Many bike accessories are intended to increase safety, comfort, or make riding more efficient; but some add personalization and flair.
A bell is an easy (and inexpensive) way to let others know you are coming. Look for one with a quick-release mount like this Knog option which won’t clog your handlebars with unnecessary clutter.
