Bike went down, what do I do with my gremlin bell?

Title says it all, is there a traditional thing to do with the bells once you’ve gone down? Throw them away, put them on your key chain, or put them on the new bike?

I would return it for a full refund under the Lemon Laws...obviously it was defective.

Glad you're ok, my friend

Wife gave it too me, did you change you’re response there post #2? Didn’t used to say something to the effect of “you’re still alive aren’t you” which was my wife’s reasoning too.

You are Okay? That is good! There is a story behind the bike going down that you can share with us? I carry a total of 6 anti gremlin and Angel bells on my bike. 2 from the kids, 2 from the grand sons, 1 from the dog and 1 from my Sweet Babboo! How badly damaged was the bike?

Cheers!

So that's what that bell was I cut off my new used bike? Heck, I'm old enough I 'tinkle without the need for a bell.

The bell is meant to keep Gremlins from causing problems, not prevent accidents or endow us riders with more sense and improved coordination/reflexes. Unless you went down due to a mechanical malfunction it was operating within normal parameters. Therefore, it can go on your repaired bike or your new bike. If no more bikes in your future, place it on your key chain....or better yet, on your loved ones car.

Yes I did. I wanted to find out how you got your bell. If a loved one gave it to you then take it and put it back on your new bike. It's good luck for you. Plus I'm really glad your still alive
