Probably had fun doing it which makes it even better

It probably the most common and easy way to do it if you're not alone for the shot. Or if you always bring a tripod and a smatphone with timer during your rides in case of emergency (nice background, cool colors). Timer remote is a plus.

Exactly, with upper chain line horizontal to. You did well for the chain line though. :beerchug:
