    Park or Alpine digital scale?

    Looking to buy a digital scale, not the table version but the kind you hang your bike on. Any trouble with either of these, Park or Alpine?

    or just get a rapalla fish scale from your local hardware store. Cheaper and the same accuracy.

    I've had good luck with my Alpine, no problems.

    Best, John

    I bought one of these and it works great. It has been accurate so far.

    You want a scale that is for use within the range that you plan to use it for as that gives better accuracy.

    You also want one that has a decent size hook to it, which allows you hook it around your top tube for weighing. If the hook is too small, you're left to hooking your saddle, or rigging up something else to hang it by.

    Had a Park, not accurate. It awalys gave me different numbers. Also annoying is it automatically stops at the weight reading.
    Bought myself an Alpine now. Much. much better.

    I tested the fishing scales, the accuracy is all over the map, spend the extra money and get the Feedback Sports Alpine scale
