Mine is digital, very basic, can show PSI or BAR, no hose, straight connector at a right-angle to the body of the unit. It measures in increments of 0.5 PSI. I will post a pic if you really want but it's just a cheap unit. I'm thinking of getting one that does increments of 0.1 PSI.

But... what about brand/model?

Any good recomendation? Michelin? Accutire? Other?

Cheers again ;)
This is the one I use.

-measurements in: PSI, Bar, kPa, kg-CM.
-turnable connector.
-release button for excessive pressure.
-indication for the battery. Have used this one for two years with the same battery.
-CE marking

I'm satisfied with it.

Guys, when I worked at Michelin in racing we tested lots of tire gauges for accuracy in our labs. We also had a calibration station on the truck.

The most accurate gauges we found (used most all the F1 teams) are made by Intercomp http://www.intercomp-racing.com/. We used the digital ones. OK, they're not cheap. I don't have much experience with thier analog guages but they're a good company whose base company is in aerospace.

One of the best little analog gauges we tested was made by Schrader for Michelin. Look about half way down the page once you open the link. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=277242 Great liitle gauge, is in both Bar and PSI and can normally find some place to fit on a bike. I've had one for quite a long time and it still remains accurate, is quite durable and easy to use as it fits in the palm of your hand.

Cheers
