    My new horn...

    As I commute to work regularly as a nurse at a State mental hospital, my fellow coworkers felt it neccessary to be concerned with safety as I work evening shift and ride in any weather. A patient came to me and asked why I would put a pink horn on such an expensive bike. I assurred the pt that they must be mistaken as I had only a bell and did not have any horns....I was so convincing that she brought a fellow patient to make sure she wasnt seeing things (Like she doesnt have enough stuff to deal with). Well it turns out she was right....and a fellow LPN had thought of me and put the horn on while I was at work as a joke figuring I could always put it on my daughters bike. Just a funny story that I thought I share.

    I had a Snoopy horn on my first really chi-chi bike. I think my aunt gave it to me as a joke after she had heard how much I had spent on it. But I did stick it on and use it for a while.

    I do have a commute for rainy but...

    At 41y old and 14 years in the army jumping out of airplanes and 50 mile road marches, a purple heart, and a combat jump star. my body has been thru much and I aml ooking for excercise for smooth ride.Suspensions are the ticket. I dont mind being a litttle slower if I am not feeling the road. I also carry a 40 lb back pack will riding. I dont get out of town to ride much track latley, I would rather ride my ventana then not ride at all or settle for a beater. I am surprised at the lack of people not riding fulls suspension for road. That is for the over 40 crowd....

    throw some semi slick tires on there and it'll make you life easier. Just switch them out when you want to hit the trails.

    Cute horn...

    go for brass

    It's a nice horn, but a high-class bike like that needs one of those big brass horns with a curve in it.
