Some of you have got pepper spray attached to your hydration packs. What's the name and where did you get it?

Would you rather sacrifice 0.1km/h with the pepper spray or 10km/h with the big guys?

B bought one for me from the security shop in Sandton, will have to check the brand when I get home. My friend ThePanda rides with a brand called SWAT, in a black container with red writing. Make sure it's pepper spray and not mace as pepper spray is more effective. Mine has a protective cover over the spray nozzle so you don't accidentally depress

has anyone actually used that stuff (sucessfully) on a potential bikejacker?

i know some guys from a notorious ride group in benoni who've used it on a aggressiveAngrymotorist or two

So does pepper spray have any performance-enhancing qualities? Apart from incapacitating your opponents, that is... Wink

I am just seriously worried about inhaling the stuff when reaching for a gel or something, and then having to confess past sins in front of the international media...

Uhm - you all might want to consider giving it a (albeit expensive) test run...

 

Know two people that came unstuck with this stuff...

 

#1 was a t**ser who "bounced" the pub I used to work in. Got into an ugly scene with a lad waaaayyyyyyy bigger than him. Took the pepper/mace out with him just in case. It became just in case. So he whips it out, and sprays. But instead of a 'mist', this stuff sprays out in a little stream. Because he was so close to the other guy, the 'stream' of pepper/mace, shot across and hit the other guy on the forehead, before neatly ricocheting/rebounding back into our t**ser's eye....

 

WHAT an idiot. Needless to say, the other lad was a tad upset.

But he suffered no side-effects from the attempted macing.

"Unfortunately", our t**ser never saw what hit him though.

Literally.

 

As for friend #2.

Well, let's just say that if the spray does exit in a 'mist' form - DO NOT SPRAY it into the wind...

 

 

 

Good grief - am I imagining things, or has Patricia de Lille got blogs to begin automatically editing out words such as t**ser....

 

Ok.

I'm not imagining it.

Fancy that.

t**sers!
