Bells under the spotlight
IN THE LAST month, the weekend ride has become an expensive outing for many cyclists, with the introduction of new laws for cyclists and a crackdown on bells. For many, adding a bell to a carefully selected, sleek bike is an aesthetic atrocity, until now. The recently launched HideMyBell combines design elegance and functionality in a inconspicuous add-on for the Garmin Edge.
Designer Mathijs Wagenaar says the idea for HideMyBell came to him while on a training ride, when he wondered if a clean, integrated and lightweight option was possible for mounting a bell on his bicycle. After research, he realised no such product existed, and set to work, carefully investigating the options and sketching out alternatives. Constructed from a durable polymer material, the HideMyBell weighs only 46 grams, with two mounting options, and a starting price of $49.95, we rate this one of the best investments for 2016.
