Want to passive aggressively heckle someone whose going a little slower than you?

The silent heckle is awesome. Set up up your bike with the loudest rear hub available and proceed
coast behind the heckled making sure your are free wheeling and your loud clicky is anouncing your lack of need to pedal...

Fixed. I'm slow as hell and know it and happily get out of the way asap when someone comes up behind me. I love loud hubs because I can hear them coming up on me earlier.

My deep throaty heavy breathing/growling normally does the trick and if not I make the sounds with a heavy german accent.

Why the need to passive-aggressively heckle someone?
99.9% of the time, I'm courteous. 0.1% I speak my truth, calmly and clearly.

For shits and giggles!

To be fair I'm heckling mates I'm riding with. Not random strangers.

that type of behavior should only be used towards hikers, typically when your air horn has been depleted. If you want to be passive aggressive, hug their wheel and have a conversation where you ask them lots of questions as they gasp for breath. Far classier.

Sometimes I like to sneak up on them on my SSS (silent single speed) and see how long I can ride behind them before they know I'm there.

Me too. I think it's waaayy more fun to sneak up on people. Silent stalking FTW. Someone actually told me to get a bell so they would know when I'm right behind them.

I got stuck behind a couple doing about 4mph on one of the flat desert trails by my house, and I hollered "mind if I pass?" 3 times before I finally just went around them. They got pissed and I heard the woman yell something about me getting a bell. If you didn't hear me yelling, what makes you think you'd hear a bell?

Some people are just in their own little world.

LOL I thought this thread was about the Santa Cruz Heckler, which was coincidently named after a guy who used to work part time at the shop where I also work part time.
*He was not amused when Santa Cruz went e-bike with his name. :D
