    Looks about as cool as a bell can get...

      Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

      Will only fit on mountain bike, hybrid, last century road bikes, etc smaller handlebars. Will not fit on oversized road bars. It does fit on aerobars... Compass looks cool, but doesn't work, only points "North" to the metal handlebars.

          This bell works great. Only issue is that it doesn't quite fit on my handlebar, so it isn't screwed on and I just take it off if my bike is parked where parts might "walk off". You can't beat the price, and it does encourage pedestrians to make room for me on the bike path.

            Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

            I read the reviews and already knew the cons on this item (compass ineffective) but wanted an inexpensive bell so I could signal my approach to fellow bicyclist who may actually be riding at a slower speed than myself (older women and some younger children. Mounts easy enough and a good deal just don't expect the "GPS" function to work right.

            screw can't be changed - too short

                Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

                the screw that fits the bell to bicycle is not replaceable and too short for some handlebars - no hardware store, spare parts in bike shops, etc you would be very lucky to find replacement at all. Perhaps after more bike shops, hardware stores that have hard to find screws…
                if it fits Good!

                      I wanted to add a bell and thought for a few bucks how could I go wrong (my mistake). The bell works ok, it's a single ding with every flick of the thumb, i.e. one flick = 1 ding. The flicker is adjustable.

                      The compass will point towards metal objects like a shifter or cable, so north is always in front of me no matter what direction I go. The compass works if it is not mounted on the bike but I could not mount it were it would work.

                      There are better bells out there.

                        It's a bell. Compass didn't seem to point North but I didn't get it for a GPS system. It's half the price (or less) of any other bell you can find on the market, so it's a great value. The bell is very loud and easy to use. It is not a pleasant sound- it's very metallic and harsh. But then again it's to warn pedestrians. I'm very pleased with this functional study bell- it's a metal cylinder with a metal lever that hits against it- I would imagine it would be fairly hard to break.

                              This bell has a compass. I have one on each of my 3 bikes. When I'm on the bike trails, it is perfect to warn others. The compass is my "mini-GPS" keeping me on course.
                              This is a very handy device for the commuter, messenger and the recreational trail rider.
