    noticed a couple of hybrids at a football game on tv

    I was watching the Packers vs. Bills and noticed 2 Trek hybrids on the left side of the end zone. They had rear racks and trunks. Question is, who did they belong too? Security?

    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

    possibly, especially sincemost security guards get little training on their jobs let alone how to perform security from a bike

    No, but it will re-air tonight. I'll pause the tv and check. They looked like pretty good bikes.

    That kinda looks like them, except I don't think they had suspension forks. I was unable to view the game. NFL Network was re-airing a bunch of games. I wonder if the trunk(s) had indication that if they were 'police' or 'paramedic'. I couldn't see it from the side view. I know Jandd makes those bags.

    Paramedics carry a large amount of material with them on the job, so I can easily see that this may be what you saw. Aside from their utility-belts, what would a cop be carrying? An inflatable jail-cell?

    Do keep us posted.
