The hamburger bell long term review

I needed some bells fast, so I got the best bells my local G Sport store had, it was one hamburger bell, and Disney bells, but the Disney bells are more durable due to metal construction apart from the levers, but the hamburger bell ahs plastic base, metal cover with glued on plastic hamburger bread.

The cover is pushed on, the white part you see is made of plastic and is pushed on the metal rod.

The lever is plastic, it had play in all directions.

after more than a year of use, the plastic rod broke/snapped, which held a cog, which was not a surprise, plastic is the wrong material to use for this application.

IF this bell was made of 100% metall if would be a good bell.

Cons:

  • Mostly plastic construction
  • axle holding the plastic cog snaps off
  • takes up a lot of space on the handle bar

 

Pros

  • Due to the closed in design, the bell works in snow, and rain and when touched.
  • easy to install
  • louder than the bells that usually the stores mounted on the bikes.

Review: Weldtite TF2 Extreme Wet Lube

Time tested:  1 winter & many summer days

TF2 Extreme Wet Lubricant (75ml) thumbnail

Make sure you wipe off access because this lube creates ”spider webs”.

Pros:

  • No matter if it was wet or dry it worked great.
  • works great in all conditions, I have ridden in -9 Degrees Celsius, the lube does not attract dirt, and if there will be dirt it wipes off easily.
  • The long tip makes it easy to lube the rear dérailleur.

Cons:

So far none

Conclusion:
