A bike bell is just a bell, right? Is it worth spending £20 on a new one? The OI bell not only looks and sounds different to traditional bells, but it also frees up space on your handlebars, which may be important to you when trying to cram as much technology on there as possible.
The OI does not take the traditional shape of a bike bell – it’s essentially an outer ring attached to the inner ring mount that is tightened around your handlebars. Originally funded on Kickstarter by Australian bike accessories company Knog, at first glance you would not even recognise it as a bell when mounted.
