- Fits 22.2-31.8 mm OD rods.
We noticed it at a glance among many bicycle bells not only because of its relatively expensive price but also because of its eye-catching enough appearance design. Although it seems a bit expensive to us, after actually using it, we have no objection to its price at all.
First of all, it is made in Japan and is made of all metal. There is no compromise in any part, so its durability is not a concern at all.
Secondly, the compact design can be placed in front of the handlebars to get a more aerodynamic profile and make your road ride faster.
Moreover, when we tested the ringer, it made a clearer and louder sound that lasted longer.

Low-profile and secretive ring design.
- $31.94 (as tested)
- Fits handlebars 23.8 mm – 31.8 mm.

In my opinion, ring-style bells are better for road bikes because there is no excess resistance, but of course, that is just my personal feeling. This Oi Luxe bell has a low-profile ring-style design that fits very well on the handlebars of the bike during actual riding. If you don’t look closely, you won’t notice it at all.
In addition, the internal padding of the ring avoids wear and tear on the handlebar. It should be noted that it is more suitable to be installed close to the handlebar.
It is worth mentioning that it has a very beautiful bell. If you want nice clean sounds to accompany you all the time on your riding trips, this Knog Oi Luxe Bell may be the right choice for you.
10. Spurcycle Original Bike Bell – Raw
Expensive bike bell.
- $59.00 (as tested)
- Longer ringing.
- 2.5 mm hexagonal tool required for installation.
At first, this bell was not among our options, but because many fans wanted to see on what grounds this bell was sold so expensive. We also got curious, so we reviewed this bell.
To be honest, this is indeed a quality bike bell. But in my opinion, the price is still a bit high.
In real-world testing, the Spurcycle bell rang strong and lasted longer. The wind did not interfere with our ability to hear it as we accelerated forward.
If you don’t care about the price, you can choose it. But you need to read the installation instructions carefully when you install it.
For safety reasons, it is essential to install a bell on your bike, especially in a busy city neighborhood. Some people may think that a bell will confuse the handlebars, but a properly fitted bell will not cause you such problems. Instead, it will alert pedestrians more clearly and politely, ensuring your smooth ride and the safety of others.
Not only that, the right bell will make your riding trip more interesting, so choose a bell that suits you!
