Default Re: Help, Speedo is failing

I've never had a lot of faith in those mechanical Speedo's. I got one from Spooky Tooth once and after I back calculated the rpm scale vs. the mph scale I figured it would be accurate on a something like a 32" diameter wheel. Most bike shops will carry a wired speedometer that senses a magnet attached to the spokes for $20 - $30. The wireless ones are a lot more expensive. I recommend that you stay away from Blackburn. It was difficult to program and always had problems. I've since switched to a Cateye Velo5 and it is much simpler and so far more reliable.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
