We have our horns in stock today, you can order them online in our bicycle horn store.I can honestly say that my awesome @LoudBicycle horn, a gift from @PedalGrok definitely saved me from serious injury this week. Thanks!!!— Pedal Daily (@PedalDaily1) June 26, 2015
I'm finding that the loud bicycle horn is actually making me a little more of a defensive rider. I really don't want to use it, it is very loud and can be kind of obnoxious. It is great to know that I have it available and when I have used it I found it to be very helpful. But not wanting to use it makes me think more as I'm riding of what the situation is and what I can do short of using the horn to prevent any problems. I did not expect this result. I think it is a good side effect.
When I ride I wear a helmet, of course, a reflective yellow vest, I have two bright lights in the front, a super bright light in the back (which I use day time and night time), and lights on my wheels. The Loud Bicycle Horn kind of capped off my safety measures.
You will note that the Velcro fitting supplied with the horn button is far too large for the narrow bars on our trikes and so we have used two narrow black cable ties. The horn button is easily pressed with the side of the hand whilst braking. They do work very well!
I rotated the extension arm so that it points vertical, and slid it all the way up. The arm diameter is small, so I cut two pieces of an old bike tube, and placed it on the arm, along with the extra pad provided with the horn. The handlebar end has a clear rubber strip to protect the handlebars from scratching.
It took a little finaggling, since turning it upside down meant that the bottom of the snail & wiring were interfering with the handlebar extender mount. I wound up attaching a plastic pvc-like sleeve to make the bar extender longer.
