Well, I received the 2 digital gauges I ordered. One was the one that Fred H suggested. My results were:



This one read 39 Lbs or so.....

This one read 38.5 Lbs....

And this one read 38 Lbs.

At last....consistancy. Those other pencil types read 34 and 43.
I think These are a keeper.

A semi amusing thing happened to me last time I checked my air pressure. I checked the front it was dead on then checked the rear and it read something like 28.5. This kinda freaked me out because they're never low. I mixed up some soapy water in spray bottle and checked the tire and valve stem repeatedly and nothing. I decided to overinflate the tire to about 65 psi just to try and find the leak. Well the compressor I use has a built in gauge which I don't rely on it so I only gave it just a quick glance as I began to air up the tire. It took a second to register with me but what it had initially read was 42 psi. As I was rechecking everything that compressor gauge reading really began to bug me. Come to find out I had inadvertantly changed the readouts pressure mode setting the first time to the metric conversion. I guess that can happen when a single power button cycles thru all the various modes on a digital gauge. The result was nearly an hour of valueable riding time wasted for nought. DUH on me. :oops: Terry

Sears sells accu-gage and one is on sale now for about 7 dollars.
It is the SX-60 that was favorably reviewed in MCN about a year ago.

I had one "ol' trusty" air gauge that I'd been using for a few years.
When I got the wing I purchased a new accu-gage and it was about 4 lbs different than "ol' trusty"
... so I didn't know what to believe.

I got the analog SX-60 from Sears and another digital accu-gauge while I was there (about $20).

Bottom line: all three of the accu-gauges read within .5 lbs of each other.

"ol' trusty" has been retired.

p.s. didn't read the post above mine
... but that is the digital gauge I purchased while at Sears
... very nice LARGE numbers, easy to read.
