Default Bicycle GPS



I needa GPS. Has anyone tried some of the small bicycle ones?
They are fairly reasonable and state that they will measure max speed
I only use one to help in tuning and prop selection.
Comments?

I've been using the Garmin Foretrex 101 for a couple years now and love it, search eBay and you can usually find Reman Units for under $100. You can set it so the Max Speed fills the screen for easy viewing. They are water proof but the week spot is the seal on the battery lid after opening and closing it 100 times or so I use [link=http://www.permatex.com/products/automotive/lubricants/specialty_lubricants/auto_Permatex_Dielectric_Tune-Up_Grease_1.htm]Dielectric Grease[/link] packed inside the battery compartment to prevent water seepage.

You can see it here mounted in my cowl

Sounds like a winner. I see a lot of them on Ebay.
I will try for one.

Thanks Amax.
