EL Hefe's Bike

These are crappy pics but the bike is a cannondale rush Carbon with Lefty
and XTR and pretty much everything the best possible.

And it looks like he rides the crap out of it

Tires are worn and sprockets are worn some scratches

And one of the (very large) Secret Service rides a caffeine 29er (the largest mountain bike I have ever seen) The seatpost was about chest height! (Im 5'10)

Imagine the Infamous Black Suburban with a bike rack!

That's surprising considering Trek donated about $30k (or was it 50) of biking equipment to Bush, including a MTB.

He and Mtnbiker66 go way back. Once Mtnbiker66 got them, 'W' had to have them.

While I can't stand the dude, it would be neat to go riding with him and the SS.

Anyone consider the possibility that Mr. Prez has more than one bike? It's not that unheard of.

W has 2 Treks. One worth $2,700 and one worth $5,500. He got the '07 Cannondale before it was shipped to stores. That's what happens when you are in charge.

Were those eggbeater's on the Cannondale? They looked like the Candy's.

(candys) I believe so.

The SS people were really cool about me taking pics and checking it out.

He also had a spare set of wheels (the same make and tires In case he Taco's one?)

And pedals Japanese drivetrain!

Revolution Cycles here in the DC area tunes his bikes. Very cool.

Now let's start a huge political debate and get this thread closed by the mods. I'll go first- SRAM sucks and John Kerry rides a Wal-Mart bike!

How about this classic quote from Presidential hopeful John Edwards:

"The biggest problem is my butt hurts. Is that normal?"
