Lap timer placement - May 20, 2009, 10:43 PM

Simple question....

Where would be the ideal placement for a laptimer?

I was thinking a tail mount, but idea's/photo's of recommendations would be a great help.

Thanks,
n8

Dont duct tape it to the top of the tail - I just tried that and I guess the wind caused it to wiggle and it scratched through the paint on the tail pretty bad in 1 spot.

Don't put it where you can read it while riding.

mine is usually upfront on the bike, but if its anywhere I can see the screen I usually place a peice of painters tape over the screen, leaving just enough exposed so I can tell when I've turned it on. Handy things post race or track session, but really distracting while you're riding

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

I'm definitely going to do this next trackday. I'm guilty of peeking down at it while riding.

Thanks for the idea's.

I ended up mounting it on the tail with the timer under the seat (no temptation to look what so ever).
