Wanted (Alive): Aftermarket vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

Brief history: I was using the VSS signal from my combination meter with the MPGuino but this had its drawbacks; with the ignition switch off, the combo meter shuts off as well, and that means the 'Guino thinks I'm going 0MPH. Not a huge issue though.

However, since I apparently fried my VSS sensor when I accidentally shorted it to the battery, I'm exploring my options.

I'm interested in finding an inexpensive 'always on' speed sensor, perhaps one similar to those used on bicycles. Do they exist? Could I use one meant for a bicycle and just dial in the VSS PPMs?

I tried searching the net but nothing's turned up so far. I think I just don't know where to look.
