Need A Method To Carry A Piece On A Bicycle Handlebar

I would like to make a mount/ system to carry a Glock 26 or single stack Glock or maybe an S & W Shield type pistol on the handlebars. I was thinking I should modify a zippered bag by adding a holster inside by which I could attach it to the handlebars. Have any of you done something like this before or what would you recommend for such a system?

TIA,

Jarhead

I'd carry IWB. That way, when you get knocked off the bike by someone, you'll have the pistol on you.

A holster inside a bag is a good idea. I rode for years with either a Colt Cobra .38 or FN1910 .32 in a small zippered handle-bar mounted bag. It was certainly not fast but was handy and discrete. I also had my wallet, keys, some change and a shop rag in the bag. I put all the "stuff" in the back/bottom and then the folded shop towel and the Rosco went on top/front. Had a round or two of snake shot up first in the Cobra then Silvertips. IWB carry would have created an unsightly bulge in the otherwise svelte profile in my biking shorts. Today I might do the same with my G26, except I mostly only ride the recumbent at the gym. 16.57 miles this morning, at least 16 miles three mornings a week plus two yoga classes. Getting old sucks.

These have molly backs so they can strap on the handle bars or fit on your belt.

Thanks my brother. I'm going to look at bags like those next time I get to an Academy or Cabela's or the next gun show. My LGS doesn't carry stuff like that .

I carry my pistol in pocket of riding jersey while on a bike. That way it's always with me even if walk away from bike and does not raise any eyebrows.
