Cool Bike Accessories

From spoke riders and reflectors to bike horns and bells, Kidzworld checks out the coolest ways to jazz up your bicyle.

Horns & Bells

Adding a horn or bell to your bicycle is a great way to make a lot of noise and safely let other people know that you're on the road. An old-skool bugle horn or a bell is always nice, but if you really want to let people know you're coming through, check out the Delta Airzound Horn. It just might be the most obnoxious-sounding warning device around. The Airzound is easily recharged using a bicycle pump or air compressor and can reach a volume of 115 decibels! It's the perfect way to signal motorists, scare little old ladies or let other bike riders know that you've arrived. If you're looking for something a bit more stylish and not so annoying, try the Mirrycle Incredibell Jellibell - a colorful, easy to mount bell with a covered dome that rings loud and clear.

Spoke Riders and Streamers

Spoke riders and streamers aren't for everyone and you might think you're a bit old to have them on your bike - but they're a great way to give your ride a bit more sound and color. You can personalize your bike with a packet of Bell Spoke Riders which are shaped like space ships and flying saucers and easily fit on the spokes of your bike. Spoke riders will make your bike more visible and they make fun, tinkly sounds! If you really want to get wild, add a pair of streamers to the end of your handle bars and you'll be the most stylin' rider in your 'hood.

Locks

The one bike accessory you never want to be without is a lock. There's nothing worse than having to phone your 'rents for a ride home after some punk's ripped off your bike cuz you left it unlocked outside 7-11. It's best to get a solid steel U-shaped lock. They're nearly impossible to cut through and can easily be mounted to the frame of your bike.

Computers

Give you bike a high-tech upgrade by mounting a bicycle computer on the handlebars. Bike computers can range in price from $10 to over $100 and can track your speed, elevation, distance traveled and much more.

I loved it espically the concerts.:love I did it for eight years and soon fell in love with everyone that I was working with.I did ballet jazz and tap through the years.Then I turned 12 I decided I wasn't happy and after 9 years of living with my wonderful grandparents I moved with my father in a new state with leaving I left ballet and I haven't been back since the day I said I was leaving.I miss ballet but ever since I've moved here I have a new reputation to work with I'm not the good girl doin twirls in the dance studio anymore.I don't know .....I miss it sometimes though...
