ATTN:Streetfighters: Bicycle Speedo - June 18, 2007, 07:23 PM

Anyone running a bicycle speedo on their bike.Picked up a digital speedo this weekend and am having problems setting up the "spoke magnet"

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Ok, for that size I have drilled a round half sunk hole the same size as the magnet in the rear sprocket... then used gorrila glue.

Do you know how to solder? Maybe I'm thinking about it wrong, but I wouldn't imagine it to be too hard to extend the leads, or just connect some longer wires to the speedo...

I put a bike speedo on one of my bikes in the past, I ended up needing to buy a more powerfull magnet, it stoped regestering speed after about 30mph.

I've seen a lot of motorcycles with bike computers attached to them. Not a ghetto move of any sort. Gives you more options for speed, avg speed, top speed, another trip odometer, etc.
