The modern bicycle bell was patented during the reign of Victoria by John Richard Dedicoat, a British inventor. Mounted to the handlebars, most bells are rung using a thumb-operated geared lever. Inside the bell housing are two slack metal discs which, when the lever is moved, vibrate and strike the bell, producing an extended repeat-strike ‘electric bell’ sound. It was compulsory to have a bell fitted on a new bicycle up to 1983 and this requirement was reintroduced in 2004.
