This is boulder, so if that were a biathlon rifle i wouldn't even take a second look, but given _that_.... well, somebody must be headed for Larimer County. ;-)

No cars will buzz that guy. This seems like a pretty good idea lol!

Edit: But I digress - I don't know my gun laws (Canadian) and that rifle and the way it's being transported likely don't comply. I'm sure his ride will get interrupt by the next concerned citizen lol.

can't tell from the low quality pic, receiver could be from anyone, looks very generic, but I think it's a Hogue fore-end (too smooth for LaRue, not enough holes for Yankee Hill) and the buttstock is VLTOR, I'm almost certain.

That's Awesome! After being chased by a pair of pit bulls last year I started carrying my Glock with me on training rides (legally with carry permit). Not sure what Colorado's carry laws permit but it's definitely a deterrent to keep cars from pushing you off the road.

I ride the Volente loop in N. Austin almost daily and there is one hill where a dog usually come running out at my. I was thinking about an electric cattle prod, but this picture has got me thinking at a whole different level. More so since an altercation last week when a guy with a pick up truck and trailer literally forced me off the road TWICE "cos he pays his taxes and I don't pay taxes for that there road bike"

I have considered riding armed like this (but with a handgun) but have debated whether or not it might make me more likely to get robbed or kidnapped. Locals give me a 75% chance of not coming back with my bike every time I head out anywhere near the capital.

I also considered having a custom jersey made with an image of a handgun on the back and an arrow pointing towards my jersey pockets. For now, ride softly and carry a big Glock is still in the future.

FYI: I live in HONDURAS.

And I love it.

Re: Riding While Armed (_heavily_ armed) [MarkyV] [In reply to] Quote | Reply

I'm wondering what kind of mount you could fabricate (obviously out of CF) so that a rifle could mount somewhat along the fork but you could instantly release it and use said weapon. Kinda like the old rifle holsters on horseback but I don't want the weapon covered, I want it in plain view. Then we could work on aero features of the rifle in combination of the fork.

Course being in Canada it would all be likely illegal anyway although perhaps mounting one on a mountain bike would be OK.

Gadalf. I hope you pilotely reminded the guy in the truck that he in fact does not pay state taxes as he and you are both in Texas.

On a side note I think carrying a gun like that in TX would be well within the law.

Will we start getting a bunch of posts asking which fore-end and buttstock is more aerodynamic? Is it rider dependant just like an aero helmet?

within the law!!!!! No Kidding. In Texas it's nearly damn illegal NOT to carry a gun. When I moved over here a few months ago, I thought all this 'right to bare arms' stuff was all about wearing T-Shirts in the summer. Then......

me arriving at Bush Intercontinental Airport last July.

INS agent: Sir, are you or any member of your family carrying any firearms or lethal weapons?

Me: None at all Sir.

INS : Oh, well you better take these then...... y'all have a nice day...

Then as we drove along 290 to Austin and we saw a HUGE Guns and ammo store that was having....[ I sh*t you not ] a BACK TO SCHOOL sale!!!!

When I was a kid in North Houston (a few miles from the Woodlands) I decided to ride my bike to a friends house with my pellet gun and got pulled over by a cop. He took a close look at it, handed it back, and let me go with a warning to "be careful." I don't know what he would have done if it had been a rifle. Or if I had been wearing spandex.

I'm pro second amendment, but having grown up in a state where schools are closed for gun season (aka, deer hunting), why would any moron need a semi-automatic rifle. That basically means, you can't shoot worth sh-t...or as Samuel L Jackson says..."when you have to absolutely, positively kill every motherf-cka in the room...."

Yes but in the US most states still have open carry laws. Such as mine Ut. You can open carry but you have be 2 actions from firing. So chambering the round and then pulling the trigger. I wonder if dis mounting the bike would count as an action ? Or just get a CCP and tuck this little gem in your jersey. This could go right along with a new IM venue , Say South Central a nice SoCal location.

Ironman run shoe weight
When you race an Ironman, what weight class do you think is most appropriate for you? A sub-6-ounce shoe is a pure racing flat. A 7.5 - 8oz shoe would be a Saucony Kinvara or Hoka Clifton. A 10-11oz shoe is a lightweight trainer.
5.5-6.0oz
7.5-8.0oz
9.5-11.0oz
12oz+
