My go to bell is the “Awareness Bell “. I saw it a few years back in Mt Bike Action. Beautiful and functional. So good I now have two.
Have to agree. I have the Awareness, Spur Cycle, and Timber bells.
The Awareness bell is way better than the Timber bell for trail riding. The switch on my Timber bell wore out after a few months of use and got replaced under warranty.
The Spur Cycle bell is nice too, but better for paved paths and commuting. When I ring it at elderly people on the trail they always stop and look ever where except at me because they think it is a bird. Go figure.
I’m a total fan of the Timber bell.
Had the original version (band on) but now gave fitted the bolt on version to both my Pugsley and my Karate Monkey Ops.
