Mountain bike cow bell with volume control
The idea for "Timber!" comes from sunny California. Here, the motion-controlled bell has been specially developed for mountain bikers who are on a trail. In the often confusing paths, other
Drivers and Hiker have already been made aware from afar by the constant and getting louder cowbell sound. This is done in a friendly, pleasant way - instead of aggressively ringing your way at the last second.
With a lever, the clapper can either be adjusted to the maximum volume so that it swings freely or you throttle the noise by slightly fixing the clapper. If you don't need "Timber!", the clapper can also be completely locked and you can "turn off" Timber! totally.
In addition to the use of MTB in the terrain, "Timber!" is also ideal for use in the city. Often there are confusing areas such as bus stops or tourist centres, where pedestrians often cross the bike path without looking. Here it can be very useful to activate "Timber!"
It makes sense to install directly next to the grip to be able to operate "Timber!" quickly with your thumb as you are used to from other bells. If the bell is used only occasionally, it can also be used well in the middle of the handlebars be fastened.
The bell with the cowbell sound is available in two variants: The fixed "Bolt-On" version and the "Quick Release" model. The two "Timber!" variants are identical except for the type of fastening. For the one-time assembly of the "Bolt-On" version, a 5 mm hex key is required. It is not necessary to dismantle other components such as brake and shift levers. The fastening ring is carefully bent and pressed over the handlebars at the desired location. The "Quick-Realease" variant is attached to the handlebars with an o-ring.
With the offered latest version 4.0 (April 2021) various components (such as the shift lever) were reinforced once again so that the bell can withstand even stronger crashes.
The bell is made of solid brass, with a black, sleek finish. The lever, mount and shim are made of durable plastic and fastening o-rings of rubber.
