Just the thing for that extra accessory on your bike.

Need to carry that extra little bit of protection on your favorite C&V bike? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_1253wt_966

I recently bought a headbadge from that seller. I should've looked around at his other auctions.

As for carrying a pistol while riding, well ... I never thought of that. I guess it might come in handy in some parts of the world. Here, I suppose I'll just stay with my short sword.

i was going to post this guy's auctions here a couple days ago, actually.

i have to admit, i kind of want one of those holsters, especially the one with the attached beer coozy. however, i'm worried that my legs would bump into it while pedaling.

My sword is not so short as though I feel the need to compensate by owning a handgun.

I have a friend that was purposely run off the road while on a Cannondale tandem with his wife. Horn honking, laughing, the whole bit. He bought one of those police holsters that go across your back, the pistol sits in plain site. He's not had a problem since.

Just wear the holster and you should get the same results.

I don't tink anyone here is advocating for it's original use but

Carrying firearms used to be much more acceptable then. The Old Sears catalog reprint shows little carbines intended for bicyclists in .22 or velo-dog. (as the name implies it was meant to defend against dogs at a time when rabies was something to consider). In the US the GFSZ act will get you in serious hurt being caught with an improperly carried gun.

Thankfully, I'm pretty far to your left. At least when you're heading south. Speaking of which, this whole thread is heading south pdq.

Riding a bike like that, you have to carry something to make you look more macho.

Integrate one of those foldable Russian military trenching spades with the sharp, serrated cutting edges into a bike to act as a seatpost. With a quick release seatpost clamp, it will make deployment quick and easy. Stop, click, pull, Swish.....CHOP! No more nasty farm dog that angrily chased you everytime you go by!

I'm pretty sure most cyclists don't have the upper body strength to wield such weapons, so I'm assuming this stuff is just for show.

I just think this will look really good on a build I am doing for a 60's french bike. I don't really plan on carrying a gun. but with the ADGA saddle, walnut studios bar wrap, and this I think it is going to turn out to be a very special gas pipe...

You could carry a small white flag in the holster, with "I Surrender" stenciled on it in 6 different languages.

Or maybe a baguette and a cheese knife?
