which is a nice "extra" benefit. You can drop it and go prone just as fast as you can use rifle butt to break your fall and go prone. I studied Judo in addition to karate, so breakfalls are second nature to me.

TODD:
This is how the NVA used to bring supplies down the HO CHI MINH trail. Our resident expert, on nearly everything, must have read about this technique some place.

All it did was slow them down, and make good targets out of them. It was kind of like shooting fish in a barrel.

Actually if oaded right a pushed bike could carry large amounts of gear, but I am suspiscious if 223FAN agrees. I believe the Mtn. bike to be the best short haul bug out vehicle available. Doesn't eat when not in use, needs no grooming, if the trail is to rough carry it, doesn't get worms, or any other infections, and dont have to have a on-site vet to keep it in good health. Anothe rplus is You can buy and store in your personal hidey-hole until needed, also wont run away if you dont tie it down. I have several and keep them in running order, it keeps me in running order as well.

You'll need duck tape or some hose clamps. The NVA would attach a stick to the handlebars, to extend the handle bars to one side, to help hold onto it as they walked down the trail.

A cargo bike can hold a surprising amount. The NVA would specially reinforce their bikes.

During a bugout this would be a slow way to move, but if you are already in the mountains, like you bring some mountain bikes with you in your truck, it might be a good way to carry cargo from place to place, like say, you shoot an elk and you need to pack the meat back to camp.

good post

HALF-ELF , i had a huge jack mule once ! he was real 'catty' i had to hobble him when i wasn't on him, i was the 3rd owner of him and he beat me,[you had to be ready for the rodeo constantly] the last i heard , he was a pack mule up in CO. it could have been the dog food factory, and i wouldn't have cared!

a 21 speed mt. bike doesn't burn any hay. or try to kill you!



thanks.

Mike:
Have you ever seen, or read about a device that is used to carry large game out of the hills. The ones that I have seen look like a top part of a stretcher, attached to two bicycle wheels, that are mounted side by side, about two, or three feet apart. One man on each end and a huge ELK can be wheeled out.

You could build a travois, that instead of dragging on the ground, could have wheels....
