I have also, in the past, carried rocks when I know there's a bike-chaser on my route. This has also worked well, especially when I've used the handful of small rocks shotgun approach.For many dogs, you don't even need to have a real rock. A friend that toured the Hawaiin Islands was taught the trick of bending down and pretending to pick up a rock and cocking your arm back as if you are about to throw. I have used this "fake" on occasion when other things didn't work. Of course, you have to be stationary/on foot to pull this off.
The Nashbar Halt holder looks like it would do the trick...if there was any room on my handlebars.The Halt! holder comes in 2 different sizes, so it is possible to attach it to your frame if your bars are full.
I've put it in my jersey pocket, but found that the wind broke up the stream so much it was ineffective, unlike the situations when I was a pedestrian.
A loud, authoritative yell starting with an explosive sound, like "Back off!" will usually intimidate an agressive dog.
My question is how many of you have 'mandatory' bike registrations/fees already in place.Never even heard of such a thing here in New England (phew). I agree I might feel okay about such a thing if the money was actually targeted toward bicycle concerns, but I doubt that is the case.
I have tried several recumbents but have not found any I like so they are ruled out (sorry).Hi TulsaJohn,
The one thing I wonder about is visibility on the road, especially in city/high traffic areas. Is it an issue with you bent riders? It seems they are way lower and would be harder for drivers to see.
Although I love my new Comotion, I believe that a recumbent may be in the future for me. We have a very good dealer in Plant City, Fl., Power On Cycling.
