seat tube

    Up if it’s an XC race bike. You wanna see that stretched out racy bike porn.
    Down if it’s anything else, pretty much. To remind you what bikes are for (smashing down hills off road, in case any of you bike-packing chain-ganging gravel-biking latte-sipping hipster guys forgot).

    Down because my ‘down’ is still higher than most people’s ‘up’.

    Choose a position that you think looks good – and then be judged 😉

    I reckon it depends on the bike. If there was a default it would around the same as the top of the headtube

    Down unless the bike is hanging from something by the nose of the saddle.

    And we’re debating saddle height spoiling aesthetics?

    Hold it, people are saying the same height as bars but how many spacers under your stem? Saddle level with high bars is not the same as saddle level with low bars.

    Dropper post up, cranks level with the floor (drive side forward) and take the picture from the drive side.

    If you are looking for the perfect picture then it should be across the trail without anything holding the bike upright.

    Alternatively just take the photo, who cares?

    Which sprocket should the chain be on?

    ^^^ Neither I’d say. Try it midway, level with the bars. 🤔

    Looks better up on that Giant NRS. But then it’s more of an XC looking frame.

    XC looking bikes look better with the post up in my opinion. So do small frames, unless you buy a frame way too small and need a mile long post just to pedal. That looks daft.
