"push bike" multi-function "computers?
i 'm going to fit one of these speedo/clock/trip......etc units to my bike,...any recommendations?
some are wireless, with arange of 70mm?
do they work reliably?
any models give over 70mm?
thanks for any info
thanks for the info freek,
i agree with your comments re wireless
There's another, cheaper, option: the Sigma push bike computers have high enough max speed for motorbikes.
A few types: 600, 700, 800 (and more).
We find the 700 best with all the necesarry features:
- clock (CLK)
- speed (KMH/MPH)
- trip distance - which we use as day trip metre (TRP)
- odometre = total kilometres (DST)
- riding time - auto start/stop (STP)
- maximum speed (MAX)
- average speed (AVS)
Just bought another one for a friend at 22,5 euro.
Bit of creativity for attachment to the much-too-large spokes of a motorbike (if you buy it at a Gericke shop, they come with a device (small stick-on magnet) for wheels without spokes too), but we have them for each of our bikes now, and they last and last and last.
The wire also needs to be lengthened.
Battery life is very long (1-2 years). You can --and have to-- take them off when leaving the bike, but that makes it even nicer: excellent for writing down the day's statistics in your hotel room or tent.
Wonderful tiny and cheap gadget !

Here's the Sigma cycle computer I put on my Concours:
The problem with the Sigma is that there is no way to turn it off so after a couple of months the battery is dead. Also, to change from Km's to miles, you have to reset the tire size. Cateyes do the arithmetic internally. It's a simple calculation so I don't know why Sigma didnt'program it in. Unfortunately, Cateye craps out around 60 mph or so.
