Not your ma's bell.
Instead of clamping to your handlebars, the Portland Design Works Alexander Graham Brass Bell replaces a 10mm spacer on your steerer tube stacks for a clean, seamless install. The Brass Bell's polished finish looks great on contemporary classics, and its chime isn't irritating, but loud enough to alert others of your presence.

Neat Product - not for me
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I LOVE the thoughtful name and simple aesthetic PDW put into this piece. I highly recommend it for commuting applications, but it wasn't what I was looking for on my mountain bike - I should have known better. This was a classic case of wishful thinking.
This bell was a bit bigger than I was expecting (see photo below). So much so that I ended up returning it.
I was looking for something smaller, a little lighter and more streamlined for my mountain bike.
That being said, this is a really cool commuter tool. The ding is loud, clear and tuneful. Cool product, even though it wasn't quite what I was looking for.
Not the size in comparison to a quarter.
