analog

The analog gauge cost about a buck and does the same job!

Analog

As long as it's accurate, I'll stick with the analog pencil guage. :cool:

They are also a little harder to bend/break, or whatever, when carrying them on a bike.

I also read someplace (I often read someplace :) ) that the accuracy isn't as important as always using the same gauge. It seems as if there are often errors of 1 to 2 psi from the same manufacturer. I don't know, as I've never cared enough to check gauges before I buy one, but the advice seems logical.

p.s. An esteemed editor of one BMW club magazine has written numerous times of "their" unscientific tire check. Seems as if they get a kick out of randomly selecting bikes at rallies and checking the tire pressure. BE IT KNOWN TO ALL that if I find anyone with a tire gauge on my wheels when I'm hundreds or even thousands of mile from home, that I will kick them in the ass and THEN ask then what they are doing. -- Which has absolutely nothing to do with this thread. ;)

I use both. You should always have two gauges no matter what type. That way you can cross check for accuracy.
I like the digital. I can read it.
