Stuff We Like: Crane Brass Bell

Who doesn’t love a Japanese brass bell? This is the larger size from Crane that is plenty loud — 50% louder than the little brass bells that aren’t quite loud enough, and louder even than your typical “ding – ding” bells from your LBS. Every bike should have one.

Stuff We Like: El-Duke Degreaser

I’ve been asking around, looking for a better degreaser, one that’s non-toxic but really works. A few people suggested El-Duke, so I ordered up a bottle and gave it a try. Dribbled it on, let it work, rinsed with water, and voilà — clean parts. Couldn’t be simpler. And because El-Duke is soy-based, it does its work without stinking up the place. Good stuff.
