I have an image of atp placing a sheep horizontal in the lathe, teasing out
a bit of fleece and running it to a specially made tool (tm) which spins
and weaves it as the sheep rotates along its axis. Like winding a magneto,
only backwards.

No animals were harmed in this imaginary scenario.

Having just spent about 450 miles over the last two days squinting at the
screen on my Nuvi 1690 I'm giving thought to a proper bike GPS. My GPS is
also not waterproof so it might be usefull to have something I don't keep
having to hide in British weather.

Which Bluetooth headset do you use?

> [iv] but not the tyre pressure monitors
These I like the idea of but :
On the gps units page it says they need solid valve stems and mine are
rubber mounted. (It doesn't mention that on the pressure monitors web page)
They keep saying "Not for automotive use". Which is so obviously a get out
clause for something that appears to have very little other use.
