Default Re: Mechanical speedometer

I had one of the cheap speedometers that is being discussed here and it lasted a whole 16.5 Miles before the needle flew off the little shaft and the internal guts just crapped out, they will not take the vibration or the 25-35MPH speeds, I sent mine back and my money was refunded, I ordered one of the wireless digital speedometers off e-bay for about $4.00 and it has worked great for 207 miles now, it reads about 2 MPH slower than I'm actually going but thats no biggy to me.
