 That bell is sooo Enduro

 I have that bell and I love it. Off/on without taking my hand off the bar, and more civil than a standard bell. Pricey, though.
  • 54 3
 @Phillyenduro: $20 is pricey? I thinm you may be in the wrong sport.
  • 4 3
 I thought the same thing, strava warriors now have another reason so think they can descend without ever stopping for someone. But, I do like the bell, and riding in PC Utah, a lot of people use them, and it just keeps it safe, and you have more blind corner flow. Now here in Boise, I want to apply the same thing. I've had hikers yell at me to use a bell....maybe I will....and maybe I'll be able to not stop, and blow right past those beatrice.

 @twowheelsforthemasses: Everything is pricey for a pinkbiker.

 @twowheelsforthemasses: I went to the local sporting goods store and picked up a fishing line bell for about 2 bucks. It clasps around my brake line when I need it. Works great.

 Started using my dogs bear bell on my bike this past season and blown away by how often people are waiting on the side of trail for me to ride by. Now I always use it on popular trails

 @properp: I know there are good deals here, I've bought quite a few things off it. Check Out usually features new or up and coming products, most of which many of us would have to sell a kidney for.

 Less than 400$ for Body Armour...Not bad
OVER 200$ for a windbreaker?!?!!??!
No wonder this has changed to 300$ Checkout...
Needs to be changed to RIPOFF Items worth 10's of dollars going for insanity.
The only thing in Biking that should be expensive IS the bike...The rest Is mindless PAP that is extremely good at lightning pockets and nothing more.

 Those jackets were most likely made in contract at $10's of dollars per-unit, per-several-hundred units.

For $130 I bought a Mountain Hardware jacket for MTB that has taken many falls and not ripped. Looking at the materials of these jackets, I couldn't be so confident of not destroying the materials the jacket is made of on first fall.

 Shout ding ding. Cost zero, weight zero, no maintenence, no bar space used ,doesn't look stupid ,no explaining what it is, and you can fully customise the sound on the fly to say I dunno "move it you old bint you have seen me coming a mile away and have moved to block me intentionally so I'm going to run you over worthless POS"
If they can incorporate all that to slot in the end of the bar there onto a winner

 I bought those Manual shorts, and let me say I am no XC goat mountain climbing beast with leg muscles to match, but they are skinny as all hell in the thighs. Too tight to even wear while riding. Once you bend your leg up, like your sitting on a bike seat?, its tighter frickin spandex

 I sure wish pink bike would change it to deals of the month instead of overpriced vanity items. Sure can't wait to shave seconds off my ride laps with that solar charger.
