Handle bar watch

For all you people with the 9er's without a clock, here's an idea(2nd item down on the page). They have a couple other quality things too.

I don't like to think/care much about what time it is when I'm riding.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.

Very observant. It's a Brookstone temp. gauge. [/threadjack]

It's a tiny clock, but yeah I can see it. It's not like it's a mile away. It's right in front of you, so when I want to know the time, I just take a quick look down. Other places it can fit are in the tach's lower right corner and it would not interfere with the view of the tach, but I didn't want to stick it on the plastic lens. It can also stick on the mirror, and not be too noticable, but I plan to replace the mirrors soon. I think this was the best spot for it, since it's out of the way yet not out of the way....if that makes any sense.

I wear a watch. I'd gladly trade my '04 clock for a "gear indicator".

You can see my formotion clock with the handlebar mount in this pic. Don't ask about the pop tart, that's another story. Easy view even with a tankbag.

If you're running above 7 grand, you're in the right gear.

Check out the products that Aerostich has on the link below. Some nice bar mount time and even some temp gauges. I couldn't afford the suits but am probably going to get one of these.

Pretty cool idea. But I was looking through the comments (on the thermometer, not the clock, though), and this is what's been said:

Nice design but terribly inaccurate. Today, it read 20 degrees farentheit too high. -Ben Friedman Sunday, October 8, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bougth the stick-on version of this thermometer from another vendor. Worked OK for about a year. Then on a day that wasn't particularily hot, while sitting in the sun probably, this thing pegged out and the indicator broke off. -Chris Goodfellow Thursday, August 17, 2006

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't buy this! Real junk. Out of the box temp was consistently 7 - 8 degrees off in the house at room temperature. Put in refrigerator, it read closer at 40 degrees but then has a bubble obstructing view. Aerostich needs to discontinue this so folks don't think they sell junk in general. My next step is taking this to the garage and using a 4 lbs sledge hammer on it. Save your money and buy Formotion. -Gary Friday, June 23, 2006


If the thermometer is this bad, and the clock seemed to get just OK reviews, then I would heed the last reviewer's comments and go Formotion too.

Maybe Formotion oughto to sell something similar. It seems to be a good quality for such a tiny piece.
