If you are looking for a bell that is diminutive, functional and all metal, I don't see anything comparable
I do think it is $50 nice, though. If your tandem is admirable (as well it should be), festooning its handlebar with a junky clunky bell makes it less so. This bell is so small as to not initially be noticed, and so nice that when it eventually is noticed it tends more to adorn than clutter. Thus, your tandem has the desired quality of being better the closer one looks, and the more expert the observer.
In doing that search, I stumbled on another
Kickstarter bell, available this fall. This is more for captains than stokers, as its advantage is that it can be used while the hands are on the levers, which isn't usually relevant to the stoker.
