I’ve become a fan of bike bells and though I currently only have one, I plan to add them to all of my bikes.  Bicycling magazine has just made my search for the next bike bell a little bit easier.  They’ve published a note called Our 16 Favorite Bike Bells.   What’s kinda neat is not only did they post photos of each one they also included a sound file so you can hear what they sound like.  Cute and helpful gimmick.

One critical note about bike bells, you want to avoid the ones that jingle/rattle

On an unrelated note, what is up with Bicycling magazine never putting dates on their articles?  Full disclosure – I am not a fan of Bicycling magazine, but still, what is up with never dating their online material?

Nonetheless click here to drop by and see and hear some bike bells for yourself.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
