I LOVE IT! I really like having fun on bike rides. That story is one of the best I've heard. Damn cell phones; now that one loses its effect.

These bells are absolutely great. There used to be a fellow in Toronto in the 80's who had one on his bike and would use it on club rides. He mastered the use so that it 'rang' just like a telephone. He would ring it as it came up to a red traffic signal, would then pull out and 'answer' a telphone handset from his pocket, then knock on a car window, saying 'it's for you!'

As this was before cell phones became widespread, you can just imagine the puzzled faces and reactions of the drivers. Priceless!
