I have a pretty standard thumb bell, but sometimes it seems quite ineffective against some of the peds out there.
I have tried to tailor my bell ringing style so as to not to be too polite and not overly agressive, my strategy consists of two dings straight after each other. (strategy..lol)
Success Rate: 80%
My dilemma is if I get no response, do I go for a speedy quadruple thumb flick? shout at them "coming through" or even revert to my telescopic cattle prod!
I'd be keen to know fellow cyclists style and what you do when you get no response.
