Mountain Bike Bear Spray Holder
Created on .

Earlier this year, a woman was killed by a black bear on a trail that my partner and I run or bike almost every day! On the day of the incident, we likely ran within a couple hundred yards of her body… needless to say we have been very careful to always carry bear spray.
But how do I carry bear spray on my mountain bike?
When I run, it goes in my vest pocket or I carry it in my hand. The bear spray can is too small to fit in the water bottle holder… so what do I do?
Buy bear spray and holder with belt attachment
Cut off the belt attachment
Drill holes matching that of my bike frame mounts
Sorry no photos. 😦
Attach the bear spray can holder to the bike frame
Get out and ride!
Does it work?
So far, I have had no issues with the mount. It hasn’t fallen out, been hit by my foot, etc. Let’s just hope I never need to use it! 🤞
