    fortunately "in my neck of the wood" there are very few mean dogs...most of em are friendly and are still in a fence or chained up.

    A metal pump? what about it? smack the dog over the head with it? I'm assuming you're saying that THAT particular pump wouldn't explode into 20 pieces upon meeting with a canine's cranial area.

    funny story last sunday i was lost in the woods and finally found a road.after all the pedaling up hills i did the roads started going downhill. flying down the hill i al,ost hit a amish buggy the damn thing came from the very side of the road out into the middle ALL THE SUDDDEN it pissed me off so i "yelled my horse is faster and it dosent pollute the road with sh*t!! " refering to my diamondback....then like 20 min later a german shepard ran right out infront of me when i was going downhill and i had to lock up my disc brakes i powerslided my way around him and continued pedaling barking back.

    i was never attacked just chased for a lil...i have a habit of barking at the dogs it dosent do anything except help find humor in the situation. maby dogs in other states will fear a barking human and stay away...might as well try it

    I'm guessing you're from PA given the Amish comments? That IS rather amusing that dude in a horse-drawn buggy pulling out is just as bad as a soccer mom in her SUV for not paying attention.

    Very odd but it worked, and back then I don't think you could buy pepper spray in the uk

    lemon juice in a squirt *** is plenty in most cases. Plus if your thirsty, you can carry some sugar packets and make lemonade

    With pepper sprays, isn't there a high risk of it blowing back at you?

    An air horn will usually stop most dogs. The horn can be recharged with a bike pump and the "air tank"
    slides into a water bottle holder.

    Which kind do you recommend? Is it heavy? Comes with a handlebar mount? I'd love to use this on some motorists! Also, is it as loud as the air horns that you can buy in the boat shops (they are about the size of a pepper spray can too)?

    ps. once, I was attacked by a pack of 5 dogs on a dirt road in rural Mexico (which means they're probably not vaccinated or whatever). A liberal sweep with the regular pepper spray the mailman carries stopped them all instantly. Only problem: after using it two more times, my cannister was dead! So I carried a machete
