bicycle bells






Dring Dring!! There's nothing like the sound
of an old fashioned bike bell and we love these
ones designed and hand painted in Montreal...
Painted with eco-friendly paints and then baked
to seal in the colour, making them incredibly
durable. Lots of great designs to choose from !!
