    How did adriano do it?

    I want to put a bell on my bike that is activated by my spare brake lever. Except I have no idea how this is going to work. Do you guys have any idea how he did it?

    It doesn't seem that hard. Easiest approach I believe is for a mechanical type bell with the brake cable from the lever attached to the lever of the bell which is mounted in a position that the vertical pull of the lever rings the bell.

    Yup, it appears this is exactly the way adriana did it:



    Just manipulate the tension/ length of the brake cable in the process.

    yea thats what I thought too, but how would the cable be routed? There isnt a stop so that the housing isnt moving also.

    There's a fork mount housing stop there right above the bell.

    That requires a canti mount... is there a hose clamp type thing to hold it in place?
