    Hey, I see a lot of you guys letting everyone know how many miles you have on your bikes. What are you guys using to measure this?

    You want me to ride around in a $10 speedo?! That doesn't sound very safe, and I'll probably scare a lot of people.

    Snork, snork snork. 2funny.

    I get Schwinn wallyworld ones for around $10. I doubt they are perfectly accurate but close enough. One bad thing about having a speedo (not the banana-hammock kind) is you get really worried when one day your MB will only do "X" for speed and really excited when it will go "Y"

    Here is a link but does not show the 10 dollar ones. dunno why. They do have them. Walmart.com: Platinum 15 Function Wireless Speedometer: Bikes, Scooters & Skates

    I checked mine with my hand-held GPS (friend said his car was doing 30 when he was following me and the speedo said I was only doing 25 so I made sure) and it's dead on (+/- a few tenths) using the setting right out of the instructions.

    I go by driving experience in my truck and guesstimate. Certain points around town I know how far it is from my house.
