I like my bell. It's not the "PING" kind, but the old timey "chhhh---ching!" kind. I think the peds hear it, but they largely ignore it.

I ring it mostly because I like to ring it, mostly.

What do dogs do when you hit it? I was going to pass, but might reconsider if it works both on cell phone
road hoggers and dogs.
