Cycling safety is close to the forefront of every commuter cyclist’s mind. It’s important to know you can be seen and heard and adding a bell to your bike is a good place to start, especially if you plan to ride on shared use paths with pedestrians.
The first bicycle bell came out of Birmingham in the late 1800’s and was created by inventor John Richard Dedicoat. However these bells would often be quite clunky, heavy and difficult to operate with a thumb lever.
Fortunately modern bells comes in all shapes, sizes, colours and decibels. We’ve rounded up some of our favourites that will keep you safe and heard, even on those traffic heavy days in the city.
The Trigger Bell is an innovative design that allows cyclists to easily sound the bell without having to adjust hand position. This means you can change gear, turn and brake whilst ringing the bell.
The sleek and discrete design is constructed from a clear polished brass for a clearer ring, and a longer life than that of aluminium bells. The Trigger Bell fits a variety of bars from 22mm – 40mm.
