the technique used by magazines is to hold the rear wheel , and let it go a few seconds ( enough to take a pic ) and then catch it again .

I think this is shopped. You can see a vague lighter edge around the front wheel and spokes.

That's your eyes playing tricks on you, I've zoomed right in with CTRL+ and don't see any obvious P-shop artifacts. Either a drop and snap, or didn't any of you ever play the bike-balancing game? Most (light) bikes will stand on their own-two wheels, esp. on a gravelly surface (calm wind-free days help too.

If I didn't say this somewhere before - I love that bike Shamus!

Did you really switch the brakes Shamus? The front still looks shorter than the rear...

I see them too, a tad too much unsharp mask perhaps. There are more all around the frame too, both lighter and darker edges.

Is that a little piece of mirror propping up the bike? That way it would reflect the gravel underneath and effectively disappear from the side view. :?:

EDIT: Just saw the post above - Photoshop it is. And I though I was so clever...... :lol:
