BIke Bell Bike Buying Guide

Supporting you to get the right bike bell… so you can be and be heard when you ride.

Where do you ride?

Bike bells are important if you ride in environments where there are other users. Pedestrians, other cyclists and motorists. You need to use a bike bell to be heard to ensure safety for yourself and others on bike paths, shared paths, dual direction mountain bike trails, blind corners, the road and at times so motorists can hear you.

What type of riding do you do?

There are bike bells more suited to different types of riding. On a mountain bike you do not want a bell that protrudes as it could get in the way and be easily damaged so consider a sleek minimalist bell – the Knog Oi. The commuter, urban, bike path rider is more suited to traditional type of bells.

The age and skill of the rider

If the rider is young or a beginner consider if they can still control their steering to operate the bell.  Can you position a traditional bell so they don’t become challenged with their steering. You can get bells with remote triggers that can be fitted right where their thumb is – so there steering doesn’t become compromised –  the super fun Mini Hornet with its 25 sounds.

Will it fit your handlebar circumference

Determine where you have room on your handlebars for a bell and where you can use it safely. Understand the circumference of the handlebars. Some bells come in different sizes like the Knog Oi and others like our Hand Painted Bells are one size fits most

Quality

There are varying quality of bells. Cheaper bells do not last as long and it will be more important to keep them out of the rain.  Make sure you are happy with the sound they make.
