due to traffic had to take detour this morning, and passing by Hill saw a policemen on spanking new police edition Specialized Epic.

Now, I haven't mtb'ed in 2 month and the my full suspension bike haven't seen any action for the whole year, but oh man getting paid to ride around on Epic? the only thing would beat it getting paid to ride around town on Ti Colnago with full Record.

Either way work SUCKS! grrrr
What does the Secret Service Ride these days?jose_Tex_mex

A few years ago when I used to do my loop from the Tyson's area to DC I passed the White House where the Secret Service was riding very nice Trek Y-33's. They were all white and had the emblem right in the middle by the rear shox.

However, it was ironic that the Y-33 I was riding was actually a much better ride - God Bless America - when her citizens have better bikes than those that protect the President.
have no idea probably Trekscyclopathic

back in perhaps 93(?) We built up to Raleghs that were allegedly for Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. I helped the secret service guy load them into the suburban and he confirmed they were for the first family. I never did here about them riding them though.

But not the Y-foil, just the regular aluminium frame models. Some of them have Spinergy Rev-X wheels on them (why they decided they needed these is beyond me).

The DC police are sporting Smith and Wesson bicycles -- I kid you not. Bicycles made for law enforcement. They look a lot like a Trek, painted black with Smith and Wesson decals on them. Probably run $8700 each knowing how frugal the DC govt is.

I remember in high school the campus policeman had a bike. One day my friend and I fixed it for him and he seemed to miss catching us breaking rules after that
