Have you considered alternative ways of having a bell on your bike? Something like https://www.closethegap.cc/ and I'm sure there are other solutions out there

Thanks jacob have considered that but my current setup have my Garmin and fly12 cam/light mounted to my stem bolt mount. Nothing I've found so far that can incorporate all 3 on the stem mount. Closethegap does have all three in one mount but we are back to Handlebar mount.

With the Oi.. I have a bell that doesn't look like one.. And is pretty much part of the Handlebar without sticking out.

If not for the car focused culture, crazy drivers and nanny state government.. Would be a cycling paradise.

So the law is actually worded incredibly vaguely, which opens up some options for you.

Technically all you need to comply is a warning device fitted to your bike. I had a little bell from a Lindt chocolate bunny zip tied to a rear light mount. A lot of my mates just mounted a bell to their front hub. It's obviously a silly solution but so is the law so it seems to fit nicely in my eyes.

Moving the bell would mean the aerofly bars fit perfectly 👌

Another question,
How large are the cable routing hole, can Di2 EW-WU111 inserted into the bar?

Yes it's big enough.. But you have to get it in before threading the hoses.. If using Hydro discs.

Alex.. Sorry missed your reply..


Yes it is vague.. But the word functional leaves room for a cop on a bad day room for interpretation.

That said.. I did cram on the Oi bell as is without mod and keeping the bar centred. The cable ports on the bell is enough to get it on.

Had to scrounge a longer bolt to makenit work.
The big BUT.... Is it either rattles like a coin in a empty coke can with the bell sounding as normal or rings with a dull whack to Not rattle. This is due to the angle it has to sit at.. The metal ringer is not suspended by the spring.

So I'm riding the fine line of a Not fully functional bell as I can't stand rattles. I'll use the it must of vibrated loose during my ride excuse..

I just picked up a set of these right before leaving on vacation for a week. I had enough time to look at the bars briefly, and it appeared that running DI2 cables internally would be tough. Has anyone been able to route a an etube cable from the shifters down to a bar-end junction box (RS910), or from shifter to shifter? Any tricks?

Can you attach the Oi Bell to the seatpost?

Seems it would still be functional there.

There are some business ideas here. A bell in the headset top cap (specialized is able to fit a chain breaker there), or between the gps and the mount, à la fabric lumaray (?) lamp. If I was living in Australia, I would definitely give a try.

I looked at my aerofly 2 on my venge yesterday and there’s no way you can fit a knog next to the stem
