    Gear Indicator

    Has anyone retrofitted a TW with a gear indicator? If so, then what product did you use and how did it turn out? This looks interesting:

    Looks pretty cool.

    I wouldn't put that much effort/money into knowing what gear I'm in though.
    Especially on a TW.
    There will never be a 6th gear (on my bike), and the bottom 3 are only good for starting out.

    Might reduce those excessive upshifts into sixth gear although unlike Smitty I spend most of my time in the bottom three gears.
