I need something light and small for mountain biking, among other things, as there are a lot of weird people out there in the hills, not to mention mountain lions etc who are significantly larger and faster than me, and I often ride alone because there is just no one to go with. Also had problems on the road on my road bike on long rides. A woman alone is subject to whoever comes by, esp when there aren't a lot of people around. Can't carry a boat anchor on a bicycle. Or anywhere else for that matter. Why is this model illegal in CA? Do the people who make the laws think we're all crazy here in CA or what; isn't this sort of infantilizing grown up adults? thanks to anyone who might have one, or a suggestion for where to find one.
