What's wrong with this picture?

Find the 8 things that are off. Look carefully some may be harder than others.

Reference:



Find what's wrong:



First person to find all 8 gets to put up the next one.

Your left brake is off
Your right brake is off
Your front der is off
Your rear der is off
Your shifters are off
Half your dang tape is off
Your saddle to bar is waayyyy off
Your braze ons are off

And for bonus points:
Your reflectors are off.

I dare you to tell me I'm incorrect.

Now what do I win?

DING DING DING!!!!!

There were really just 8 thing, but you got all of them. As a side note, the thing that the barrel sits on is lighter because it says something in tiny letters on the brick (homebrew by foo)

So congrats, you get to do the next pic!
