I decided on the Crane based on the overwhelming positive reviews I found on multiple bicycling forums, and I am not disappointed. The bell is very high quality. It is small enough to not look terribly out of place on a modern road bike. It looks great. And most importantly, it is very loud.
A loud ringing DING! can be had with a mere 1/4" or so pull of the lever, and it is even louder if you pull it all the way back. My wife covered her ears in reaction to my zealous DINGing upon first opening the box.
This little bell puts a smile on my face and makes me excited to get out and ride!
The tone of this bell is quite nice. I also like the matte black finish and the overall aesthetic.
The problem with this bell is that the striker is unreliable. If you draw it back all the way, it sometimes makes a clanking noise rather than a nice clear ring. This can also happen if you're quickly moving your hand from the hoods/drops to the tops, and you accidentally mute the bell with the side of your hand.
This makes it worse at panic ringing, which is the most critical time for a bell to function. I'm used to quickly mashing the striker on my Incredibell to get people's attention, and the Crane E-ne isn't as good in this role. The Incredibell is also mounted on a plastic ring, which prevents accidental hand muting.
I think I'll get used to this over time, but from a purely functional point of view, I think it's worse than the Incredibell and at twice the price. Sounds nice though.
My one complaint is that it is difficult to ring softly. The hammer won't hit the bell if you try to flick it gently, so there is no good way to quietly ring it.
