E-Bikes Getting Well E-quipped with Loud Minis



The Loud Bicycle horn and e-bikes are like peanut butter and jelly—they go together so well!

We'd like to show off one of our customer's slick e-bike rides equipped with the slickest accessory of them all: our Loud Mini horn.

Bill's Civi Cheetah

This magical monster of a ride comes from Bill Tateo of Knoxville, TN:

It's a Civi Cheetah e-bike in midnight black, with a 7-speed Shimano system and 750 watt geared hub 48volt 17.5 mah battery, and 5 pedal assist modes! Bill added the seat, a Fito lumbar support, as well as full fenders, pannier bags, rack, fork bag and most importantly: OUR LOUD BICYCLE HORN👌

Mounting


As you can see, Bill mounted his Loud Mini underneath the downtube. He used a large-tube GoPro mount ingeniously to do so:

"I used it today and like magic the car stopped and let me by!!! I can't thank you enough for such a great safety feature all bikes should have! I've had it a little over a week and put 105 miles—a real pleasure to ride!" —Bill Tateo

Keeping families safe with Loud Mini

Peter Stormare (who you may have seen in such blockbuster hits as Fargo and The Big Lebowski) contacted us recently, because he wanted to share with us how much he and his family loves our horns. He rides with his daughter, Kaiya, to school every day, and wouldn’t dream of doing so without their Loud Minis in tow.



This month, we at Loud Bicycle would love to see more families riding together, and so we’re going to take Peter’s sage advice and help more families around the world to get LOUD. Please sign up for our mailing list and check our social media feeds on facebook and twitter to see how we can help you.

If you’re as excited about family ridership as we are, we hope that you’ll Loud Bicycle and help your family to become a Loud Family :)

Happy leaves-crunching-under-tire season!

—The Loud Bicycle Team

Bikepacking with a Loud Brompton Folding Bicycle

Sam Mitchell recently his experience, bikepacking on a folding bike with Loud Mini and we were enthralled ... so naturally we had to share his photos and comments.
The bike I took on a tour to the outer hebrides (300 miles approx) is a rohloff geared 28 speed Brompton! You cant always be on the quiet paths and the slow speed of a tourer, people need to know you are there. Plus the look on a country farmers face as the bike cruises by with the two tone beeping. Pretty good! But I also ride it in London with the horn constantly, commuting bike on steroids. As you can see Loud Mini fits very nicely into the handlebars of the Brompton with some velcro keeping it in place, thus it comes away easily for stowing. It's such a great product. –– Sam 




Here we can see his Loud Mini creatively sandwiched in there - though we recommend hanging Loud Mini from the handlebars as shown below.


Here is a photo from @luisggpina  of Loud Mini attached the way that is easiest on a Brompton folding bike.

Loud Mini and our friend ActionKid just featured



We can all agree that riding a bicycle in New York City is a lot less scary when your bike horn sounds like a car horn. Check out ActionKid's youtube page for more videos of riding a bike in NYC.
