;D I guess the first reaction will be "baduy" but you guys who does a lot of urban riding knows the frustration on dealing with pedestrians specially in the Philippines where people tend to use the street as their sidewalk. Do you equip you bikes with bells? Did it ever crossed your mind that its better to have one? Is the laws requires the use of an audible signal or a bell to warn pedestrians? Or just for courtesy reason it better to use one?
I got air horn for my bike which I use to commute to work. Airzounds is the brand I got it for about 1,350 . you simply pump it with your tire pump or airhose sa Gas station. It's as loud as a truck horn kaya pag na pindot ako pati jeep tigil minsan iyon tao na papatalon. kala nila Container truck ang dadaan , bike ko lang pala hahaha ;D,
Importante yan lalu na kapag nasa loob ka ng subdivision. Kung ayaw mo maging baduy, may nabibili dito sa Laguna sa tabi-tabi P50.00 lang yata yon, de battery pwede itago sa loob ng saddle para di kita, malakas.
Will definitely use one on my MTB, I already have one for my single speed.... but I noticed here, Japanese dont use their bells untill its necessary, they just slow down and wait for the pedestrian to move aside and not startle them with the bell. When passing they'll say "sumimasen" means excuse me
Its the same thing as using the car horns...you'll be surprised that you might be standing a busy intersection but wont hear a car horn for the whole day.
