Thanks Mark , the Smiths one looks the business , it is 82mm and will it fit in one of your pods which I think are 80mm ? G

I think the Smiths one Mark has linked to is built into a pod from the outset as it is designed for a motorbike.
It may be removeable and have its own case, it may not! I'd contact them and ask.

I've got the Stack one in my hill climber, it also has gear shift and maximum rev memory built into it.

Supplied with a chrome bezel and black billet aluminium casing with mounting points at the traditional 12 and 6 o'clock positions.
