    I think going for a ride with your kid on a trail-a-bike is also pretty awesome.
    But hey, I guess it's all about appearances.

    it is pretty awesome...

    but if toy can't see the disparity in the two above photos...and the subsequent analogy regarding the two leaders of the free world...I can't help you.

    yeah Apollos...
    & ol' bushy boy looked purty awsum when he landed on an aircraft carrier in a flight suit & proclaimed mission over...
    didn't he?
    you couldn't just post a very nice shot of bush with a hero without throwing in a dig against obama could you?

    Word from the guys @ Cape Able (LBS) in K-port, is that "W" is in shape, and fast on the single-track, and his S/S team kept getting dropped.

    The only bad thing about Bin Laden gettting his head blown off it that we'll never get to see if Bush would beat him in a camel vs mtn bike race.

    Thee Obama pic is a perfect metaphor if you visualize us as the vulnerable child riding the trail-a-bike while he spins in the granny with a flat tire on smoker's lungs .. At least bush had the humility to exploit the knowledge of the LBS ( both literally and metaphorically )

    I just noticed the dude in the first picture is missing a leg. But, I immediately noticed the flat tire and granny ring on the Trek. Huh...

    George let me down as a mountain biker. He didn't promote bikes in wilderness where horses are allowed. The horse lobby has $$$, why it won't happen.

    Bush = meat head. Gives new meaning to the term figure head. The fact that he got elected once is stupid, the fact that he got re-elected makes us all look stupid.
    Could care less about who's a better mtber or who has a better bike. The fact that Obama would take his kids out for a fun ride and bush tried to take away his own daughters rights speaks volumes about character.
    Makes me laugh that some folks that might have a better bike or mtb skills would make fun of arguably the most powerful man in the world but whatever. If it makes you feel better about yourself, do what you have to.

    As a just regular guy GWB was a pretty cool dude, MTBer, college rugby player and party animal. I can relate, since I was also a college rugby player and MTBer.

    This thread would have been full of win if you would have left that second pic out.

    It's a whole lot more complicated than that and that rule has been around for a long time
    I agree with that rule. Do I let you down as a MTBer?

    Thats what they get for riding single speeds...

    An acquaintance of mine rode MTBs with him while he was prez, said he tried hard and was in decent shape for his age, but wasn't anything notable really.

    Looks like the same tire the other dude has on his bike. But no, I have no idea what it is.

    IMO, I think it's a good thing to see any politician on a bicycle of any kind. I don't really care whether the guy rides a mtn bike (Bush), a road bike (Kerry), or a hybrid with a trail-a-bike (Obama). All of them are good for biking in one way or another if they spend enough time on the bike to understand the issues that cyclists deal with every day regarding access and safety.

    As of yet, though, I haven't heard of any of them doing anything really important for cycling aside from being seen and photographed on bicycles. Bush has certainly been subject of more photos that I've seen and that's at least showing some people that mountain biking is not such the fringe activity that some people seem to think it is. I'd just be a lot happier to see the politicians on bicycles if they actually did more to promote them and their use.

    In fairness to Obama

    He does look dorky on a bike but I'd hate to go one-on-one hoops with him.

    No, W is a Texan. The Bush family has had a summer home in ME for many years, and when there, the secret service (S/S) are ever present.

    Politics aside, W is a big mt biking advocate, who has made inroads to gain bike access to national parks.

    Yea, a 2-term President really sucked at politics. Made it to the highest level and as far as possible in that career path. Thats like saying, yea we won the Superbowl but we suck.

    he was born in Connecticut, went to private high school in Massachusetts, went to Yale (Connecticut) & Harvard Business (Massachusetts).

    as a texan (born, raised & reside) i'd just like to point that out.

    Yeah... I won't say Bush Jr. was great president, but I do support some of his view, and I'm pretty impressed that he's an accomplished rider too

    Although I did vote Obama in 2008... I haven't been to impressed with him thus far...

    It's more like you got to be qb on the team headed to the superbowl because your dad was Peyton Manning, or the likes, and then not only lost the game but screwed up the whole sport.

    I'm not trying to jump into this politics/racism debate, but it's pretty darn cool seeing the current/ex president riding bikes.

    George W seems to hold his own on the MTB - good for him.

    Yes, and I highly doubt that they have ANY of the connections and influence that W does to promote mountain biking, and that IS the big deal.

    Hey, just for just a moment - faack the politics, and view the big picture.
    W is someone who has helped, and can break the ban of trail biking on federal lands.
    By supporting his efforts, progress can be made, closures can be avoided, and increased trail access can become a reality. Overall,as a mtb-er isn't this more important than the unchangeable past?

    LOL , u think Bush screwed things up compared to now? Well I guess he did give us Barry and things couldnt be more screwed up now. Bush spent to much money but Barry has spent more $ in 2 years than all 43 presidents before him combined! Go on lov'n Barry but your kids are gona hate both of you when they are paying 80% of every dime they make on our debt.
