Yep got bells on all my MTB. I go for the polite ding and cheery hello. If people intentionally choose not to hear the bell I tend to give a couple more dings. I have been previously labelled a "militant campanologist" by my cycling buddies.
bells off road...
I've got a 'ting ting' bell fitted on all my bikes including my Whyte 146 which usually gets me some stick from fellow riders.
TBH I usually forget to use it until I'm right up behind fellow trail users but in conjunction with a good morning / afternoon it's usually appreciated.
I have in the past been berated by other trail users when I didn't have a bell and using a line stolen from a friend when asked where my bell is reply 'on my front door'which always seemed to increase the 'loving' bond between red sock'r and rider
when asked where my bell is reply 'on my front door'I like that!
b) I usually just utter the words "ding a ****' ling" in my most sarcastic tone
