    Default KNOG Bell

    Riding the trails around DC, I find the use of a bell when passing often works better than "on your left". It seems to cut through the ear buds more effectively. I found this on last night at REI and used it this morning to great effect. It is very small and unobtrusive and seems to be very well made. It also comes in a black version. If you're in the market, consider it.

    Great bell for dropbar bikes, but just be aware that the dinger spring on the basic Oi gets sprung easily. The Oi Luxe looks much better. The Denfeld Cycling Superstore in Bad Homburg had the Oi in four colors and two sizes.

    Garbage, I'm afraid. The striker on mine basically exploded after approximately five commutes.

    Both of mine (basic version) have worked great for about a year now. Blends nicely into the handlebar and is thin enough to fit alongside the light mount on narrow track bars.

    Mine works ok...but the sound is soft and delicate that I'm not sure anyone can hear it. It does sound lovely though.

    I took mine off because it was too soft sounding. I like tone of them.

    Mine got all sprungish immediately, but both still work. It's a soft sound, but then I'm a soft-spoken, gentle sort of guy.

    Try the Knog Oi Luxe, about the same price as the Spurcycle and the same type of striker. I have a Knog Oi basic, a Spurcycle, and Crane E-Ne bells on different bikes. I'm going to look for the Knog Luxe and then decide which I like best.
