    I use mine a lot too. Anytime I'm on a street and someone is sitting in a parallel parked car, they get a ding, just in case they're about to get out. I actually did a cut across 2 lanes to make a left (getting bold here ) and dinged my way across . I've also ridden the last couple weekends with a small group in downtown LA and we ding for fun or ding to say (wait for me! which is usually me).

    Little kids love when you ring at them too.

    From the Ergon-grips to a Cateye Strada Wireless computer, with a decent headlamp, is the original handlebar that came with the Trek 7.5 FX. I've been thinking of a bell - but we shall see. I have trekking-bars on the way. I'll see if they work before that though. Those are PAUL Love-Levers for the brakes - those are the best I've ever seen!

    Oh yeah - I didn't like the stock Shimano Deore shifters. Those are SRAM Attack ones. Much better and not much money:

    My husband,who didn't want a bell, uses it all the time now..though mostly to annoy me when we're riding.

    Also my cats loves us to ding that bell in the apartment..she goes nuts

    Bells are required by law here! It comes in handy as I ride around the multi-use trails.

    I was surprised how much I use my bell. I use it mostly coming up behind people. When I 1st got my bike I thought it was like joke by Trek. That little thing bangs out a tone

    My husband has those too. He loves em. I just have the twist shifters. I guess they're fine since I seriously know nothing else. Perhaps in a year or two if I''ve used my bike enough to warrant an upgrade, I'll get more picky with these things.

    Hook 'em horns! The longhorns were given to me, I think they came stock on some Cannondale mountain
    bikes back in the day. I really like them. Rusty stock bars, stem. Rusty old Deore thumb shifter replaced
    broken twist shifter.

    Need new grips. The rubber parts are badly worn, the stock left outer grip is made of hard plastic that won't
    wear out. it just gets shinier.

    Its a clamp from Lowes. In the isle where they have bolts and nuts and such and in one of the drawers is a simple clamp thats a flat piece of metal that wraps around with a hole to bolt it together and has a rubber covering. I couldn't find one that fits perfect and had to take the rubber off one and put it inside the other to make it tight. I boltedit together with a 1" long 1/4-20 bolt (thats the thread in the bottom of cameras) and a lock nut. Then a wing nut with the wings facing downward so I can tighten it up against the camera body to lock it in place.

    Thanks for the info. I have one of those cameras, too, and this could be a lot of fun.

    Here's mine...

    To Wanderer..hey buddy, got a light?

    Here is my mid 80's Ross that I have been modifying to my liking. The light is from Harbor Freight, 2 for $3.99 on sale...

    Whole new Tektro brake system with a top bar lever and aero levers. The mirror is fantatsic. Clear as a bell and no shaking. And of course, a Cateye Strada Cadence.

    Best regards,

    MIke
