    i had an analog speedometer on my bike when i was a kid. so 25 years ago or so. looked just like a car speedometer, a needle for speed, and an odometer. probably costs less to make the digital ones these days.

    lol actually i may still have it, the bike may lurking around my parents house somewhere, was a star 10 speed if memory serves, no reason the speedometer wouldnt still be on it.
    No matter how fast I'm going, I'm in no hurry.
    there are no bicycles in the valley, the only bicycle you find in the valley is the bicycle you ride down there.
    Ride in the front, this space is available to anyone that wishes to take it-jjmolyet

    The analog speedos have to measure the speed by contact w/ the wheel, while it doesn't slow you down much at all, it's not frictionless like the digital ones. Maybe they make a digital analog speedo nowadays

    You like gauges? Check out Shimano's old CI-Deck for their Comfort series!



    For those that like to make their bicycles look like motorcycles.

    (Actually, these are more guages than most motorcycles have!)


    p.s. Oh yeah, I think there's a tach in there somewhere...

    Hi,
    this doesn't quite fit the question; but I think it's cool in it's own way

    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
