Best and loudest bell pound for pound. I love the quality behind spur cycle and initially was hesitant to spend the money for a bell but it has come in handy on rides and is loud for the size!
The Chris king edition with the red hammer was a nice touch to match my bike. Otherwise no difference functionality wise between this and the regular spurcycle bell
This bell is at the pinnacle of all bells. First, the sound is amazing: loud but not obnoxious, crystal clear and resonates seemingly forever. Esthetically, it's museum worthy. Functionally, it simply works every time effortlessly. It took me forever to pull the trigger due to the high price but glad I did. If you have a bike you love, treat it w this one of a kind bell.
While in the relatively more expensive side of bike bells, this one is near perfect - great sound. I commute on a trail and walkers seem much more receptive to the bell versus a verbal on your left. Great American made feel and heritage behind the bell. Ive put them on all of my bikes
It's crazy how loud this tiny, little bell is. I'm almost embarrassed to use this because it's that loud. I spend most my time riding on the road and find that I don't use it all that much as my hands are usually on the hoods when in traffic. When on the trail though I'm ringing this bell like there's no tomorrow to let other trail users know I'm approaching.
The bike paths are fairly crowded in the summer weekends and lots of folks use headphones. It seems 'on your left' only makes people stop and turn left. The bell is a clear signal, it's loud enough to alert most and the resonance is fantastic.
My wife bought a Spurcycle bell when she got her new bike last year. I liked hers so much I decided to get one for myself. It can be mounted facing verticals or horizontally so it doesnt stand out on my nice road bike. Great quality and ring tone
I love these bells. I have as many as I have bicycles. I bought the first for my commuter bike. I found it so handy to have that I put them on all my bikes. They are barely noticeable but clearly audible, even in city traffic and crowded shared-use paths. They are easy to install with clips for small and large diameter handle bars. They are also virtually indestructible.
Last two bells I've had were too quiet and made with plastic parts that failed. I heard this bell and had to have one, and it is made of real metal with a cool resonance. You can dampen the ring with a finger for a subtle respectful ring, or really ding it to be heard over someone's death metal mix. Kinda spendy but I'm sick of buying stuff that won't stand up for the distance.
This bell is excellent! Once you hear this bell you'll agree! Ever had to replace a bell from over use or plastic becomes brittle over the years? Ever broke a cheap one? These are the reasons to get this bell. Headphoners can even hear this bell.
I bought the even more expensive black version for my super commuter 2017 Kona Roadhouse. It is a perfect accessory for this bike. Should last this lifetime and the next. No regrets.
