Bicycle bells are your way of communicating with others on the path. Far less confusing than the “On your Left”, the universal sound of a bell alerts pedestrians, cyclists and dogs of your presence. Each of these bells is featured because it has a pleasing tone, with brass providing the best ring. Some are louder than others, to the point that they can cut through a jogger’s headphones, but these bells can also scare people if taken unaware.
$27.99 is a lot for a bell. This Japanese made bell is worth it though. No plastic pieces and a long lasting tone.
$11.99 This is not a flashy bell, but the duet has a very nice ring, and the first or second tone can be easily muffled if you want to be less obtrusive. This is the bell I rely upon on my mountain bikes. Although the mount is plastic, I have yet to brake one. This is a strong endorsement, especially considering that several of the bikes these bells have been on have not lasted this long.
