Just received the new thermometer stem cap from Stem Captain .  It's clearly registering the temperatrure accurately so far, it's dead on with my home thermostat temps.  The temperatures here in Bend are hovering in the 30's so I'm not sure I will be getting outdoors for a ride soon, although I am curious to put the stem cap to use.

Here is a photo of the thermometer I received.

Once I get in some test rides with it outdoors I will post a full review.  I have to say that I am impressed with the construction of the cap.  It was delivered in a secured plastic case and with full instructions how to install.
Head on over to Stem Captain and find one for yourself.

New product sponsor

Have you heard of Stem Captain?  If you haven't, head over here to check them out.  I was fortunate to come in contact with the owner, Mike, and he was generous enough to offer sponsorship.  This is one of the coolest bike accessories I have seen in a while.  They offer clocks, compasses, picture frames (you know you like to paste a photo of your loved one or children on your bike) and even thermometers to replace your stem caps with.

No longer do you need to look at your wrist or push some buttons on your cyclometer to see the time or temperature.  How cool is it to know the temperature while riding/racing.  Located in Colorado, their products can be purchase directly from their website,, or through QBP.  They are a locally owned and operated small business offering a price point of $15 - $25, this is one addition to your bike you should make.  Your friends will be jealous.  Worried about it getting ruined in the rain?  No need to worry, they are sealed waterproof.  I should be getting a thermometer soon and will post a photo and share some feedback as well.  Stay tuned.
