What did my bike do to deserve this?

The advertising folks at University of Oregon borrowed one of my bikes a few months back. Here's where it just showed up

Look for a dork in sandals and jeans wearing a crappily photoshopped helmet in the lower left on my hot rod

The skinny ass student they stuck on my bike is possibly the only guy on the planet who looks punier than me (photo of me and my highracer in my BF profile photo). In any case, that bike would be unrideable in jeans and sandals. I happen to know they photographed him by leaning him up against a green screen wall.

Shoot, I was expecting to read that your bike came back to you in the shape of a pretzel. You got off well.

It's Oregon though, so you have to factor in for using Centigrade.
