My guess as well - you can see that it's dirty, and there are scuff marks on the paint. They probably just asked around, and somebody ran out to the employee bike rack and grabbed it.

Thunder Road with Robert Mitchum. Big souped up Ford V-8, and they used what sounded like an in line six banger with a cheapo glass pack. And both of his cars sounded axactly alike! Pretty funny. I picked up on that one when I was ten, or so years old!!

Uh, a guy I work with will be doing a triathlon this coming Weekend and using an MTB for the bike portion because it will be... wait for it.. off road.

It's not like it doesn't happen from time to time.

I think I have it figured out. This southern hemisphere bicycle being photographed in the northern hemisphere will want to assume it's natural position which is upside down when on this side of the equator.
