According to the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO) and the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (Straßenverkehrs-Zulassungs-Ordnung), anyone who rides a bicycle on the road is obliged to have a functional bicycle bell fitted to the bicycle. A roadworthy bike will also need a lighting and reflectors to be roadworthy. The bell on the handlebar is usually rather unobtrusive and discreet, but it serves to protect other road users and your own health.
The bell for the mountain bike
A light and loud ringing bell also makes a lot of sense on a mountain bike. This is a simple solution that can make mountain biking in harmony with other forest and mountain visitors much easier. Whether bikers, hikers or dog owners, everyone recognizes the familiar sound of a bike bell and will perceive it as less startling than a biker rushing by in the quiet countryside. For the MTB we recommend the smaller models from Surcycle and Crane. This way, you will attract discreet attention without losing the fun of biking
