Bike Bell Central

Calhoun Bells

Calhoun Cycle has the largest selection of bike bells I’ve seen – they currently list 28 models to choose from! To help sort through the selection, they’ve created an audio/video page where you can watch/listen to each bell in action. Fun stuff!

    I didn’t see my favorite – the basic black Incredibell.
    I have this bell on my commuter and it’s great – small, discrete, very loud, and easy to set up next to my left grip so I can ring it without moving my hand from the grip.
    Now, if I could just get the pedestrians to take off their headphones…

    They also have a great selection of mirrors– most of them modified Mirrycle mirrors with different kinds of mounts.

    I was just thinking on my ride in to work today that you should do a post on bells :-)

    I, like bongobike, have an increibell. I ride much of my commute on shared bike/ped/dog path, so being able to let folks know I’m coming is important. I like the incredibell for its simplicity, as well as the ease of creating a gentle “excuse me, I’m coming by you” ring or a “get your damn dog under control” one.

    I’d reserve the air horns for heavy traffic.

    Another vote for the incredibell. I do love the sound of brass, though. One for each thumb. Air zorn for homicidal taxis and bears.

    My personal favorite bell is the Ohgi Japanese Electronic Bell. Very hard to find but is available here: http://store.somafab.com/ohjaelbe.html

    My favorite use of my bell is to get the attention of the people in front of me at a traffic light who miss the light change due to texting.

    Ummm…I was referring to the Mirrycle bike mirrors, not the Incredibell bells, which I think are made by the same company. Calhoun takes Mirrycle mirrors, modifies their mounts and calls them Evo mirrors (Evo M, Evo Lite, Evo Sport). I have a pair of Evo Lites on my Rans Formula recumbent and I love them.
