where did the 'golden bear riding a bicycle' drawing come
from as seen in the photo taken of President Bush II. The
drawing is on the wall behind a seated Bush as an aide gives
Bush news of World Trade Center Terrorism during a Bush
grade school appearance.

Rodale has the Bush photo in Rodale's mail promo for a 911
coffee table book.

We now have the final and definitive word on the disc brake
wheel ejection issue.

Dear Peter,

I couldn't help myself and clicked on the larger image.

I note with approval that the bear is riding on
appropriately sturdy 48+ spoke wheels.

On the other hand, there seems to be no chainstay, and the
poor bear is pulling an awfully high gear on a single-speed.

Thanks,

Carl Fogel

Dear Carl,

The lack of chainstays makes the frame "stiff, yet
compliant."

Should not the bear and the passengers be wearing h*lm*ts?

Dear Tom,

Actually, as I understand it, the headgear of circus
bears riding bicycles consists of muzzles, their safety
taking second place to that of the audience.

It would be beneath me to point out that bears can
be trained to ride uprights, but not recumbents.

Dear Carl,

That is proof that recumbent riders are smarter than your
average bear.

Dear Tom,

Uh, Yogi, I think the ranger was gonna ride
that recumbent before you treated it like a
pic-i-nic basket.

Could it be that bears are TOO smart to ride 'bents? ;-)

Hi, Carl:

Notice that the bear is smiling. He just switched to shorter
cranks, and he can tell the difference.

Dear Nicholas,

Hmm . . . but shorter cranks would make his
effective gearing even higher. Of course,
he could be a high-speed bear.

Or he might be smiling because he ate his
trainer [pun] and is now free to pedal
wherever he pleases.

However, the rear wheel is radially laced.....

Dear Alan,

A straight-laced but happy bear (dare I say radiant?)
is preferable to a cross-laced bear.

This goes for tigers, too.
