Computers on a mountain bike. What do you guys prefer? I am wireless on the roadbike and I don't see any reason why it would not work fine on my mountain bike but being a MTB newbie.....I figured I would ask
If anything, wireless makes even more sense on a MTB than a roadbike. No cables to get ripped in crashes or when going through scrub.

I have the Polar CS200 on my roadie. I am thinking about just getting another speed pickup and head mount for the mountain bike. Thanks for the reply

Wireless is also a bit easier to install on a bike with a long travel fork. Taping the wire to the front brake hose never looks all that great.
Wireless, no questions asked.

Although it may cause problems with HR monitors, HID lights, and some higher-wattage LED systems.
Why does that sound like the disclaimer from a pharmaceutical advertisment?

My old "Wired" computer, even though the wire professionally and neatly wrapped around my brake cables and fork legs, got ripped off when i rode through some scrub.
Wireless computers aren't much more expensive, perform the same, are less hassle and don't get in the way. Simple choice ;)
