I also use a bell for most rides.  I've got a Timber! mountain bike bell, which has a fantastic switch feature.  I love the quiet and solitude of mountain biking, so if...
A major hurdle for mountain biking at night here in the Chicago suburbs is that all of our trails are located in parks and preserves owned by the city/park district/forest preserve district/etc. All of these locations have hours that are usually dawn to dusk, making night mountain biking not exactly legal.
