Re: It's all in the name - Cyclists' TOURING club

Speedometer

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive speedometer with 3 main criteria...

...wireless
...auto starts
...with a save odo function (for when the battery runs out)

...I've checked online the many types out there but cannot find one under £30 that meets all my needs

Many thanks

Re: The War on Britain's Roads
