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!
Well hello there, searched "bell" to try n' find an opinion on this bar end bell. Seems weird to me that its only Canyon have come up with one.
Wanted for a touring bike that has bar space at a premium to figured this was the answer.
Still in use/going strong?
Mirrycle have had some in the past
Look at the bike, there's a dirty great air compressor on the rear rack, clip's edited to hide it, 100% bullshit advert:
I ordered one of those for my nephew. They're $4 and they chirrup or beep, of course there's no train horn.
