    Howdy, Fritz–Call me a curmudgeon, but I don't think bells make bikes happy–they make them annoying.I don't like bells, but, alas, I need one. I've moved to a place where the MUVs have signs that say, "Cyclists must give warning," or some such silliness. That means, instead of simply staying to the right accepting that there are other, faster path users, pedestrians, joggers and plugs of cyclists take up the whole path, expecting others to issue directions. I'm glad roads don't work that way, or the din of horns would be unbearable.So, I need a bell. In fact, I need two–one for my daughter's trail-a-bike. She'll enjoy using it.Thanks,Ron Georg.

    Is it possible to hear this bell before I commit to trying to win it? One should not just rush all willynilly into such an important decision.

    Now that my bike commute is on a fairly heavily used path, I need a bell. There are too many walkers and runners using earphones and seem to think they're the only ones on the trail.

    I'm just happy with the nice pictures of bikes & their riders, but if I can get a bell, all the better. My little girl just started getting into the Trail-A-Bike, and would love to have some way to make noise. The picture above makes me think I need to take her riding over in Santa Cruz.
