Default Bell fits drop bar?

Have been trying to find a bell that fits the drop bar with not much luck. If you have one, which one do you have? How do you set it up, so that it is easily accessible from the hood?


I've already heard someone shouted "Just strap it on the available space." I have another bike with flat bar. I can ring the bell with a flip of my thumb. The problem is: the bike is a tandem. I don't want to give my wife the impression that I am trying to hitch some chics on my way to work.

Thanks

This is one option http://tinyurl.com/3d4tw6 I can't vouch for it because I've never used one, so I don't know what it sounds like. When I had drops, I had two bells strapped to the stem. One 'DING' and one 'BRRRRAAA-BIIIING' (if you can read keyboard sounds!)

I put an Incredibell on the upper part of my drops near the stem. It leaves me enough room to ride on top of the bar, and the bell is easily reached with my thumb.
