Nice pic!

What I want to know (besides the banking angle) is what Ted's front rim is. All the other rims in the pics are shiny, but Ted's front is dull. Why? Also his hubs seem different from the standard large flange hubs that can be seen on the other bikes. Are they something special?

And lastly, how'd Ted come to need the bandage on the inside of his left thigh?
