Spacer Bell Mount
One of the characteristics of a finely built bicycle is complete integration, bells not withstanding. Constructeurs would often drill and tap their stems to achieve this goal. This Spacer Bell Mount is the next best thing.
This clever mount sits within your headset's stack and is tapped to work with our Temple Bells.
- Hardware included
- 10mm thick
- Available in Silver (1" & 1 1/8") and Black (1 1/8")
- Bell not included
Note: if you have an older bike with little room under the headset nut, then get a Retro Mount instead.
The bolt that came with this had a much narrower TPI than what was compatible with the temple bell, rendering this unusable. Very disappointed and not the first time I've had hardware issues with VO products :/
Sorry you're having trouble with the bell mount. Here's the info: The factory that makes the bell has been making our Brass Temple Bell for decades, unchanged. As such, the bell uses an obscure Taiwanese threading which is close to the supplied screw, but not a perfect match. Put a dab of grease on the threads and screw it in. It will go and stay secure.
We've added this to the spacer bell page.
I wanted to fit a Crane bell under my VO Tall-Stack stem with this Spacer mount, however this mount has an OD of 36mm, while the OD of the Tall-Stack stem is about 34mm.
I still use this mount, but it pains me that it isn't flush with the stem, as i went out of my way to find spacer with an OD of 34mm to fit the VO stem.
Got the 1" spacer mount for my Crane bells. Note: this is only for use with the spring strike kind, not the lever/hammer! For the right application, it works like a dream, though. The spacer diameter is a bit wider than expected, but it tightens down just fine. The product also comes with extra hardware to ensure you can get the striker spring spaced properly. Especially recommended for the price.
