Thread: Chris King

    I just sent this to Chris King:Whoever reads this,Why do you not make bells? I have been endlessly searching for a great quality bell that won't scratch the resin on my Easton CT2 MonkeyLites. Over here in England (the Lake District where the world's best riding lies), there are often ramblers clogging up some of our trails.We would love to be able to warn them (and give them no excuse to shout / whinge / throw missiles at us) but sadly, bells clatter and ring over bumps, are heavy, and are poorly made.Until now, nobody has made a great quality bell. It is a humble but nonetheless essentia piece of equipment for many of us, but sadly I, and others, have not come across any that are to our liking.Yours,Anthony Lee (15).Well, I know that you lot feel the same way!

    If they make one expect to have to re-morgage you house, sell the cat or some thing.

    Ancient Mariner, I think you will find these bells will be perfectly toned, and sound very nice indeed. The stroke of the lever will be smooooth...

    Have you got some old gloves that you could cut the last two fingers off to create one large finger hole?

    No idea how long. Shouldn't be that long in theory, but I was speaking to one of the people at Bicycle Doctor yesterday who had a similar fall, and didn't keep it bound properly. She now has a rather odd shaped little finger as it didn't heal straight. I think I'll play it safe to be honest. I could hack up a pair of glovs though.....

    The little finger on my right hand is very crooked I always reckoned I broke it as a child. Don't remember doing it tho'. And hasn't hindered me at all.If you can hold on well enough with your hand like that hacking up a glove should work ok.
