Easy to pop off when taking the bike to a pressure wash.
Great contrast and visibility in bright daylight (not very useful at night).
I am very pleased with mine. 2 years of use and still going!

Motorcycle or bicycle? I just bought a $19 bicycle one at Target that I'm going to put on my wife's TT-R125LE tonight.
Ok guys if you are using a Bike speedo can you let me know the Brand and Make please....as the IDiots down my local store and doing me head in...
It's a Schwinn 12 function or something? I picked it because it had the largest numbers I could find for under $20 (not that I looked very hard). Also, I figure, if it breaks, I'll be less likely to worry about one that was under $20 that I would if it were more expensive.
I will check it out with a GPS to see how accurate it records speed. And, it does save "top speed" as well as some other odd things. Mostly, it is going to be there to keep her from getting a speeding ticket!

I got on on my wr426, £56, super bit of kit, remember to route the cable the right way, unlike me who routed it the wrong way and had the front tire cut through the cable
Stupid twat......I dunno.....works really well though.
Dont bother trying to save money with the above push bike speedo, its a total waste, I did that and now I've taken it off, its shite.
The Trialtec one reminds of your service intervals, speed, averages speed, its also LARGE clear and has a backlight.
Serioulsy dont waste your time and effort on a pushbike one.

i went with the bicycle one. i was able to find a long wire (for tandems) unit on sale last year. i cut the wire and ran it inside a piece if small diameter plastic tubing. i think the tubing is for water supply for refrigerator ice makers. the mount was a pain in the a**. i still had to buy the rotor bolt/magnet from trail tech.
a couple minuses. the panoram(bicycle) model that some of us have used is no longer a current model. from what i see in the bicycle catalogs, topeak has replaced it with the "V12". performancebike.com, about $40.00.
minus #2. the bicycle model does not work well for dual sports or enduro's with resets. the distance mode can only be zeroed. the odometer mode can be reset in tenths. even then the unit will default back to the speedo mode after a short time. kind of a pain if your keeping track of milage.
bottom line. the trail tech/topeak units offer a lot for the money. the extra bucks for the trail tech is money well spent.
