Take another look at the sentence:

Squeaky with rust, Michael rode his bike to the beach.

Squeaky with rust, a phrase, comes right before Michael, an illogical target. Although Michael might be a poorly maintained robot, it is more logical to assume the bicycle is what's squeaky with rust!

Before you continue, review the rules for misplaced and dangling modifiers.
