I'm not sure about this... does anyone else cringe when the see a large knife with the blade upward in the exact location that ones "delicate region" goes when the bike stops?!? Sure, there is a sheath but I'm not sure I'd be willing to risk it :eek::eek::eek:

He's got a point... and so does the knife...
I might change the thread title to 'Eviscerated cyclist, over there!'.

The knife is better stashed with the jamon...pointed downward. Other than that, I sort of like the concept. But, it needs more refinement...

An ordinary crossbar can do enough damage - which is why I ride this:

Eviscerated is not the word I would use. Emasculated is more what comes to mind. I do like the second, no knife aimed at my 'parts', and it has me thinking about modifying my touring bike. Might be a reason to use it more, although not on el Camino. I am definitely a walker not a biker. Less chance for me to get in someone's way, especially after some cerveza or vino!
