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.
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.
