Had one on my MTB and my wife's bike. They both worked fine for a month or two, but soon the little spring holding the ringer gets stretched or bent and just won't work anymore. I really wanted this to work given it's small size, but no dice.
Simple, low profile bell that mounts easily to your handlebars. More importantly, the sound is pleasant and it carries well. This is a great solution to alerting people of your presence on a bikeway without causing a confrontation. In addition, the tone of the bell seems to cut through ambient noise or someone using ear buds, so you get your point across without being the angry yelling man. Or woman.
Hides away perfectly on my handlebars. Don't even notice it, which is exactly what I wanted. I preferred to not have a bell that was a bright brass, or even black, the kind of dome of a bell that's as inconspicuous as a dogs balls, on my bike. It fit the bill there...but it is lacking in decibels, actually quite soft in bell ringer standards. But seems to catch the attention of typical millennial girl walkers zombified staring at their cell phones. Yup...I said that
A Classic Case of Form vs. Function. This bell is beautiful to look at & creates a beautiful , mellow, lingering tone. Perfect for a Zen Retreat, perhaps. But as a practical bell to alert people of my presence this bell doesn't do the job. No one hears it! By contrast, for less I can get a steel bell that dings brightly & loudly & helps keep me & others safe. Too bad, as I really wanted to use this bell.
This neatly designed urban bell compliments any bike and gives you a unique sounding warning to others on streets, trails, or wherever. My wife rides nothing but trails and loves the bells' sound and loudness.
This bell is plenty loud enough for typical bike trail use. Maybe not enough for city riding.
The installation is very clean. I barely notice it. It blends into the black of my stem and bars.
Bought this bell for my wife who likes everything to match colour wise ( pink ). She had the bell on her bike for about 1 week before she noticed that the striker was not hitting the bell. The striker we found was bent too far back to hit. I managed to bend the spring and striker back into place.
The bell looks nice but is far too delicate and I doubt it will last.
I bought this bell a couple years ago but it was damaged in a crash (wet leaves on concrete patch!) I replaced it with an expensive premium bell but was disappointed with the sound and action. I should have stayed with this bell! It sounds good loud enough when you need it and is streamlined and unobtrusive.
This bell is so discrete I forget I have it. For me, it's just the right volume to alert hikers on wooded trails. They usually jump out of their shoes when I come up behind them even though I try hard not to scare them. It's more quiet in the woods so the volume is great, however I could imagine it getting drown out on a really busy street, but maybe not. It also has a distinctive ring so it stands out among other noise.
Small bell that does not take up a lot of space on the handlebars. Not the loudest but it does the job. The cutout for cables is a nice feature but can be a little difficult with cross levers on smaller bars.
I need a bell occassionally on the bike trail as a friendly warning to other riders and hikers. I didn't want something large and ugly on my highend road bike nor something too loud. I really like design of this bell both mechanically and aesthetically. If you didn't know better you would not even know I had a bell on my bars.
