Bike identification

Hi, I am trying to get a bike identified but I can't post any pictures before my 10th post.

Any suggestions?

Besides pics, you can describe what kind of bike it is and any names, numbers, etc. You can give the names of the components. Many bike have some sort of "Made In... sticker"

You just have to be descriptive, like: "I've got this blue road bike with drop bars and the components appear to be Shimano or whatever. The name on the rear derailleur is < > and the name on the crank is < > , and so on. And, it has a head badge with a lion creature..." See? Once you get started and people start replying and you start interacting, you'll have way more than 10 posts in no time. That's how it works.
