The Bell That Got Away

I wrote about the bell I bought, and I showed you a picture of it on my bike.  In both of those posts, I also wrote about the other contender.  The bell that was also a mount for the Garmin I don’t actually have.

I stopped by the bike store today to pick up some UV protecting and cooling sleeves.  While there, I stumbled across the one I didn’t get.  And, after looking at it, I am really happy I didn’t chose that one.  It didn’t sound that sonorous.  Perhaps, it would be great for someone with a Garmin.  That person just isn’t me….yet.

They had a whole wall of stuff a typical biker doesn’t really need, but may want just because they can get it. I looked at new gloves, a new helmet, and even an awesome all carbon bike….So much stuff to blow your money on.

  1. I saw this bell that was like $100 which was a badass design, but who the eff buys a $100 bell?!? Yea, my random trips into bike stores is dangerous because one visit resulted in buying a Giant TCR advanced…. I was like “I like black bikes” haha
