So, up into the attic I ventured to find my Trek mountain bike which had been ‘archived’ a few years ago. There it was, the Spurcycle bell, still firmly mounted to the Trek’s handlebar.
Correct Allen-key located and bell removed, a quick inspection showed minor pitting on the bell’s black coating and degradation of the rubber mount/grommet – not bad for a bell that’s approaching a ten years old and hasn’t been treated to any maintenance.
I ordered my parts from MTB Riders, here in the UK – all required bits in-stock, including those for the original V1 design; delivered quickly too.
Now the Spurcycle is fitted to the Brompton so people of Kent be warned! The bell is significantly louder than the factory-fitted bell and operation is more assured and definite. The bell can be fitted in either the vertical or horizontal orientation and doesn’t affect gear-shifter operation.
