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!

If I'm riding 15 mph and stuck behind some guy showing "25 mph" on the back of his vest, that's not going to whomp up a lot of respect in my mind.

The guy could use the excuse that it's in KPH.....would be pretty close.

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