The Bike Horn

check out this headset integrated electronic horn. When I first saw it, it took me a couple seconds to figure out what it was. I've never seen anything mounted on a road bike in the fashion. Once I hit the red button on the handle bars, and was startled by a loud and obnoxious horn, it became obvious. Pretty damn cool really, I mean a bell really has its limitations.
This thing is just loud. I hate cars horns as much as the next road going cyclist, but this just some how seems like a good idea. If someone beeps at you and almost runs you off the road, its probably better than just plain yelling. So things like this are probably a good addition to any commuter bike, and check out the head set mounted clock, snazzy!

I wonder if you can program it to play Dixie like the General Lee? If so, I'm sold. Whoa, I'm dating myself.

there's two other versions.
AIR HORNS, one guy we ride with has the usual sporting event horn that he attaches to his messenger bag, the other one i saw a guy with uses a water bottle that you fill with compressed air with your bike pump (80psi?) and a hose runs from it to the horn, like riding with semis, i'm sure someone driver has shit themselves.

I have one of those AirHornz, it's really loud. Setback is it's like a camelbak in size, and you can only use it a couple of times.
