The past two and a half months I’ve been working with the awesome peeps at Spurcycle, helping them make their top notch bicycle bells. I thought it would be cool to have a little “giveaway” to spread word about what is probably the best bike bell on the market. Nick, one of the two brothers who make up the company, gave me his blessing and I hit the obsolete/damaged parts box to build a few custom bells.

These bells are all one of a kind! ( A little bit rough around the edges compared to a bell you’d buy, but they ring true and were made by yours truly so there’s that…)

The guys also gave me a few of the company’s key clips for the giveaway.

Pretty handy to keep your key safe and out of the way while cycling. Also, I discovered you can open a soda pop bottle, or even a beer, with the handy bottle opening feature.

So, if you want a sweet bell or handy dandy key clip all you have to do is follow these rules:


The 1st, 5th, and 10th person to subscribe to LewisandClarkandMark wins a bell. (Once you subscribe, I’ll email you. I promise the only spam you’ll receive is what I occasionally write on the site. If it gets to be too much, you can always unsubscribe. I won’t hold it against you…for long.)


If you’re not in the market for a bell (aka don’t own a bike), or you’ve already subscribed, the first three comments on this post win a key clip, but only if you say something nice. (FYI – posts are moderated to prevent spam, so I’ll make sure Lewis posts the comments in the order they were received when he’s moderating.)




Sadly, my carrier pigeons are not doing well, which means I must limit where these items are shipped. I will ship anywhere in the United States of America, or to France. Yes, I know that seems random, but I promise it is not. If you live elsewhere, please subscribe and comment with your country. If there is enough interest, I will try to do a worldwide giveaway in the future.


In the meantime, I’m back to bell building, making jokes and playing ping-pong with the gang on Thursday afternoons.
