Tire pressure monitor


Recommended Posts

Is anyone running a tire pressure monitor on their T7 and what kind? I recently picked up a nail while riding hard on a rough trail. Tube was toast by the time I released and got stopped. With a stiff tire and very loose surface. Sometimes I find it hard to tell at first if the Squirrelyness is the terrain or the tire. A monitor would have alerted me sooner

@Richarddd,  I've been running a battery operated one for about 2 years, with decent results.  Eventually the recharging got to be a pain and I ended up running a charging cord from the 12v aux port and just leave it plugged in.  My son put one of these solar powered units on his T7 and likes it. The only draw back is it's hard to read in direct sunlight, but I normally just use mine for an pre ride check and not much while moving.  Regarding accuracy,  its usually reading about 1-2 psi low, but it beats pulling out a gauge everytime.
