Missing:
Rolled-up jeans
Cycling cap
Slip-on Vans
Full-sleeve and thigh-chainring tattoos
Nitto track drop stem plus riser handlebars with Oury grips
Aerospoke/HED3/Spin/Spinergy front wheels (or at least Deep Vs laced to Phils) with colorful tires
Beer (That's a wine bottle in the bucket near the front wheels)

I don't know, that guy may be the real deal.
