Bells of St. Freddie


The Man… The Myth... The Newsletter. To commemorate the dozen years since I have abandoned my Criterium Corner with Euro Freddie column, I have created an edition of twelve cycling bells. Like my ongoing investigations into the bicycle, I’ve embraced the bicycle subspecies, campana de bicicleta, with unabated verve.

Made from a Sabian Turkish bronze cymbal bell, and a repurposed Campagnolo bottom bracket tool striker, this bell epitomizes the spirit of AKA Global Freddie's exotic adventures, embarking from Turkey, and foreshadowed throughout Asia by stowaway Italian bicycle parts. Heady stuff for the dedicated Euro Freddie literati.
