Fun with bicycle stock photos

I found this stock royalty-free image from Getty Images. What’s wrong with this picture?

Google knows of only a single instance of this photo in use online, where they cleverly cropped out the bottom half of this image.

Pro tip: If you’re going to use a photo of a bike in your creative, be aware some manipulations are glaringly obvious.

    Are the cranks on the left side of the bike while the chain, derailler, and cogs are on the right side of the bike? Regardless, the cranks are on the left side of the bike.

    Where to begin? Helmet visor. Sunglasses under helmet straps. Photo is flipped, as drive side is on the left, instead of the right.
