    Bell Busted?

    Has anyone ever been busted for not having a bell on their bike? I don't want to ugly up my new ride with one. If you did get a ticket, is there anyway to get around paying it?

    Never been busted for not having one, but I would kind of like to put one on my bike. I like the nerd factor of it.

    It's illegal to live with a significant other if you're not married.
    And it's illegal to drive 1 mph over the speed limit.

    People get busted for those kinds of things all the time (<-- sarcasm)

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    I feel like they should have handlebar plugs that are bells...

    Or maybe you could get around it by wearing a jingly bell on your wrist or around your neck. Woot! Holidays!

    Actually, I like my idea so much that I may have to get on making a cycling wristband with a bell on it.

    It's like any other accesory you may or may not need. Once you go look for one you'll find one you have to have. I want this one!
