We’re always down for made in the USA goodness, especially when it goes to a good cause! Spurcycle just released another limited edition bell, featuring a sapphire-anodized clapper. They’ll be donating $25 from each bell sold to raise money for two community non-profits: San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and Bend Bikes. These are in stock now for $69.00 at Spurcucle.
If you have a MTB with a crowded cockpit but really want to ride with a bell then check out the new Spurcycle Compact Bell, designed specifically to fit on your bars next to your brake levers, shifter pods, or dropper lever. While the OG Spurcycle bells have a clamp width of 22mm, these new compact bells come in with a 9mm clamp footprint, fitting on even the most crowded bars.
These bells are made in Taiwan, so the price is cheaper than the OG MUSA bell, coming in at $39. Check out more at Spurcycle.
If you’ve ever used a Spurcycle bell on a MTB, then you know how difficult it can be to properly locate it between you grips, brakes, dropper and shifter modules. The Belltower alleviates that. Acting like a spacer lift, the Belltower puts the Spurcycle bell a bit higher up… They’re $6.95, made in the USA and in stock now at Lindarets.
Yesterday I received my Spurcycle bell in the mail and immediately installed it on my Geekhouse Woodville. With all the madness of SxSW enveloping Austin, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
The packaging is well thought out, the bell is simple, all metal (save for some rubber bushings) and the black finish almost disappears on a my handlebars. I know a bell might not seem like that big of a deal, but I am stoked on how great they look.
Now I just need to put one on the MTB…
They’re in the process of shipping all their (10,000) Kickstarter backers at the moment, but there is a pre-order going on now with a spring ship estimate. Head over to Spurcycle now to reserve one!
