Selected bicycle horns on eBay.com
Bicycle horns give voices to city bikers. As any serious cyclist can attest, city biking – or biking anywhere with heavy vehicle traffic – can get very dangerous, as many drivers fail to respect bike lanes and cycling safety. This is also true in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic, where walkers aimlessly stroll into bike paths without acknowledging oncoming bikers.
Bicycle bells and horns are how cyclists communicate to those around them, alerting anyone in their path and ensuring the safe passage of pedestrians, vehicles, and – of course – cyclists. Bicycle air horns are so important to road safety that they are required by law in most states.
Here are some industry favorites to help you find the right horn.
Great Ideas For a Bicycle Horn
The Pyramid Bicycle Squeeze Horn is another simple horn, operated by squeezing its rubber bulb. You can easily attach it to your bicycle handlebar with its metal construction.
This 7.5″ long chrome plated horn can be used by kids, as well as by adults, and it is excellent for both safety and fun.
Ventura Bugle Bicycle Horn – For those who prefer the antique model, the classic bike bugle is still available and just as effective as ever. This bike horn clips on easily and produces an unmistakable air horn sound, letting everyone know that you’re coming around the bend.
While this type might be cumbersome for competitive spirits, it’s still a great gift for youth riders or those who bike for leisure.
Add style to your bike without sacrificing practicality. The Be Alert horn helps bikers announce their presence to foot and motor traffic with a classic trumpet-style horn. The horn is easy to work, and can easily be snapped onto the handlebars for quick installation.
The weather-resistant chrome-plated steel horn provides a vintage look that can become a focal point on a newer bike or blend into the classic style of an older model. At 1.6 ounces, the Be Alert horn will not throw off your balance or get in the way of your handhold.
The Sunlite Super Siren Bicycle Alarm is unique, as it is not an air horn, but I’ve decided to put it here anyway. It is operated by a battery and has 3 Sound effects (Police, Fire Engine and Ambulance). It also has a microphone. The Sunlite horn is easily mounted to the handlebar center bolt.
