    Combination bike horn and light

    I'm not ready to plunk down $65 for this product, but a dual-tone horn would be really useful for urban riding. The unfamiliar sound might confuse people, which might not be helpful. But at least they'd notice me.

    Nice find, if I rode on urban streets I'd consider putting one on my wishlist; I like the dual tone option.

    Hmmm. I'm horrible. I keep thinking it'd be fun to use this on all the pedestrians on the MUP who bounce along with earphone stuck in their heads (read, the walking oblivious).
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    Oh HAIL yeah. I'm still seriously considering one of those pump-up air horns for exactly that purpose. Except I doubt they would notice that either, and then I'd just be $30 down the hole.

    How is that horrible? That's what would motivate me to spend the money

    If I bought this horn, I'd have to buy a GoPro too. Because there would surely be some, um, interesting reactions. Then I'd want video editing software -- it would end up being a pricey horn. But oh what fun....

    Now ladies!!! you know how much we hate it when a car sneaks up behind us and blasts their horn. (although I totally get the oblivious people on the MUP)
