Ok for the Price – Bicycle Mounted Bell With Compass Reviews

posted by joedoe on 10/19/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Compass works well though it shows south and not north
- Bell is reasonably loud
- Blue metallic paint looks nice and is done well
Cons:
- The bell mechanism is too simple.
- The bell striker can come off and eventually will get lost
Other:
The weakest link on this is the bell mechanism. Basically it is just a plastic thumb piece that sits on a spring and strikes the metallic bell. It rotates around a bit too easily and it can come off and get lost.
Bottomline:
Good quality for the price but it would be perfect at around $2 instead of $3. Overal the only problem is that the striker/thumb piece for the bell can come off.
