If I had one I would program the computer to think I had larger wheels/tires than I actually do so that it would report higher speeds. Then the paceline would respect me!

Does it come with an 'exaggerate' button in case you're having a bad day and are embarrassed about your speed?

Pfft, I'd set it low. Find some guy giving it his all, and pass him at about twelve miles an hour...
