Any Delta Airhorn owners?

I've been wanting to get one of these. Nashbar.com has them on sale and is offer free shipping. How well do they hold up? I know you can put them in bottle cages, but do you have it mounted in a different location? I'd appreciate it if you can submit a photo. Thanks.

Nevermind about the free shipping. It expired.

I've had mine for a week or two and it's pretty fun. Problem is that I don't run with enough traffic to justify using it a lot but I'm fairly certain it will come in handy at some point.. I definitely wouldn't want to be without it.

I'm on my 3rd one. They are great if you ride in traffic.

Please note though - make sure that you are very gentle with the nipple while filling them up. After you fill the bottle up with more air and begin to take the nozzle off the nipple, wiggle the nozzle side to side very gently to prevent the nipple from coming up.
