Spurcycle’s Lighter, Slimmer, Compact Bell
Sprucycle's low profile design is ideal for saving handlebar real estate
Spurcycle, creators of the precision Spurcycle bell, have launched their new Compact Bell. Optimized for flat bars, the Compact Bell is the anticipated follow-up ringer to their successful, original bell that was Kickstarted in 2013. The original bell remains in line.
The new Compact Bell – first shown to at the Sea Otter Classic last Spring – has been amended with a 50% slimmer mount and trim lever which allows better integration with many brake, shifter and dropper levers seen on modern bikes. It is intended for use with mountain bike, commuter, eBikes or any other bike that uses a 22.2 mm diameter bar.
The new Compact Bell features a brass alloy dome (with black DLC coating), a composite nylon lever and mount and a fixed 22.2 diameter clamp. Less complex with an overall lower part count means Spurcycle can deliver premium sound and compatible ergonomics at a reduced price point of $39.
Spurcycle’s Compact Bell is available now at spurcycle.com. It will also be stocked and available through Spurcycle’s dealer network. Spurcycle’s Compact Bell is the most recent collaboration of brothers Nick and Clint Slone, following the original Spurcycle Bell, Key Clip, Multi Pouch, Multi Tool, Saddle Bag, and Hip Pack. Their focus—in addition to meticulous design—is to create products that don’t require a slick sales pitch but which encourage blatant favoritism.
