Bike bells generally look and sound a bit ugly. But why? What if they looked sexy and sounded like an angel playing a glockenspiel?

Oi's are on their way

Hi Backers,   

Great news! We can confirm that 95% of Oi bells are either currently being mailed out to backers (USA, Canada and Germany) or will be landing at our fulfilment centres in the coming days, ready to be processed and mailed out.

If you’re in the US, Canada or Germany then you should start receiving emails with your tracking details to confirm your little bundle of ‘Oi’ is on its way. 

For Australia, UK, France and ROW your bells will be landing in our fulfilment centres in the next couple of days and will be mailed out once processed. You will be notified by email once your order has been dispatched. 

Also, for those of you that ordered lights or locks add-ons via Backerkit, these goods are on their way to you as well, just in a separate parcel. Tracking details will be emailed to you. 

Thank you for your patience, have a great day & ride hard. 

Knog

      I have received both of mine but they just make a clank! Very disappointed at this I could make the same sound by tapping my handle bars with my wedding ring.
      I have tried putting tape around my bare to make sure the bolt isn't touching the bar as it was originally, but it still sound s dead.

      I saw the latest update BUT I am still waiting on a despatch update. 2+ weeks later and still no bell in the UK. How much longer are we being kept waiting??

      Hi Backers, we've just posted an update (#20) with regards to the status of the remaining Kickstarter bells. Please check this to see the latest info.

      Hi, I have yet to receive any indication when the bells will be shipped to Singapore.

      Like Mr Cappe, I live on the same continent as Knog but am yet to receive anything - no email, no tracking number, no bell - since Update 19. Yet I could buy one online https://www.bike24.com/p2172163.html ...

      Hi. I am in Australia and haven't heard anything for almost 2 weeks now, despite the last email saying they will be sent out in the "next couple of days". No update on the further delay, no email with verification of the bell being sent, nothing. So I am completely in the dark as to the status of my order, and as it seems so are many others. I am sure the product will be terrific when I get it, but when will I get it? The product is supposedly Australian, so why are we in Australia still waiting whilst those overseas are recieving their bells?

      Hi there - I haven't received any emails about my bell since the 9th of August! Have I been missed? I am in NZ :)

      Hi! Had mine in the mailbox.
      Nice looking bell :)

      Unfortunately Shipwire/you sent me the wrong size.
      Ordered large, got small.

      How to switch sizes?
      I'm sorry for the inconveniences.
      All the best, Christian

      I don't get it. You say to DM you but I can't for the life of me figure out how to send a DM. I went to your webpage and filled out a form. no response. I commented here and you said to DM you but how do I do that? I have a non-working bell. - Kevin

      It has been received today, "ADD-ON ITEMS", just, "PLEDGE ITEMS" wasn't included.
      Is it sent separately?

      I received mine yesterday -- a titanium in large -- but the sound is absolutely pitiful. The law in New Jersey (US) is why I ordered a bell:

      "TITLE 39 MOTOR VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC REGULATION
      39:4-11. Audible signal
      No person shall operate a bicycle unless it is equipped with a bell or other device capable of giving a signal audible for a distance of at least one hundred feet, except that a bicycle shall not be equipped with nor shall any person use upon a bicycle any siren or whistle."

      However, I really doubt that the Oi! bell is audible for 100 feet, so I am considering returning it. I loathe having to write this but I am really disappointed. The Oi! bell seems to be a triumph of marketing over substance.

      Good and bad news:
      Good news: Received my order this week
      Bad news: Ordered Large but received Small although packing list clearly states Large.
      Things happens!
      ... Awaiting reply / feedback from Gnog for resolution. (Mails sent 2 days ago)

      Canadian here - just received mine! They all seem to be working perfectly, didn't have any extra duty/tax fees owed on delivery, and shipped surprisingly quickly! Thanks so much, Knog!

      Just to second the re-quest for an update on UK shipping status. Have the bells reached the UK fulfillment centre? Haven't had any e-mail notification; have been getting the project update e-mails.

      I just got mine in the US - didn't get any email that I noticed with tracker info. Checking backerkit real quick, it is showing tracking info there. You can try checking there for a tracking number.

      Still nothing as yet in the UK for me. Can we please have an update on what the actual schedule is for shipping these bells?

    37. trevor junge on

      still no bell 9 days after your last communication. 10 days doesn't = a couple of days

    38. LIM KAY KHENG on

      Still waiting.. any updates if Singapore goods is shipped out??

    39. Knog 3-time creator on

      Hi Backers,

      Thank you for all your comments.

      Of the 30,000 or so bells that have been shipped we’ve had 30 or so looking like they’re not performing as they should be. Of course, we’re desperate to get a fully functioning Oi in your hands as quickly as we can.

      All we need you to do is:

      1/ Send us through a Direct Message with a video of the bell attached to the bike and you striking the bell. We’re keen to see each and every case so we can fix it at the factory level asap.

      2/ We’ll check that there isn’t a fix to advise you on and if not, we’ll send a replacement out to you.

      Please remember to include your address in your message so we can get a replacement out to you asap and reduce email back and forth.

      Furthermore, if possible hiccups in the pick, pack & send process have left you with the wrong order then please contact support@backerkit.com and we’ll fix this up for you.

      Thanks in advance for your patience.

      Received my bell today, and as others have noted, it's very quiet. On top of that, I had ordered mine ENGRAVED but it's NOT! Very disappointed

      FunkyLaneO on

      Of the two I ordered, one arrived broken, how do I go about getting a replacement. The little stud that holds the bell on was rattling around in the box yet there was no damage to the box whatsoever. Seriously makes me concerned about the durability of these bells and really disappointed that I waited so long for a bell that is broken.

      Christof Chen on

      I ordered a large one and the packing slip also says large, but the bell actually is the "small" 22.2mm one. How can i get the bell exchanged?

    43. Ed Henn on

      Got my Oi bell, thanks! Packaging is beautiful, bell looks great and sounds great off the bike, but unfortunately it's muted when installed on my bike. I have the small one and it seems to fit quite well. Will try installing with a rubber insert around the bar. Just wondering if anyone else is having issues. My bar is curved in some places but the bell is installed on a straight section. I can send photos and sound samples if desired.

    44. Stijn Janssens on

      The local bike store around the corner already sells the bell... But I'm still waiting on my order... Little bit disappointed :( Belgium

    45. Andreas Kolbe on

      Just to add to the overall impression: Seems, that the fullfillment partner screwed up. I received my bell. Correct color, wrong size. :-( Although I'm not as agitated as some others here, I hope, that Knog finds a way to make us - the early backers of their business idea - happy anyways. Already sent a DM and would appreciate any token of appreciation for the inconvenience caused by this after us waiting... Best regards from Berlin, Germany... Yours Andreas

      I'm still waiting for a notice e-mail. I check my e-mail everyday since Knog announced that the bell will be shipped in September . But I'm not sure when my bell will be shipped because my country in listed in "ROW". Actually, I have gave up to waiting for anything... I just hope I could got my bell before Christmas. Or I should consider buying a Oi bell from retail shop...

      The post just dropped off my Oi's. I have to say I was super excited to finally receive them. Sadly, I'm not as excited about the actual product. The bell does look different but the sound is no-where near what I expected and I am super disappointed. The package says 'A new kind of ring'; if you meant shape-wise, then yes but honestly I was hoping the sound would at least be loud enough to be heard.

      I am super disappointed.
