Looking to put a clock on your bike? Dont buy those expensive
ones. Go to Walmart and get one of their 5 to 7 dollar specials.
Cut the ears off with some good size diagonal cutters. (dont
use a grinder, trust me). use double side tape for automotive
trim and tape it to your bike. I have one on my 1600 and
dont I hafta to keep pressing the dam button on the gas tank or
looking at my wrist.

Check out Cyclecraft Engineering, they make Handlebar Clamps with FORMOTION clocks in them. Just remember you get what you pay for, and it was worth the money I spent to get a quality component form what I think is a quality company. There website is www.cyclecrafteng.com. They also give you a choice of either White or Black face clock so that you can match the color to your speedo.

If you have to have the best to keep up with the Jones then.
please go ahead. I can do more with less and it looks just as
good as the expensive toys. Riding a bike is about having fun
and seeing what you can do with your imagination, if spending
big bucks is your calling, feel free to support the economy.
I looked at their products locally it just was not worth the
money. I still have money left over to buy gas and feed the
dog and when the watch quits Im just out 5 bucks.

True for most. Others use thier bike to commute and may have a need to know the time.

A $5 clock probably won't cut it if it gets wet. :cry:

I thought about a clock and then decided that since I don't use the bike to commute and do use it for FUN, what's the point. I ain't in a real big rush to get anywhere. I can look at my Timex periodically.

Unless you are commuting, kick back and enjoy. Who gives a **** what time it is. :wink:

I agree with this statement except the one Saturday I decided to get in a a quick ride before we headed out to the sprint car races. As I was heading home, feeling good, with so many miles behind me, I was passing by the race track and couldn't understand why all the cars were at the track in the middle of the afternoon. A quick check of my wristwatch told me I had been gone much longer than I had expected.

I shot over to I-5 to get home faster and was met with bitter faces all packed for the races. I had to appologize to the kids but all ya'll know how time flies when out on a warm sunny day.

I've looked at a lot of clocks online, and I was thinking about ordering one from Cyclecraft. Then I thought... duh! My GPS has a clock on it! And I just ordered a mount for it. My GPS is water resistant, too. So that problem is solved!

Those Cyclecraft clocks sure do look nice, though.

I was suprised to find the clock built in to the odometer on my 04 Nomad, I normally don't care what time it is but sometimes you just gotta know
