HotelFietsBell

Are you signaling a turn or calling the concierge?

Attention U.S. cyclists: the "service bell," or hotelfietsbell, is the hot new thing in Amsterdam.

It's like the bell you ring for the concierge, but it goes on your handlebars. It looks good and it sounds better. It's easy to ring with your gloves on.

And like we said, it comes to you from Amsterdam, which is basically the Milan of bicycle accessories.
