    Knog is running a Kickstarter for a bike bell and it’s gone absolutely nuts. They were looking for like $15,000 but in just a week they’ve already raised $300,000! I have bells on all my bikes but this one is like leaps and bounds beyond anything I’ve seen. At first I thought the prices were too high but then I realized they’re in Australian dollars. 🙂 So, about $19 for the cheapest bell and about $33 for the titanium one. I love how low profile these things are!

    Interesting.  I’m a noisy hub vs bell guy though.

    Very nicely done! I was gonna sign up, but then I saw they aren’t shipping until August (at the earliest). It doesn’t look like they need my help reaching their goal, so I’ll wait until I can get one at my local shop.

    That is a really interesting design.  I like how it is very small and low profile.  I may have to get a few of these.

    Looks sweet…how does it sound???

    Neat idea, but I think I’ll still opt for my novelty horns – I find them a lot more fun, especially during races.

    who runs a bell on their mountain bike?

     

    I have never seen the need for one on my mountain bike.

      Ding, ding, ding! I do. 🙂

      I have bells on all my bikes and I use the bells often and in many different situations:

      • Giving hikers and bikers a heads up when I’m approaching from behind
      • Offering a friendly “hello” when approaching people from the front (99% of people smile when they hear a bike bell)
      • Signaling to lost riders. On our group ride at night we tend to get separated every now and then and we use our bells to find each other on the trail.
      • Offering encouragement at races

      It seriously feels weird to ride a bike without my bell. I even bring one with me for rental bikes when I travel.

      all valid reasons I have never thought of … thanks for sharing. I have one on my commuting bike but not my mountain bike.

    Headed to Toronto this summer, and all of the locals say that bells are required on bikes in the city….I have no problem putting a bell on mine. Esp since it can come back off if need be…
