Anyone got a picture of someone riding a barrel? I'd like to commute on a barrel sometime but the bikelanes need to be wider.
Would I need a special lock for my barrel? What would you recommend?
You should take the lane with your barrel.
Recumbents: Lightning Thunderbolt, '06 Catrike Pocket. Upright: Trek Mountain Bike.
8.5 mile commute. I like bike lanes.
Drivers will react better if you ride a beer keg than a barrel.

Make sure it is a yellow barrel. But watch out for r600durace unless you have a watt meter that goes over 400. Juggling raises your visibility too I understand, especially if they are chainsaws.
I was biking the backroads,
lost in the moment.
Maintain the steely eyed alpha dog stare as displayed in the picture. I'm sure the BSer in the picture is real impressed.Originally Posted by SamHouston

Silly rabbit, everyone knows that barrels are for racing, not riding, though you can also use em to travel down nice waterfalls like Niagra too. As far as a lock, a barrel lock seems to fit the bill. Any other questions or concerns, make em snappy, I bill by the minute.

I want to join the OCP club, where can I get a carbon fibre barrel?.....and did anyone else get a glorious roll on their barrel in some metropolitan area today?
You know the old BS cager excuse that cyclists don't buy gas so shouldn't be on the road. Strap a couple of gas cans to your pannier rack and blow that one out of the water. So what if you put the gas in the weedeater, why should they care?
BTW, love those keggerbikes. Too cool!
Rodeo clowns have the most fun, barrels AND face paint.
How 'bout a glorious roll in the hay, does that count?Originally Posted by Cyclaholic
Then you have your old BAR STOOL RACER.
Or you could ride this barrel but judging from the barrel's expression it probaly got rode last night.
