Next-Gen Biking: The Little Bell On Your Bike Grows Up

When you were a kid riding your bike around the neighborhood, you had to make do with a wimpy little bell to warn people of your approach. Lucky for you, just about everything is better now that you’re a grownup – including the bell on your bike.

This electronic version lets people know that you’re coming in a much more technologically advanced way. Strap it onto your handlebars and blast pedestrians with a sharp electronic squeal that’s much more intimidating than a little “ding!” The product page doesn’t say that it’s programmable, but we’d like to see an electronic bike bell that lets you program any noise you’d like. Imagine the monster-wheel bike with a bell that plays a tiger roar. You’d rule the bike trail!
