Rooted in Japan’s long history of biking culture, the Osaka based Crane Bell Co. has established a name for itself as a high quality manufacturer of beautiful and timelessly designed commuter bike bells. Produced in an array of metals from warm copper and brass to silver aluminum available in two finishes – these little objets d’art are actually most renowned for their strong resonant ring which has been described as crystal-clear, enduring and even instrumental in tone. But leaving the nuances of tones and timbres the the experts – these little beauties will leave a girl (or guy) itching for a bike to show one off on. Enjoy the eye candy!
Crane Bells can found at Soma Fabrication and The Urban Cyclist in the U.S. as well as aFrame Distribution in Erope. The bells are also currently on sale through MONOQI.
