Granite Design Cricket Bell Review | ding ding for trail harmony!

by 13

Granite Design produces some great little items that you’ll use once and wonder how you lived without them, is this what we think of the Cricket Bell though? What is it? The Granite Design Cricket Bell is a small bell designed to mount to your handlebars. In the packet, the bell comes with a built-in handlebar bracket and optional rubber spacers to step down the clamp for narrower bars. With the largest spacer fitted the Cricket Bell fits on bars as narrow as 22.2mm, a second thinner spacer takes it to 31.8mm, and without the bell fits modern 35mm bars. So while the idea of a bell might bring about visions of shopping bikes, the Cricket Bell is designed for anything from kids’ bikes, gravel bikes, mountain bikes to even DH bikes. If all the Granite Design Cricket Bell was was a simple bell then we wouldn’t have much to speak about, but this actually has two modes that make it much more useful for technical off-road riding. Granite Design calls these two modes Single-Strike...

    A little Spur-like (a good thing) apart from the price (a good thing).

    Looks like it’s 10x better than a Knog Oi for not much more money

    Better than the Timber bell, which has no manual operation?

    I have the Trigger bell, works great keeps my hands fully on the bars at all times.

    UK retailer?

    If you get it in the STW shop, I’ll have one, (maybe two) of those.

    Windwave distribute Granite stuff so most local bike shops should be able to get them.

    Big timber bell fan here..

    Perfect for it’s intended use of bombing rough bridleways and warning people of your presence.
    I’ve had plenty of times when folk have already been stood out of the way as they heard me coming. Usually with a smile as it sounds like Santa is on his way.
    It’s a bit rubbish in anything else though as you have to wiggle your bars to make it ring. Still it’s loud enough that most folk hear you.

    Bought a cricket bell awhile back to see if it solves this problem.
    Sadly it doesn’t. It’s just not loud enough in my opinion.

    If only they’d made the bell part as big as the timber bell it might of been a winner.

    My Timber! bell is great for horses as they are generally alert to their surroundings. Joggers with headphones and walking wandering around like a tit in a trance, not so much.
