This is neat, nice looking, good sounding, excellent value bell. Only problem for me was that (like some other reviewers) I found it is too small for my handlebars and had to give it to a friend (who also found it was too small for hers!). So I would argue that it doesn't fit most bikes as the description states. My bike is a fairly old Raleigh mountain bike. In case it's helpful, the circumference of the fitting is about 6.5cm (and you could allow a little bit extra if you don't have the screw all the way in) so measure your handlebars first!

I did quite a bit of looking around first before buying this bell. I thought my handle bars were quite thick and was worried that this wouldn't fit. I measured my handle bars as having a diameter of 22mm and whilst there was nothing in the product description to suggest if this would fit some of the other reviews here suggested it might. I have to say it did fit but only just. I doubt I could have squeezed it on anything bigger. Other than that the bell is functional. "loud & clear" and was delivered very quickly - next day.

Loud, sturdy, and looks good. Worth buying. (To the reviewer who said it was quiet: try loosening the grip, if it's too tight the bell will get muted.)

The cycle tracks I use to commute to work are used by pedestrians who prefer them to the paths that run alongside them - they can walk 4 abreast then instead of 2 and the toddlers have more room to run around? I have to weave around and I need a loud bell to get them to make a little room for me to pass. I took this out of the package and the 'ping' was very loud indeed for such a tiny thing. I have a couple of other bells but this is by far the loudest. However when I fitted it to the handle bar it sounded much more dull. I took it off and it was fine again. Basically when you tighten this enough to be secure, it becomes much quieter. I fiddled with it but couldn't get to the bottom of why this happens, bit of a design issue I think. Other reviewers have mentioned this. I got round it by fitting it only loosely and used glue to hold it firm. 4 stars for the noise it makes, 1 lost for the fitting issue. Still recommended if you can get the fit sorted.
UPDATE- after 2 months the hammer snapped off sending the bell to the bin. I have 2 others that are still ok but would no longer recommend this.

Cost - less than a fiver - excellent.
Shipping - following day, from Yframediscounts - excellent.
Materials - Steel bell, heavy-weight plastic components, hex key fitting - also excellent.

Representing a very high level of value for money - this bell is built like a tank, with a very strongly sprung hinge mechanism. I bought this to replace the one that came with my bike, 'cos it simply wasn't loud enough to be of any real use. This bell has a piercingly loud (even grabbed a driver's attention being a d**k, closing me down in heavy traffic!) sound, and will shift pedestrians off your cycle path from an impressive distance, long before you have to scream or throw things at the dawdling creatures!

Unless you're going to spend a lot more money, there's no better bell in my opinion, this does exactly what it's supposed to, but better than you expected! Get these for your kids bikes, get 'em for your own. I for one, am very happy with this product. I was going to buy an expensive one, come pay day, but honestly, I don't feel I need to.

I bought this bell to fit on my trek road bike, only to find out my handlebar was too big for the bell to fit securely. (Note the handlebar seems average size)

The bell fits but needs to be adjusted each time I ride since the screw does not fit. It's loud and clear as pedestrians simply move to the side..however, I seem to recall seeing an identical bell in Wilkonson for £1 so I should have tried that before hand.

I've had this for well over year (and about 2000 miles) now and the news isn't good. It started out fine, but over time the pinger (the bit that strikes the bell) starts to rest on the bell and so it stops ringing cleanly. If you file the surface of the pinger (or whatever it's called :-) a little to make a gap it's then good to go again, but...

It doesn't ring cleanly in the pouring rain -- I think the water bridges the all-too-small gap between the bell and its mount.

And it doesn't break well - I just came off the bike and the pinger (that dang pinger again :-) broke off as my hand left the handle-bars, but it as it broke off it left a sharp point of plastic which cut the back of my hand quite badly. I'll post a picture.

All in all -- it's not reliable at making a noise (which is bad news for a bell!), and when it breaks what's left behind is sharp. I won't be buying another.

Lasted only a couple of days before the "hammer" used to strike the bell broke off. Same for both ordered so I would strongly advise not buying them.

Its a bell.

It works.

Obvious looking at it now, but I didn't realise when buying it, the top centre of the bell is a silver finish.
There are all black ones about, which for the anal among us might be preferred.

I retract the above statement about it working.
Original review was May 2012, it is now November 2012.
The bell began to go "De" instead of "ding" a few months ago and I had to rotate the body of the bell to get it to ring properly.
About 4 weeks ago the hammer fell of it.
Useless.
Might have been unlucky with this product, but how difficult is it to manufacture a bell?
Its not the cheapest on the market either.
I have a £2.00 one from the local bike shop which is as good so far.

I read all the reviews and measured the circumference of his handlebars to make sure it fitted, because he told me he needed a bell on his new bike and I wanted to surprise him. He's now known as 2 bells because neither of us noticed his new bike came fitted with a bell! This bell fits his bike but the ding is pretty poor as is the fitted one - it seems to be a standard modern day sound but we wanted an old fashioned 1960s loud ring i.e a proper bell. If you know where we can get one that fits a Dawes adult bike please let us know.
