Digital Bike Bell??

Hello all,

I bought a bike a couple months ago and have spent some time getting the parts exactly the way I want it. The last thing I need to find is a SMALL bell. I hate the clutter on handlebars and want the smallest most effective bell possible(kinda like asking for a cheap/race bike ). I went for a ride on a 30 mile paved path like I often do and have to dodge people walking. Well I saw a guy on a bike with a little thing on his handle bar that made a loud digital sound. Any familiar with this? Are there any good small digital bells out there?

Thanks in advance,

In order for it to be heard effectively, I would think you would need a fairly large transducer.

You can find fairly small mechanical bells, the added bonus is you don't need to worry about charging them.
