Cette sonnette est magnifique ! elle est sobre et fonctionne a merveille. Pas besoin d'autre chose
nice fit on race face bars, loud enough to be heard, without being obnoxious. light enough for the weight weenies.
My partner and I both got these bells for our bikes so it looks like our bikes are married too!
They're also nice bells.
Love this bell! The low profile, stealth and stylish design is the reason I bought it a second time. Which leads me to its one flaw: it is possible for the hammer to come off during normal operation. The hammer is only attached to the spring via a pressure fit (with some adhesive possibly). Same goes for how the spring is attached to the rest of the bell. Was riding down the trail ready to alert some pedestrians and the hammer flew off into the bushes. Could I get the premium version to avoid this issue in the future? Yeah, but I don't like the design as much as the classic. Just wish there was either A) a way to replace the hammer or B) a more solid connection between the hammer and the rest of the bell body. Great product though!
I had high hopes for this to be my solution to politely let people know I am approaching on shared paths, instead of loudly free hubbing at them. Unfortunately due to the brake and shifter cables near my road bike's stem and drop bars, the cable holders on the inside of the bell housing do not line up for me to easily reach thumb lever / ringer of the bell. It's too far down, meaning I need to reach awkwardly for it. So I can't easily ring the bell properly, and it just sort of has a dull thud or a short, muffled chime, and takes sometimes 3-5 attempts to ring properly, which by then is too late to be useful. Because of the weird angle I have to hit the bell ringer lever from, it sort of pulls it from the side and seems to have damaged or deformed the spring in some way. If there was some way to adjust where the cable holder is this wouldn't be a problem. I have spent a bit of time trying different ways of installing the bell and just can't seem to get it in a sweet spot that works as designed. For reference I have a a mechanical 105 shifter/ rim brake set up with Cannondale bars on a 2017 CAAD12.
