Bike Bells

Recommended Posts

I bought my first ever bell yesterday. $9.50 to become legal. My phone on low volume has more dB. Totally legal and totally useless.

Just get a small bell from your local bike shop like I did and then mount it on the underside.

 

I had to buy a new one recently - it's tiny. My old one broke as I was ringing it too hard when crossing Queensbridge St in Melbourne at the big crossing on Southbank.

$5 to be legal. I bought one for the other half, but he refuses to put it on his bike. He bitches about getting a fine I'm not going to listen.

I can yell a lot louder than any far-king bell! So the idea that they are a safety requirement kind of 50s thinking.

 

Though it does avoid the novel concept of human communication.

30+ years without a bell and suddenly I feel the urge to be street legal.

 

So I'm $31 poorer (shipping included) and I get a bell probably in August. An impulse puchase with delayed gratification.

Me too. I keep asking myself why I bother backing kick starter projects.

 

Edit. This may be harsh but I've never had one campaign that came even close to the proposed deadline stated at the start...

 

I feel my money is better spent waiting for the final product and spending a few extra dollars.
