Thoughts and Suggestions?
I'm pretty new to GIMP. I made this from a photo I took. I was trying to give it a stencil look. I used Threshold to try to achieve this, but I was wondering if anybody knows a better way to recreate a stencil. It seems to me like the lines between black and white need to be more sharp in order for it to look like a stencil, but I'm not sure how to do this. Also, I'd like some critique on anything else you might think needs attention in this piece.

Pretty good as it is IMHO. I would just try to make the rim a bit lighter. On a vintage bike there is no reason for it to be darker than the hub, and dark as it is it gets a bit lost in the tire. You can use a selection to restrict the threshold to a specific area. Given the regular shape, you can create a selection using a path.

Maybe this is a serious noob question, but what does IMHO mean?

Ok, you will need to have the plugin G'MIC installed.
If it is already installed, you should find it under the menu Filters->G'MIC
Once you have it installed...
Open your image in GIMP
Menu Filters->G'MIC
Under 'Black & White' find 'Pencil Portrait'
Then run the that filter with the settings shown below.
The color shown in image is Red-163, Green-162, Blue-162.
   
Then select the resulting G'MIC layer.
Menu Color->Posterize
Posterize Levels 2.

Of course you should adjust setting to suit your taste.
Have fun.
