Came here to say this. I’ve been thanked dozens of times for my Timberbell. Most hikers are happy to step aside for a moment. I still slow way down.I use a timber bell as well....It’s an amazing tool for preventing any trail conflict. I typically ride very fast and always slow for people, but with the bell they are trail side and smiling thanking me before I get there.

Before I had a Timberbell I used to scare people unintentionally all the time. They were never in danger, but they didn’t know that.
