Let Freedom Ring


A miniature replica of the Liberty Bell on your handlebar adds a subtle patriotic touch to your ride. Press and release the spring-loaded plastic hammer to strike the bell's single clear tone. It's about 1.75" (4.44 cm) high by 1.5" (3.81 cm) wide. 

 


Are you curious...?

The bell that would hang in the Pennsylvania State House steeple (later Independence Hall) was originally cast in England, ironically enough, in 1752. It cracked the first time it was rung after arriving in Pennsylvania and was recast twice. Pennsylvanians used it to announce legislative sessions and public meetings. It was probably among the bells that rang on July 8, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was read. Up to this time it was no more or less remarkable than any other big bell. Its path to fame began when abolitionist societies adopted it as a symbol and named it the "Liberty Bell" in the 1830s. Legend says that the big crack appeared in 1835 when it announced the death of Chief Justice John Marshall. The bell's celebrity really took off after an 1847 story claimed that it rang when the Second Contintental Congress voted for independence on July 4, 1776 -- which wasn't actually true, but people hate to let facts get in the way of a good myth. Now that it was an icon, the city of Philadelphia allowed the bell to go on tour to various patriotic commemorations, where it accumulated more chips and cracks until its travels finally ended in 1915. Ultimately it was turned over to the National Park Service, removed from Independence Hall, and enshrined in a nearby pavilion where it still hangs today.
