    Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

    This is best with small circumference handlebars. I have a Specialized Dolce and the bell "girth" is too small to fit the bike.

    Great bell, not so great compass

    By n1jdu

    from boston, ma

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

    Bought this to replace a bell with a muted tone. This bell has a clean and sharp tone, very nice.

    The compass could have been designed better. Yes, it floats freely no matter what the orientation when mounted on your handlebar .. but .. I would rather have the NESW scale reversed.

    You look at the compass FROM THE REAR (as it is on the handlebars ahead of you) so what you see (facing you) is the direction BEHIND you, not the direction you are facing. You always have to mentally reverse the direction indicated.

    Cons

    • Could Be A Tad Louder

    Best Uses

    Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

    This goofy little thing is just cool.

    I do some extended training rides that take me on some rail/trail routs with tons of ear bud wearing strollers and just yelling "On your left!!!" scares the snot outta %84 of them. It does the same to hikers and dog walkers on multi-use trails. Scared people get grumpy.

    This little bell emits a loud, pleasant chime and alerts folks to my coming approach while reducing any startling effect I'd otherwise inflict on 'em. I can warn folks at a greater distance as well, and keeping the peace is the goal when sharing the trails.

    the compass actually works, and that in itself justifies the minimal cost of the bell! And its come in handy, too!

    Plus... seriously a bell with a compass built in is just rad, yo.

      Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

      Bell is simple, just a quick metallic noise/ not really a bell. I read reviews about the compass not working. I put it at the base of my Aero bars, so it's not on metal, which throws the compass off. It works great for me. At the price I wasn't really worried about trying it out.

        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.

            Comments about Nashbar Compass Bell:

            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.
