I heard from Mike at Stem Captain yesterday. He was just heading out to see his machinist with the final drawings for their new compass. With any luck, it should be available around Thanksgiving.
With the economy being what it is, a Stem Captain would be a very affordable gift for your favorite cyclist this holiday season. Current models include the clock, thermometer, photo frame, and the upcoming compass. Mike also mentioned that there are a few other possible designs on the table, including an inclinometer and a bottle opener. That last item is perfect for the end of a long, hot mountain bike ride.
I’ll post further updates when I get them, and hopefully have photos of the compass soon.
