    Right ok

    I commute to work – the initial section of my ride is farmtracks and don’t encounter anyone.

    But

    The last 4 miles is along a narrow canal towpath…and …..shock horror people blocking the way.

    I don’t want to ruin the aesthetics of my bike with a bell :^)

    So is there anything I can use that is small and effective ( I just know that this post is going to get hijacked and riddiculed)….

    I use “Hello”. It seems to work for me.

    Choose another route, then!!

    WTF is wrong with a little bell? It’s polite and considerate, to use one, I think. People seem to respond quite positively, to my little ping bell.

    its a bell, but a minimalist one, ben@kinetics sells them.

    my experience of bells is equivocal – if you’re not on the street, many people will look around confusedly expecting the angel Gabriel to appear from the sky, jump a mile in panic, or just ignore their sudden onset tinnitus…

    £15 for a bell… I do like it though, would look good on my Brompton 🙂

    I’ve got one of these on my RoadRat…

    Flippin awesome it is too, far louder than most car horns…

    :o)

    Word of warning though, I once leaned over the handlebars to undo the front quick release and leant on the button with my ear right next to the horn…
    I heard bells for quite a while after that.
