Big Bar – Small Bell

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat to do when the entire bar bell inventory has only bells too small for your bicycle’s handlebars (or accessory rack)? No – you don’t go on the internet. You go to a local bicycle shop having the largest accessory inventory in the area – the Bike Barn in Cohoes.

On a recent visit to solve the above problem, there must have been 20-25 different bells from which to select. Amongst them was the Japanese-made “INCREDIBELL XL – A LITTLE BIGGER – A LITTLE LOUDER.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATo provide flexibility, it comes with a shim thus offering two sizes – or, in Army Quartermaster parlance, “too small, too large, and ridiculous.” A couple warps of electrical tape made the fit “just right.”

 

 

Other features of this bell include a pivoting dinger to position the thumb (or finger) lever in a convenient location. The standard screw mount features a metal threaded insert so the mounting will likely not be stripped.

List is $10.95 less a 10 percent discount for Bike Barn Meetup membership.

Ding Ding!
