I Made A Bell

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 22

We all know bicycles are one of the best ways to get around, I for one can’t go a day without getting on one. Today I woke up and thought to myself, self you need a bell. So I got out the sketch pad, and went to town. Then I took a trip to the hardware store when I got home I busted out the jewelers saw and wallah, the BostonBiker.org bicycle bell.

My mic on my camera sucks pretty bad, it really does have a nice ring to it.

Might sell these if anyone wants one…the top is made of brass, and has a delightful ring to it. Still have to shine up the brass disk, and might also add some texture, or a bell shape to it (hammer it out). Also I realized there is no reason that it has to be round…next one might be a skull, cause that would be cooler.

    this is pretty great. though, you may want to consider using a conduit clamp as it’d be lighter than the clamp you used.

    “wallah”? You mean “voilà”.

    Brian: don’t know yet, was thinking in the $25 range.

    Greg: There is actually a nice brass pipe fitting that is smaller, only the hardware store didn’t have it, going to go to a plumbing supply center next time. I thought the same thing. tooooo big.

    Jamie: I grew up in the country, I mean Wallah!

    Dan: Thanks!

    Looks kind of like a little Zildjian cymbal. Nice work!

    Hello, nice design, from 2009 I guess.
