It looks like an old "ring the bell" bicycle horn, but the Blow Hard is actually a modern electronically-controlled sound system.
It comes with three standard horn sounds and more can be downloaded from the Blow Hard website.
All three sounds will get the attention of any fool daring enough to get in your way!
webBikeWorld readers like their horns (did I say that?) No horn is big enough, loud enough or obnoxious enough, as far as they're concerned.
But the "Blow Hard" has to be the most unique horn there is!
It looks like one of those old-school "ring-a-ding-ding" horns, straight from a Good Humour ice cream truck. But, with the miracle of modern technology, the Blow Hard can toot any tune you like.
It comes with three basic horn sounds -- including that 1950's bell (accurately reproduced in full stereo) -- and a couple of modern honkers.
The modern sounds include the standard disk-type "bleeeep" and the more authoritative "honk" of a trumpet horn.
But, you can download more horn sounds from the Blow Hard website, and there's even an app that let's you preview the sounds and install it directly to your installed Blow Hard via a Bluetooth connection.
Of course, it's hard to describe the incredibly life-like tones from the Blow Hard horn, so we put together a quick video to illustrate:
Bottom line? You need one of these for your bike. Don't be a fool -- when you have to toot, let it go. Remember: Blow Hard!
From "R.H." (April 2014): "This thing is as loud as a Stebel Nautilus horn I used to own!"
From "D.B." (April 2014): "At first I thought I'd have no use for this, but then I discovered the Bobcat Goldthwait soundboard collection available for download. There is no horn in the world capable of inflicting the kind of emotional damage that my Blow Hard can now dish out."
From "H.S." (April 2014): "I downloaded the police siren sound from the Blow Hard website and I mounted a PowerFlare LED emergency light (review) on my helmet. My mom sh*te her britches when I came up behind her car and let loose. That's what I call fun!"
From "L.T." (April 2014): "Perfect -- I have an old Harley Servi-Car three-wheeler, I'm planning on selling ice cream this summer, this is just what I need."
From "A.C." (April 2014): " I've been using this on my Kenworth rig, the bell is the only thing that gets their attention. Never thought of using it on my bike."
