    Default Zumo tire pressure monitoring caps

    Any input on the caps that read the tire PSI to your Zumo?

    I have them on my Spyder I thought they were very expensive for what you're getting but I do like them I don't have to crawl under the bike to check the air pressure in the rear tire which is really convenient.

    I've not considered buying because Garmin says they are supposed to go on metal valve stems and I see no need to change them at this point. They are pricey too. The weekly manual tire pressure check is part of my routine and it helps me keep an eye on the belt and rear sprocket for junk.

    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    I don't have the Zumo, but I have the FOBOBike TPMS (http://www.fobobikesales.com/index.php). It works off your smartphone, not your GPS. I love it. Easy to install. Seems accurate. Will send a warning to your phone (and into your helmet if you have BT) if the pressure falls below a threshold that you set. Nice not to have to get on the ground every time to check the rear tire. I agree with the periodic belt and sprocket check, but I don't do that every time I jump on, so it's still nice to know the tire pressure every time I ride.

    Thanks for the response. Did you do any modifications to the tires or valve stems. I've heard something about the centrifugal force of the tire tearing the valve stems?

    I did not, I left the original valve stems on. I have about 8000 miles on my new Spyder with the sensors and had no problems.
