I was thinking the two-tone bells but thanks for the suggestion, I didn’t know bar end bells existed!
I have a Crane Riten which sounds nice and cheerful. Not sure if that's two-tone. I listened to some
Youtube comparisons before deciding what to get.
Before Brexit, I'd have said this one: https://www.dutchbikebits.com/80mm-ding-dong-bell (has a recording of what it sounds like on the page), but AFAIK they no longer ship to the UK.
This looks like it might be the same item: https://www.e-bikesdirect.co.uk/accessories/safety-equipment/traditional-dutch-style-bicycle-ding-dong-bell
Otherwise I like the sound and sustain of my https://www.lionbellworks.co.uk/ brass pinger.
The classic mini Crane bell is always a good one, IMO that and the larger one are second in line for 'bell I'd reccommend' after the £50 job.
There are some OK ones around £10-12 bracket from various renamer's, which work fine, best to get one out of a shop as they vary in output quite a bit.
I like the Tokyo rotating bell from above, but it is a bit jangly on bumpy terrain.
I also caved and bought a spur. It sounds lovely, lots of sustain. Having used a cheaper version, it's 25* better for sure.
You have a Jellibell?
That's a shame, I was hoping they'd avoid that issue.
That's what I was looking for - nice one!
