    Totally wrong. The green of your frame and that of your seat bag simply do not sync. Why do you have a water bottle cage and no bottle, take it off. Not to mention you seem to be missing the front half of your bike if that pic says anything. Finally, get rid of that kickstand. The bike seems to balance upright just fine on its own, you don't need it. Also, that floor looks really uncomfortable for your tires.

    But seriously, nothing wrong with a stand on a commuter. If it's a racer or messenger then maybe it should go.
    No fuss with the MUSS

    I would say run a triple. Are you trying to bag on a friend or looking for something more to add to what looks like a clean bike.

    Yes, water bottle cages should always have water bottles.

    Talking about the kickstand. I tried it on and almost immediately took it off. It worked great, but looks bulky and takes away from the cleanness of the bike. And how much do I really need it for casual rides?? I can't escape the usefulness - but aesthetics wins out this round.

    Too many gears. Yes, remove the offending extras, you don't need that extra weight.

    If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.

    EPMS ... Really ? It's a saddle bag for Christ's sake ! I'm no conformist. I even ride platform pedals and sans helmet at times. I should definitely be shot; or at least ridiculed and beaten.

    If you ride without a helmet, no one will have to shoot you. Someone will beat you with a blunt object in some stupid argument over whether you should or shouldn't wear a helmet and you'll only lose because your opponent will have a helmet.
