TOO FRENCH:

A stronger warning to male cyclists (SANDRA BLAKESLEE, 10/11/05, New York Times)

In a bluntly worded editorial with the articles, Dr. Steven Schrader, a reproductive health expert who studies cycling at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, said he believed that it was no longer a question of "whether or not bicycle riding on a saddle causes erectile dysfunction."

Instead, he said in an interview, "the question is, 'What are we going to about it?' "


No wonder they throw like girls.

Somewhere out there, someone's going to make a lot of money creating a bicycle seat with a little give in the front, though I doubt that means John Kerry will be slinging passes like Tom Brady anytime soon.

Lance Armstrong can just sit a little to one side, perhaps?

It's one of the reason I got a recumbent. You can go fast and it doesn't hurt. Not so great up big hills, but it's pretty flat around here.

Finally, conservatives have an excuse for GWB's lack of mojo.

Lance had testicular cancer. Maybe that is why he rides so well.

Well, Rick, he couldf just get one of those exercise machines like Clinton used to ride in the room next to the Oval Office.

There already are a lot of models with soft patches, or even holes, in the front extension. There's even a seat which is just two separate pads to support your pelvic bones.
