Two cautionary notes have been added to as follows:


The manufacturer of the Veeder-Root counter used on the Jones counter recommends that rotation not exceed 500 rpm. In riding terms this amounts to about 15 mph or 25 km/hr. Many get away with riding faster, but forewarned is forearmed. Overspeed may cause damage to the working parts of the counter.

Several old pre-JR model counters have been received for rehab. On some it is hopeless and we can’t help. One cause is a buildup of black gummy material in the main gear joint. We recommend that no lubricant be used in this joint, as it attracts dirt, and can turn into a sticky paste.

I mount my bike on a rack that does not lock down the wheels. More than once I have looked back to see my front wheel spinning crazy fast and had to pull over to fix.  I use a small bungee cord to wrap around the brake handle to prevent the wheel from spinning. 

Reminds me of the time my wife left her Fitbit attached to her bra and sent it through the washer and dryer. That day she racked up 20,000 steps.
