I thought about doing something like this, especially for long trips. Just can't justify the expense yet. Be nice to know what your pressures are at a glance and not having the hassle of breaking out the pressure guage all the time.

Wonder why these haven't found their way onto more factory bikes yet.

I'd really be interested in tire temps, especially on the track or during spirited rides.

I think it also be pretty useful when riding on cold days, maybe give you a better idea of how much you can push the tire

I think it's on a couple of factory bikes. It's all about producing bikes at a low cost. It's just one of those things that you have to customize for yourself. Mods, mods, mods!!! Make your bike what you want it to be.

I bet that would be a $300-$400 option on a bike if they even offered it. So $160 and being able to do it yourself isn't such a bad deal really. That's the way I look at it.

I bought one about a year ago. I never put it on my bike though because I am lazy. So I installed it in the sole of my Reebok pumps. I have never balled so hard before. Whenever I miss a shot I just look down at the sensor and most of the time it's because the pressure was too low. Give em a couple pumps and I'm going hard in the paint once again.
