Tire pressure monitor
Does anyone have any experience with using an aftermarket tire pressure monitor? After doing some online research the Doran looks promising in that they identify the K12GT specifically in that their sensor will fit properly on the front tire valve stem with enough clearance to miss any parts while the wheel is turning.
The other one that I have been looking at is the Tiregard TPMS. I like the looks of this one for two reasons. First, it's 50 dollars cheaper than the Doran, and secondly, I am only really interested in a device that will give me a pressure check first thing before I ride. The ability to look at my tire pressure while driving down the road isn't a real priority for me. I'm a big fan of "keeping it simple". The question I have about the Tiregard is if their would be enough clearance of the sensor when mounted on the front tire.
If anyone has any input or first hand experience with either of these two products (or any other brand) I sure would appreciate the advice.
Initial Success, or Total Failure.
