I use the Alpine for big stuff and this one for small stuff.

You can get it at most office supply places for less than $30.

ACCURACY WITHIN 0.02KG (for the ebay fishing scale)

thats 20 grams!

buying that would defeat the object

CW advertised the ulimate alpine a while ago, they put the contact details as

2pure, 0131 448 2884

I'm a lazy American that only thinks in pounds and ounces for my overall bike weight, so i use this:

Plus I use it to weigh all the whopping 6 oz bass I catch...

Depends, when I'm weighing a 7kg bike, I can live with that error range for the price!
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
