    Back before the scrap guys hawked up all the scrap metal, I picked up a couple of exercize bikes - different brands, but both had neat little speedometers on them. Of course, I saved them.
    I found this one to be exactly calibrated for the 24 inch mountain bike tire I am running. Used a Schwinn bike computer to check it.
