Not bad for under 7 bucks! I think it only comes in metric, though, doesn't it? (kms, not miles) Looks like a good deal if it works, though!

beware the dreaded cdi/vibration interference. people commonly experience problems with the digital speedos, but there are lots of solutions around too.

good discussion here, there's at least one other thread if you search.


I've never had an issue with a digital speedo on any of my builds. Guess I've just been lucky with that. I use the common schwinn digital wired speedos found at wallyworld.

I know a guy who had problems with his CDI causing interferance with his digital speedo. I don't remember what brand it was. He ended up switching to a traditional mechanical one.

The digital speedometers seem to work for some bikes, but not for others. If you do get one to work, & it isn't accurate, go back to the directions & change the setting for tire sizes. No matter what size tire you actually have, keep re-setting it til you get it to be more accurate. If you know someone who has a GPS, it is a snap. A " Cyclops " wireless [ $20 on sale at Performance Bicycles ] works on mine.

I just got my cheap bicycle speedometer which did cost only $6.37 shipped to my door.

Mph + clock + lotsa functions.
I mounted mine with double sided 3m foam tape, and RV GOOP.
So far very Nice!
