I saw the Spurcycle Better Bell in my local bike shop and thought, Wow, people really pay that much?, but it intrigued me so I bought a used one off EBay. These things are amazing and everything you've read is true. The mounting seems complex, but is actually really simple. Hook the loop and tighten the screw. Once you have it firmly in place, hit the trigger, and you get rewarded with a nice, crisp, clear BINGGGGG! that seems to last for 30 seconds. If the note isn't crisp and clear, adjust the tension a little on the mounting screw. After buying and installing that first used bell, I was so impressed I bought three more from Western Bike Works to have one on each bike in the house.
this blackburn rack was easy to install despite my original worries. has multiple adjustments to accommodate a nice range of bicycle sizes and tires. feels very secure when fully loaded. the rails are set perfectly far apart to easily remove panniers when you arrive at your destination. i was concerned with the racks weight but for what it provides in stability and carrying capacity it is right there with all of the other similar models. westernbikeworks.com still beats the competition with fast shipping and affordable prices. don't bother shopping elsewhere...this is your go to shop and product.
SKS makes some really well thought out products. This is one of them. This front fender is designed for bikes that may not take a large, permanently affixed fender. It attaches quickly, and allows for a wide range of adjustment. It is not a full coverage fender, but it will help keep the spray off your pants and shoes. I put this on my single speed so I could continue riding it in the winter.
