Last I'm going to say anything in this subject but age is not an excuse for misogyny. There are never any excuses for it. Only reasons behind them.

Euan, I think you need a different word to describe Sagan's shirt. Perhaps childish, or adolescent, but misogyny is way over the top.

Any idea why 3 GPS units?
Also what's with the mirrors?

Maybe tailing three riders, each GPS is paired with a powermeter or other data?
Not sure about mirror placement, it may be for the scooter rider's comfort?

Sagan probably picked up that shirt when he came to So Cal.

He maybe thought it was funny and decided to get it. Maybe another rider got it for him thinking it would be a funny pic. I can't tell you how many tourists I see with those "types" of shirts walking around LA. Believe me...I can tell they are tourists. :D

People are thinking too far into it.

I wonder if 25mm tires is already the new standard for classics and training. I'm gonna swtich to 25 myself when my current 23 tires are finished.

IIRC, 60-70 percent of the peloton rode 25s at the last Giro. I've been a huge fan of 25s for a while now. I've always felt a 25 rear and 23 front was a great combination. However, with newer wide rims, you can still get a great profile on 23s.
