Old Timey Sniper Bike

We haven’t heard much follow-up since the Critical Mass violence in Seattle, but we did get a reader tip that the Seattle Police Department was considering putting their officers on bikes like this 15-gun Sniper Bike for the next CM ride …


This wonder of police engineer would shoot in all directions and most likely end like a Wile E. Coyote cartoon. Also, only effective on the flats – you’re not getting that bad-boy up Yesler.

Note that I don’t know if a top tube has ever been designed with gun barrels since then. Better for plowshares.
