Today I came across unpleasant free range Dogs. They did not like Bear Spray. Just a tiny splash and they were done chasing me. I would hope it dissuades them from chasing Bikes at all.

For who, you? I wind mine up to 42 on flat ground. Cadence is around 165 on a 48-18 set-up with 26 inch wheels. I like chasing UPS Trucks near my house. Fun for me….
