No I don't have a cow bell on my bike (I am tempted) and yes I will put some mega loud hubs on my bike. My frustration is that my bike is too quiet and at night when there are many black clothed ninjas walking the cycle path, that seriously appear out of nowhere despite 800+ lumens, you need to have a way to at least let your presence known somehow. I will resort to having the ABC News radio on my commutes so at least it is not some genre of music which will invariably incite some opinions and I can get some news fed to me via a loud speaker and not feel so bored riding.
