Here is my Tremolo french bell.
It has a very cool sound and is similar to the old fashioned telephones.
It has an activation lever on the handlebars that works the bell.
Once the lever is pulled the bell moves and contacts the tyre which in turn rotates the bell to make the sound.
If you want to scare the life out of pedestrians then get one of these :innocent:

I just bought one of these. Haven't installed it yet. This one is cheaply made, but I'll see how I like it. Bike bells have all become very low quality. It's quite disconcerting. Anyway, I got the tire-driven one because I wanted a very loud bell. Some others recently bought one, each for himself, so maybe we'll be reporting soon.

Oh so they still make them?
This one is from the 1950's i believe ,and made properly.

Have you seen the Toner Flex ones before?
They are another vinatge bell but they work by moving a small rod into the spokes.
