Well, why do they?
There's many types, all with their own weak points.
The weight of the raindrops clinging to the bell dampens the ringing (literally!). The Knog Oi bell seems a bit more immune to this than the usual "ping" bells.
How wet Pat, if your bike is completely submerged I think I have an answer for you.
'Oi' - nope still works, unless I'm drinking a drink
All of the ones I tried, sorry I can't be more specific.
The latest one is my extravagant purchase (£10 for a bike bell???) a CatEye brass (don't know if real or fake brass) that is already fit for the recycling heap.
Thank you, great answer!
Will look into Knog Oi bells!
I do live in Scotland: very, very wet!
@classic33 my CatEye is not the same, but you gave me an idea
Because pedestrians dont go out jn the rain, thus there is no need for a bell that works in such conditions.
I was out in the rain, as a pedestrian, today!
One sensible answer so far: I'm doing not bad here with this thread
It's not the bell failing, its your lugs - the rains blowing in, you will need a hat with flaps.
this is what I did - keeps them dry and working properly
A broken helmet won't make my broken bell work @Reiver
I'm surprised manufacturers dont combine a bell into a helmet.
