We think every mountain bike should be equipped with a bell. Period. No exceptions. The problem is, many bells look great on tricycle and out of place on a $3000 mountain bike. Not anymore. Spurcycle
launched the Ringer project on Kickstarter
and have sold almost 2000 bells, that's close to 500% of their original goal.
Spurcycle has managed to elevate the mundane bicycle bell to new heights by designing and manufacturing a bell that makes a powerful sound from a trim, precise form and they do it right here in the USA. It's priced at $35 on Kickstarter and it comes in two finishes: raw & stealth black. Orders taken now will deliver within sixty days of the completion of the Kickstarter campaign.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a test by the Mountain Bike Action wrecking crew as we have never had a chance to ring the Ringer. We pass along this information because the Ringer is one impressive-looking product that we thought you might want to check out.
