review: Disney bicycle bell

 

Pros:

  • louder than cheap bells standard bells that the bike shops put on.
  • works in the rain/when wet.
  • Secure metal dual screw mount.

Cons

  • the bell lever is flimsy and is plastic and will flex/twist.
  • takes up a bit of space, and the bell is low so if you have narrow bars and, suspension lever or dropper post levers installed, you will have to mount it further in.
  • needs to be mounted side next to the gear shifter, to get fast and easy reach without lifting your hand.

Verdict:

OK bell for an OK price, But I think thy need to improve the flimsy plastic lever.

 

 

Review: 2015 BBB-11 LOUD & CLEAR Bell

 

Pros

  • The spring system work very well, and never get stuck
  • the plastic will not bend and touch the metal bell it self so it will always stay loud.

 

Cons:

  • When wet , you can barely hear it.
  • the plastic spacers do not work, so when you have the screw tightened all the way it will slide off the plastic spacers, it did slide of when i was doing some trail riding with my bike,it came off. if you buy this bell you have to mount it in the middle/wide part of the handle bar, witch is very uncomfortable way to use it, or sue some rubber spacers instead, i had some laying around. so i did that and it seems to be secure.
  • cant adjust the angle, but the bells you can do that with are usually very bad
  • when it was -1 Celsius the bell was not loud
  • Bit less loud than the hamburger and Disney bells
  • When wet the bell is not loud.

Conclusion:

Not recommended,I later bought Disney Winnie The Pooh Bicycle Bell,which is as lout,but works in rain.
