Howdy, Fritz--

Call me a curmudgeon, but I don't think bells make bikes happy--they make them annoying.
I don't like bells, but, alas, I need one. I've moved to a place where the MUVs have signs that say, "Cyclists must give warning," or some such silliness. That means, instead of simply staying to the right accepting that there are other, faster path users, pedestrians, joggers and plugs of cyclists take up the whole path, expecting others to issue directions. I'm glad roads don't work that way, or the din of horns would be unbearable.
So, I need a bell. In fact, I need two--one for my daughter's trail-a-bike. She'll enjoy using it.
Thanks,
Ron Georg.

I'm riding along
Need to pass but hate to yell
Much prefer the bell

Bruce said...

Guess what! I got a fever! And the only prescription is more "bike bell"!

Reese said...

Is it possible to hear this bell before I commit to trying to win it? One should not just rush all willynilly into such an important decision.

Cyclin' Missy said...

If I win, I think I'll give the bell to a noobie bike commuter. Fun!

Dave Moulton said...

I suppose if I don’t win I get the NoBell Prize :)

Mark said...

My new fixed gear commuter needs a bell.

Jamie said...

i would love a bike bell for my new bike!

Erik said...

Oh boy do I ever need a bike bell.

UltraRob said...

Now that my bike commute is on a fairly heavily used path, I need a bell. There are too many walkers and runners using earphones and seem to think they're the only ones on the trail.

Ring Ring.

I'm just happy with the nice pictures of bikes & their riders, but if I can get a bell, all the better. My little girl just started getting into the Trail-A-Bike, and would love to have some way to make noise. The picture above makes me think I need to take her riding over in Santa Cruz.

rang. rang.

Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angel's just got his wings.

GhostRider said...

Why not? One can never have too many bike bells!

I really need a bell for riding here in Portland, OR.

This would be great to win!

My bike bell got hosed in a recent crash. It said "I ♥ my mom." I was very said to see it die. A new bell would bring a wee smile to my face.

Rocky Balboa: Ah, just keep punchin', Apollo... you want to ring the bell?
Apollo Creed: Alright... Ding Ding.

Steve said...

Ring-a-ling! A free bell sounds swell.

Edwin said...

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST!

I want a free bicycle bell, and the more people who enter, the less chance I'll have of getting one. ;)

Congratulations to the winners -- I loved all of your comments about bike bells! Among the commenters here the winners are:
