More Bush biking

Wow. The New York Times has dropped any pretense of objectivity in this article on the bicycling habits of Bush and Kerry that's mostly just a "Bush is really studly on his mountain bike and Kerry's one of those Spandextm wearing road bike weanies" piece, and that uses the Drudge Report as a source for Kerry quotes. That's really freakin' sad.

I wonder if this is not an instance of the reader seeing what they want. The NYT is well known for not[Wiki] being objective, in fact. Here they seem to simply state facts and that is seen as biased?

I also wonder about bicycles with names like 'Fuel' - seems backwards it does.

I was wondering if a bicycle with a gyroscope, which got its motion from the peddleing, would keep the bicycle upright without a kick stand? And if said gyroscope had a mechanism to 'tilt' it, would allow for easier/more responsive turning?
