    Why no mention of maintaining your own bike. Long term probably the biggest money saver for bike owners.
    Absolutely, but then getting a bike serviced professionally is so cheap that it's sometimes easier to start that way.
    Though everyone should be able to replace an inner tube and adjust brakes and gears.
    As for bells,  never use one, I prefer the device nature gave me for communicating with my fellow humans. 
    I find a lot of people ignore/don't hear shouts of "excuse me" but respond to a bell. I use it a lot more than I'd expect even if it feels stupid.
