I'm tired of using my voice and losing it when I get to my destination. Some times I just don't have the energy to yell out and other times they just don't hear me.

I need this!

Hornit. Some of our Bike Routes here in Vancouver have rather dimly lit intersections: So I give a ring of the bell (at present) to warn of my approach.
In the rain, as bell can sometimes be muffled by the water.
This horn would be a great upgrade!]]> b88306b2-4618-11e2-8b46-1231394043be Fri, 14 Dec 2012 10:04:36 GMT
Busy Listening to Music/Phone 55735a4e-4560-11e2-91d2-1231394043be Thu, 13 Dec 2012 12:04:42 GMT To awaken my fellow commuters e8628810-455c-11e2-bda2-1231394043be Thu, 13 Dec 2012 11:40:11 GMT The road runner ca3f7daa-4540-11e2-acb3-1231394043be Thu, 13 Dec 2012 08:18:54 GMT The Dark Hill
At night, though, the story changes. I illuminate my bike with dozens of LEDs, and clothe myself in hi-viz and retroreflective splendor as a king of yore would don his jewels and ermine. A glowing and flashing sideshow in motion, I soon leave the streetlights behind as I rush toward the hill, my Mount Crumpit. With all the speed I can muster, I shudder back across the tracks and slowly climb back out from the core of the planet in all-enveloping blackness. In the hours since the morning, the drivers have been changed. Wearied from their days in cubicles or serving customers, their patience for the plodding peddler puffing his way up the hill has worn thin. Although they can see -- can't help but see! -- my lumbering form alight in the night, they disdain to leave their lane to pass on the right. Honda and Hummer, Pontiac and Porsche, they all yield but the stingiest of clearance to me, the slipsteam of their effortless uphill climb shakes me in my steady course.

If only I could express to them in the slightest of ways, in the loud vernacular of the road, my displeasure; a braying warning to them of the danger their carelessness causes; to shake them out of their ignorance to elicit a second thought and perhaps a sheepish look when we meet again at the stoplight. A really, really loud horn would be just the thing.]]> 2ef06440-453b-11e2-8ed2-1231394043be Thu, 13 Dec 2012 07:38:46 GMT
To find my way in the dark. 08929266-4525-11e2-94a8-1231394043be Thu, 13 Dec 2012 05:00:13 GMT Why I need this fantastic light! ]]> 07145866-44d5-11e2-beaf-1231394043be Wed, 12 Dec 2012 19:27:31 GMT Hornit My reasoning for wanting to win this horn is pretty cut and dry. Living in Chicago's SW side my everyday commute runs parallel with commuter and freight rail lines for about 6 miles. I start work at 5 am so it's still dark and motorists haven't had their coffee yet. Needless to say I have had a few close calls that should of been completely avoided if the driver could of heard or seen me alongside them. Thanks guys, your doing awesome things in the cycling community.]]> f84d6144-44cd-11e2-82d1-1231394043be Wed, 12 Dec 2012 18:36:59 GMT Because I need it.
On the weekends, I take my bicycle on Caltrain and head to San Francisco to swim. There's a lot of tourist traffic between the station and Aquatic Park and yes, I have to ride through Fisherman's Wharf, where you have tourists just wandering aimlessly about, jumping out of sidewalks to take a picture, drivers dropping people off at random spots...

It would be nice to have a horn for both types of riding. One that's a little quieter for the trail that won't startle anyone, more like "hi, I'm here and I'm coming through..." and one for riding in San Francisco.

Thanks! ]]> 6653854a-44b7-11e2-a93b-1231394043be Wed, 12 Dec 2012 15:55:26 GMT

I commute through the downtown core of my city every day and it would be nice if I could alert cars to my presence in a similar manner that a bell alerts users of our local path system. I can think of a few times when having a nice loud horn blast could have helped me avoid being cut off or almost squished.]]> 83929b10-44b1-11e2-9373-1231394043be Wed, 12 Dec 2012 15:13:18 GMT
