The first thing is this page lists 2 models of the Incredibell, but they are different sizes. The solid brass versions (called Duet) do not fit a normal adult road bike. Of the 5 pictures, the 2 on the right called "Gold Duet" and "Silver Duet" color are the smaller brass version, these 2 will NOT fit a normal adult bike. The 3 on the left labelled "Black", "Silver", and "Brass" will fit a normal adult road bike.

I bought the "Silver Duet" and it has a nice sound and looks high quality but does not fit a normal adult road bike. Then I returned it and bought the "Black" and it fits my bike, but isn't quite as loud and doesn't seem as nice as the brass one.

Unfortunately the Amazon page is confusing and it seems like the description would have made it more clear that there are two very different models here, not just different in color.

No, this isn't a plug for My Ding-A-Ling, though Chuck Berry's only US number-one single on the pop charts is a funny rock classic. It's a review for the Mirrycle Incredibell, and you can make yourself heard on the road or on a trail with this one.

It's light, little, and loud, it's easy to mount to almost any handlebar, and only takes up about 1/4" of your prized bar space. The ingeniously-designed pivoting 'dinger' allows this bell to be used in a variety of handlebar positions, as it can be rotated 360 degrees.

The bell has a clean, crisp ring. You can control the sound by giving a polite little ding or an attention-getting sharp ring by controlling the thumb action on the dinger, which is quite easy to master. It's quite recognizable as a bicycle bell, and isn't confused to something else. It's easily loud enough for signaling pedestrians and other cyclists. It's also great for warning deer (they run), but not for wandering cows (which just don't heed any kind of warning).

Pros:

* Small, compact, and it sounds good.
* Good looking, light, easy to use, work
* Loud sound for its size, has a pleasant tone.
* Quite reasonable in price, excellent value.

Cons:

* Not loud enough to effectively warn vehicles in traffic.
* Not loud enough to warn idiots hooked up to a loud iPod with headphones.

Some state laws require cyclists to issue an audible warning when overtaking a pedestrian. That can be a vocal warning, but yelling at walkers and runners doesn't cut it, so a bell is the ideal solution. It should be noted that this bell (or any other one) isn't very effective on most city bike trails when the walker/jogger is hooked up to a loud iPod and wearing headphones, lost in a world of his or her own.

If you think you need a slightly louder version, there's the slightly larger Mirrycle Incredibell XL, which might do the job. But if you feel that you need to issue a louder warning that this, just go all out and get a 115 dB Delta Airzound Bike Horn, which is about as loud as the horn on an 18-wheeler... seriously.

Note: there are a number of small bells out there that look similar to the Incredibell. Many of these are either poorly made, or have a dinger spring that rusts out in record time. There are some decent copies, but at the low price of the real thing, why not just spring for the best.

This little Incredibell is one of the best functional gadgets that you can get for your bike, and it also makes a great (and well-appreciated) for any cyclist gift.

Now play your Dinger, and sing along with me...

My Ding-A-Ling

My Ding-A-Ling, My Ding-A-Ling,
I'm going to play with My Ding-A-Ling!

I've had one of these little beasts for almost 10 years on my mountain bike. It's loud and very simple. I'm buying another for a new bike.

This is a nice bell, but MAKE SURE you check the handlebar size on your bike. It doesn't even come close to fitting around the bar on my bike (A new Giant road bike). My understanding is that most newer bikes are using handlebars with a much larger diameter than older bikes, and this bell won't fit on them.

This is the third bell I've purchased in an attempt to find one I like that also doesn't ring when I don't want it to. One bike bell I bought would ring at every bump. This bell was about half of the size I thought it was going to be, which is great. Even when I jump (bunny hop) over things with my bike, it doesn't ring; it only rings when I want it to. I especially like how it's available in three different colors. The chrome/silver one perfectly matches my bike. It blends in so that you don't even notice it unless you're up close. It's also the ideal volume for a bike bell. Perfect!

I'm not sure who this bell is designed for, but the bell mount is WAY too small for what I would have considered "standard" handlebars. I have a 2011 Trek and this mount is too small by nearly an inch! There is no way to make it fit. I think this might fit a kids bicycle.

I managed to mount mine to a flashlight I have on my bike, so it works, but is not in an ideal position.

Otherwise it works great. Dings nice and loud and people often thank me for the warning as I pass. I like it a lot.

I ride the often-crowded streets and urban trails of Seattle, so I need a bell that just works. This bell is so good at that that I would have gladly paid twice as much for it!

Pros: small, easy to mount, robust adjustable striker, pleasing sound that carries without being obnoxious

Cons: none so far!

I've experimented with at least 5 different brands/models of bells, and this is the best.

For me, the most important task of a bell is that it ring when I want it to, and not when I don't. Surprisingly, other bell designs fall short, using plastic instead of a spring in the striker (soon loses ability to ring at all), or *only* a spring (rings every time you ride over a bump!).

The Incredibell uses a simple-yet-durable spring+hinge design for its striker, along with a clever rotating mount. Thus, you can adjust the angle of the striker to best fit your hand position on the bar, and can modulate the ring volume by adjusting how far you pull back on the striker before release.

This is an excellent safety aid that should be purchased by all riders.

The bell has a good ring to it and is easily heard at a distance while on the road. The mechanics are very simple though, you basically pull back the thumb hammer and release. Works good enough. It is very adjustable which is nice for positioning it just where you want it.

The Mirrycle Incredibell Original Bicycle Bell...

The ingeniously-designed pivoting 'dinger' allows this bell to be used in a variety of handlebar positions, as it can be rotated 360 degrees.
