Verbal Bicycle Bell Lets Them Know You're Coming

Many of us have taken to riding bicycles rather than driving. Not only is it healthier, but you don’t have to worry about finding a parking space, you can go places you can’t get to in a car, and you don’t have to pay the ridiculous price of gasoline. But depending on where you live, what time of day it is, how busy the road is, etc., sometimes pedestrians simply don’t pay attention to a bicycle heading their way, even if you use your bell. This will end that little problem in a hurry, I bet.

The default voice says “on your left” at 80 decibels, which ought to get just about anyone’s attention. It features a 44mm speaker, which is easily mounted on your handlebars. You can also record your own message if you’d prefer, up to 20 seconds long. Of course, that could get dangerous, depending on how frustrated you are when you make the recording, but it would be best if you kept it clean. If you don’t want to use a voice message, it does also have the standard bicycle bell.

Power comes from three LR44 batteries (included). It measures 2 3/4″ long by 2 1/4″ wide, and weighs just 2 1/3 oz. These are available now for $24.95 US.
