I ride mainly in the multi-user community forest trail system. The undergrowth can be really tall and thick making it difficult to see far down the trail. I you are on the switchbacks or more technical stretch of trail it can a choice of reaching for your bell or keeping control of your bike. This bell rings freely and gives others a heads up before I even see them. I've gotten more smiles and people saying "I love your bell." The equestrians really like it and are much more friendly. I really like the option of turning the bell off when climbing or out on the road. It maybe could be a bit louder, but over all I strongly recommend this bell.
These fit well up to 25MM Continental on my Cervelo RS. I did have to file down the front fender arm attachment to clear the bottom of my shifter cables that do not run internal to the frame and while it is tight, clearance is there. Once the frame protector decals are on and you dial in fit, and adjustment of the fender arms, another big improvement, these are easy on, easy off and pretty great overall. I am happy with them, plenty low in the rear. A nice option in the rainy NW.
I would say that overall I'm happy with the purchase. I think the price is definitely a little high. Only other complaint is you have to wait to do multiple rings in a row. When you try to hit it twice it gets muffled because it's still vibrating from first ring. The tone is pretty unique and I think a friendlier way to signal than all the other bells I have used. The look of the bell is sweet and installation was a piece of cake. Overall, I'd recommend as long as you are ok spending a little more than the average bell.
This mirror is a great and I don't want to ride my commute without it. It's very easy to attach to your handlebars with a flat head screwdriver...it kind of works like a zip tie that you can tighten and loosen. Even though you cut the excess off, you can still remove and replace the mirror as long as the bars are a similar diameter or smaller.
I use it on an upright bar (Nitto Choco) and it's pretty good for side visibility. I do use a helmet mirror at the same time...the Ultralight mirror I'm reviewing does make things seem a little farther away than they are (parabolic mirror), so it's nice to be able to double check something behind me with a helmet mirror that magnifies a little.
