Update: We have a winner! The answer I was looking for is backwards fork (or headset). The others were good answers too, but ‘scnottin’ is the winner. I’ve sent an email asking for his address.
Respond either here in a comment or as a reply to me on Twitter. Be the first to tell me what’s wrong with this photo of Kathy Ireland on a bicycle and win the prize, my slightly used copy of David Byrne’s Bicycle Diaries.
I’m the judge on what constitutes a correct answer, and decisions are final. Hint on the correct answer: It has nothing to do with how Kathy is positioned on the bike or how she’s dressed. I have something else in mind, so look closely!
Brake levers are to high.
it looks like she's biking through the ocean…
If I had to guess, I'd say the fork looks as though it's turned backwards. It appears to curve back to the frame.
Rear brake is screwed
Here's the winner! Backwards fork is the answer I'm looking for.
stem isn't attached to bike
Fork looks like it's going backwards, seat is WAY back for the seat tube position and (worst) the steam is a million miles up from the fork.
Bike, what bike.
The photo was not taken on the move, she is posing quite simply, one can see the water falling perpendicular to the ground and also in that pose boobs are hit with the knee xD
Thanks for playing, all! Stuart N posted the answer I was looking for: The fork or headset is on backwards.
Who cares whats wrong there is so much right!
I disagree that the fork is backwards. That bike is either a Continental, Super Sport or Sports Tourer. The upper part of the fork on all of those bikes is quite straight and parallel to the headtube where it meets the fork crown. I think it is much more likely that the fork is caved in due to a front end collision, something I see all the time on bikes listed for sale on eBay and Craigslist.
For example, my beloved 1971 Sports Tourer:<img src=”http://lh3.ggpht.com/_NFiwN1SY_9s/SwQLo7XTMQI/AAAAAAAABkQ/ig6PtyKYK6c/s400/IMGP0993.JPG” />
Actually, it can't be a Super Sport or Sports Tourer, because it has the large, oval headbadge. Continental it is. Same fork as my bike, though.
Aint nothin wrong with this picture.
