So I tried to incorporate different suggestions I got from the previous post.. getting lower, isolating parts of the bike, shoot chain side, plainer background, different mode on the camera.. Here are the results:

I didn't read through your other post, but my suggestion would be to get the bike in front of a natural background and be careful about shooting angles and reflections/highlights​. In other words, take it outside and incorporate grass, curbs, asphalt, etc. to give the shots some context. As it is now, the interior wall and hardwood floor just don't fit the subject. If you just can't (or don't want to) get outdoors, then I would try to take more close-up shots and fill the frame with the bike components and less of the background. Just my humble opinion.

Regardless, very nice bike. I had a Cannondale road bike for awhile until I swapped it out for a new Trek mountain bike....Now you have me thinking about taking some shots of the Trek :-)

I like image 3 the most and agree with what Mannett21 said.
Maybe try an all black background might look cool!
