I've heard that if you're in grizzly country, and mountain biking, do not use a frame protector. This allows your chain to freely rattle against the frame and make enough noise to get the bear moving away from you. I've also heard that bear spray is worthless and that lifting your bike straight up over your head and shaking it (to rattle the chain), is the best defense for a mountain biker. What do you think?
