    Pyramid Speedometer/Odometer Installation

    I purchased this item from Niagara Cycle Works and received it promptly. Their price was more appealing than RDS Bikes. This type of instrument was common years ago but the older ones were made of metal and had a small diameter metal wheel attached to the spokes. The disc was perforated near the outside edge and a metal gear meshed with the disc to drive the speedometer cable which in turn operated the speedometer and odometer. This made in China product is genuine plastic. While not the quality of the old American models, it operates very well and for the money I am most satisfied with it. It is easy to read while riding compared to the electronic models which can be very difficult due to light reflection. The installation is very simple. Noting a complaint regarding lack of instructions, here is how installation is done: The accessory has 3 basic parts - the head (as pictured above), the drive cable and the drive gear assembly. Starting at the bottom, the drive gear has a metal arm... 4/5 Ward Boote "Bootlegger" (Wyalusing, PA in The Heart of the Endless Mountains)) - See all my reviews, April 27, 2007

    Mounting Instructions

    After struggling for some time with the speedometer without instructions I decided to write a short instruction--I hope it will help without pictures. The main idea is that the speedometer is attached to middle right side of the handlebar and the grey round plastic part that turns inside the suspension forks of the front wheel on the right. Then just attach the short black cable and you are done. I can't believe that they dared to sell this item without instructions; therefore only three stars. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars because it is great fun and EASY to read. And you do not have the problem that the display turns black when the sun shines on it, which can be the case with the electronic speedometers.1. Attach the speedometer with the large black plastic screw to the metal mounting bracket by aligning it with the two indentations. Make sure the speedometer is not upside down. (Do not remove the two screws at the bottom of the speedometer)2. Then attach... 3/5 Joseph (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect for my cruiser

    0 5/5 Andy "Andres Gunther" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AceList Old School Style Bicycle Speedometer Fits 26-27in. Wheels (Sports) Old School, as the name says! I installed it on my "weekend cruiser" (a Nirve Fifty Three). The installation was quite a procedure, but now that I have it in place and working it looks like original, and I love it! It is pretty accurate, too.It can be installed on the left or right side of the front wheel, and the cable is just long enough to be routed straight up to a standard handlebar. As noted, the installation is rather tricky, and in case of doubt should be left to an experienced mechanic. A DIYer who knows how to do it can have lots of fun, however.This speedometer looks best on a vintage or classic looking bike or cruiser; I wouldn't recommend it for Mountain, sports or motorized bikes. I added some pics for the interested. 0, December 19, 2014

    A nice speedo that has a smooth action, easy to install.

    0 5/5 aloekat - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AceList Old School Style Bicycle Speedometer Fits 26-27in. Wheels (Sports) I put my speedometer on a Walmart 26" Schwinn cruiser. I also have a china 2 stroke motor on it, my bike is a lot of fun to ride and this speedo helps set the pace as I ride to work everyday. The vibration from the motor does not affect it at all and I was surprised how steady the needle is, even going down hill at 25 mph. I cruise about 20 mph and peddle about 5 mph. Only 50 miles on the speedo so far but seems to operate dependably. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 4, 2013

    Perfect Bike with 2 notable flaws

    Bought this bike on a whim as there were few reviews for this specific model. Most reviews on their site is for their fixed gear bike.Product arrived in one large box, make sure you are there when the package man arrives otherwise you may have to haul the over sized package from a ups/FedEx drop facility which I imagine would be challenging.Inside the bike was mostly assembled as claimed by the manufacturer. However there were not any instructions in the box. The instructions on the website were for their fixed gear bike. However taking stock of the parts it seemed like it only needed a few screws here and there, and the front wheel installed. I used the detailed picture view on amazon and the manufacturer website to see where things go. Customer support was very quick in answering questions.Once assembled I took it to the bike shop for brake tuning which cost 15 dollars.On the first couple of rides, it rides beautifully, minor issues,... 4/5 Gold N Boy (Chicago) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great bike for the price

    I got one of these for my birthday, and love it. I got the cream color, large size. It's not perfect, and I will tell you why not, but it is solid and rides well and is a great looking value.There is a .url on the cardboard box the bike is shipped in, you will need it to assemble the bike unless you already know how to put bikes together (lucky me, my bf does and did mine for me). The pictorial assembly instructions can be found at [...] Yes, all of the tools are included. Yes, you can ride it right after it's put together if you've done it correctly. Don't blame the bike for your limitations. All parts were intact and undamaged, though the nut of the rear wheel had poked through the cardboard when I got it. But nothing was damaged.Downsides:The light. The light is a silly thing. Not only do you have to completely unscrew the casing and fight with it to get the batteries in, it is a plastic POS (as other reviewers have noted) AND does not install... 4/5 zutsalors "consumer" (hawaii) - See all my reviews This review is from: Critical Cycles Dutch Style Step-Thru 7-Speed Shimano Hybrid Urban Commuter Road Bicycle (Sports) I got one of these for my birthday, and love it.

    Sort of happy with this bike.

    I bought this bike a few months back when there were only 2 reviews on here for it. For starters, it doesn't come with any instructions on how to assemble. They advertise it as being so easy to assemble, with the tool included. Big selling point for me since I know nothing about bikes and wanted something cute and affordable. The website listed on the side of the box was strictly for assembly of a fixie, which this bike is not. I took out all the pieces, watched the video once and realized I would NOT be able to do it myself. Took it to the shop and had it built there. It really is a good looking bike from afar. Every little bump in the road is felt though, maybe should have considered a bike with suspension for these mean, flat surfaced, paved streets. I got caught in a rainstorm for 5 minutes one night home. Put it in garage (where it is always kept, away from the elements) and was unable to dry it off but since it was the only time I have gotten it wet I didn't think it'd be a... 3/5 Chris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Worked after I completely disassembled it and cleaned it

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (Wayne, NE) - See all my reviews This review is from: Speedometer Action 20" W/reversible Drive Bicycle Needle stuck and registered incorrectly (way too fast) when I installed it. I took the head completely apart and cleaned all the parts. They seemed covered in corn syrup. I cleaned them all in soapy water (all plastic parts) and reassembled the head. It seems OK now. I swear it is a leftover from the 70's when I had one on my little schwinn 20". It is IDENTICAL to the one I had. Works well now, and cable is tough enough to stand up. My son had a digital one, but the front wheel spun around and snapped the tiny little wire, so we are giving this a shot as I dont want to spend 50+ on wireless versions. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 5, 2009

    Cheap feel

    0 3/5 James Slavens - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Speedometer Action 20" W/reversible Drive Bicycle I mounted this on my son's schwinn stingray junior and it works okay. It has a very low-quality feel to it. I only have 20" measured from axle to handlebar and so there is quite the cable bow out in-front of the bike, in fact it matches the foward reach of the front tire. Too much to run staight up and not enough to route it back around through the frame and up. Oh well, as long as it doesn't rub the tire, it should be okay. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that the unit calibration is WAY off... it doesn't take much past a fast roll for the speedometer to read 10 mph, but who cares... It makes my 6yo happy to think that he's cruising at relatively high speeds and me happy that he's really not. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 10, 2013

    First time installer

    0 3/5 Cumberland Mines - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Speedometer Action 20" W/reversible Drive Bicycle Not impossible, but tough to instal. Looked on YouTube to see how vintage speedometers should be installed. Nice option is that you can install on right or left side of tire. Just switch black cap on drive. A little difficult to fit tire hub back onto fork because drive is thick. Still trying to tweak with washers to stop drive from rubbing spokes. The dial on speedometer adds mileage when turned and my 3 year old added about 120 miles to my daughters speedometer. She wasn't happy. She does enjoy riding faster and further and wants to ride all the time. Good for the money. I suggest taking dial pin out. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 9, 2012

This review is from: Critical Cycles Dutch Style Step-Thru 1-Speed Hybrid Urban Commuter Road Bicycle (Sports) I received this bike and couldn't wait to open it. It looks great put together...if you can figure it out without any instructions. They give you a website to go to but it's a YouTube video of a some other bike from a different brand being put together. It's great looking if u can get it all together. I am still waiting to ride it as I did not receive the screw that tightens the seat in place and will have to buy one somewhere. Also, the kickstand is angled so far forward that the bike tips the other way if I try to stand it up. Oh yeah...the back fender rubs the tire so I will have to bend that. Also two reflectors didn't come with any mounts and I have two screws left over that are mismatched to each other but don't fit the bike. And....the rack is loose. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 8, 2013
