I'm like 1% sad the American President is not riding a Shinola Bixby (with a Selle Anatomica saddle), but hey! He's on a bike and grinning -

not sure what that's supposed to mean, are you advocating for an extremely active moderation team that cracks down on everything? I wish people could control themselves from using this thread as a political Rorschach test, and it's somewhat unremarkable to see Biden on a bike. Press must have been bored.

This forum is viewed by people around the world. The pettiness in criticizing how Biden is riding his bike or what equipment he has makes Americans look silly (I could have used a stronger word). I'm just glad to see a political figure like Biden riding a bike. If more politicians rode bikes maybe we would get a better and safer biking infrastructure like in parts of Europe.

Biden rides a Peloton bike everyday.
He has Alway been a fitness person. Good for him the job is stressful.

Then why make the post in the first place other than politics? Why was the photo taken with the rider and his **** eating grin other than politics? This whole thread is based on supporting a construct which is the current President of the USA and to think because of this photo the US will recieve enhanced cycling infrastructure is infantile. John Kerry on the other hand is a cyclist.

I'm from around the world and I don't see this as petty criticism. It's more of a hyper focused group almost laughing at themselves for their preoccupation with gear, when someone well-known but a little more casually interested gets involved in the activity. It's all in good fun. I would kinda like to have a couple of ATVs full of MANPADS and heavy firepower following me around for my bike rides as well.

I don't much care for either Sleepy Joe or Dubya but I would probably much rather ride with Dubya, apparently he is a pretty good rider, not technical but fast AF and has some nice riding trails at his ranch. Biden is running on a crappy old Trek hybrid from the early to mid 2000s barely able to buckle the helmet. He looks like someone who would be riding all over the bike path causing problems with with everyone nearly running into people. Booooooorrring.

That's only because he heard someone refer to it as a bidon, and it spooked him.

Good grief. The things that some people read into a silly bf post.

Some of you need to stop shaking your fists at the sky and ride your bikes more.

Well, it seems the repeated use of "Sleepy Joe" is OK so I'll post what crossed my mind. Can you imagine "Deranged Don" trying to get his haunch over a bike?

The last president has stated that he will never ride a bike.

You donít get much lower cycling cred than that.
