    LOL! I was suprised that I got a 70 actually. The questions I couldn't answer were about cones. I know nothing about cones.

    I passed, 20/20, with certification #BT496-1562313-100. However, for quick release wheels, there actually was NO correct response option for question #11 -- correct bearing cone adjustment requires a small amount of free play, which then disappears when the QR skewer is clamped.

    I particularly liked the part about breaking off the little knob to inflate a tube through a Presta valve. It reminds me of people who folded 5-1/4" floppy disks to fit them into 3-1/2" drives.

    *sigh* I passed! 85%. I thought for sure I would fail since I only do the simple mechanical work on my bikes. I guess what I think is simple actually isn't that simple!

    I got 95%.

    Of course, I got the paint question wrong because I answered that it is often (or can be, or might be, or whatever they said) hard to find replacement decals. I've been having a hard time finding replacement decals, but maybe that's just me.

    Anyway, I think I deserve 100%, but I'm not going to sulk about it.

    Well, not too much, anyway.

    85% -- I passed. I'm a little annoyed that i got some of those questions wrong, though... especially when I knew I was getting them wrong while I answered them.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    BT496-2658871-95

    I am so humiliated. I actually missed one! I knew the right answer, just misunderstood the question. Won't say which one. No clues to those who haven't taken it yet.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    I got them all right, but admittedly I got lucky on a few of them. Certification no. BT496-2537834-100. Can I get a night job with these credentials?

    Fubar, hang your head in shame; I just started cycling in October, and even I got a 90% score!

    I missed the "what is this tool" (never used it), and the one on the removal of the cotterless crank (I was kind of hoping there'd be a "remove the cotter pin" answer for the criminally stupid).
