I ride the greenways a bit so must deal with a large number of walkers. This is a good alert bell. I am sure it is not as load as some, but it is not large. Even using pliers I can't get it quite as snug as I would like. That said, this is probably the third incredible I have purchases, because I am happy with it overall plus I have multiple bikes.
They should really consider renaming this bell The People Mover. The Incredibell provides a clear, sharp ding that quickly gets people attention, whether they have an Airpod jammed in their ear, or are buried in their phone. The Incredibell has yet to fail at grabbing anothers attention, and has helped me avoid countless collisions.
The bell easily mounts to your bike with a ziptie like plastic strap. It fit my 31.8mm handlebar with a little room to spare. You can undo the strap if you pry the clasp up with a screw driver or knife. Also, the bell hammer is positionable for your best position.
Overall, great value, easy to use and adjust, extremely effective. A must have for a city biker!
It's not the loudest bell I've owned, but it's easy to attach to all my bikes that came without bells. Attachment strap is essentially a wide zip tie, so it fits anything though it's hard to get it super snugged up. The three I've used have stayed where I put them, so I'd say the fits-anything flexibility more than outweighs the fastening system.
Two of these went on my daughters' bikes, and they love them though they might be happier with something fancier instead of plain black. A good bell and a great buy.
If you ride in a densely populated area, a small bell like this helps with safer passing of pedestrians and other cyclists. No one ever responds to my voice, but the bell gets everyone's attention...The Incredibell's retention strap fits around wide bars (31.6mm wrapped in tape) with no trouble. Removing it is a little tricky-just depress the ratchet with a ball point pen tip. Hitting the bell lever is an awkward gesture from the top of the handlebars, it would be better ergonomically if the lever moved horizontally instead of vertically, so you could pull in with your thumb without rotating your wrist. Despite these little issues, the Incredibell is well worth its XX price tag.
Looked everywhere for a bell that would fit my larger diameter handlebars...this one is super adjustable, easy to mount in a variety of locations, and sounds great. The black color is nice as well. Great bell, and great buy.
Installs so easily, right where I want it on my handlebar. I bought two - 1 for my touring/commute bike and 1 for my road bike. For my road bike, I needed something super-lightweight and small (you know, the weight thing!). This fills the bill. No frills, just a great little bell.
It's ok. It really needs a rubber strip between bell & bars to keep it from rotating when you press the lever. The zip-tie-style attachment just doesn't tighten up that well. And the ding isn't so great either. Better than nothing, and not a $50 Spurcycle. Somewhere in between.
The bell itself is fairly loud, and it is easy to take on and off the handlebars. My only complaint is that the bell doesn't stay tightly in place. It keeps slipping so that it hangs upside down.
