computer - control buttons

Hi: I'm changing my bike over to Sram from Shimano. Over the years, I've really come to like the Shimano Flight Deck computers. Mostly because I really like the button controls on the hoods.

I don't want to debate whether I'm a dweeb for liking this, I do and that's where I'm coming from.

Are there any computers that somehow have buttons that can be mounted somewhere so I don't ahve to touch the computer head to scroll through functions etc?

Thanks.

If you like the Cateye Strada Double Wireless, there is the remote kit for it:

thanks for the pointer. This is indeed what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, it looks like it doesn't work with the Strada Double Wireless, but with a previous model line which cost about twice as much (CD300DW & HR200DW)

Totally agree. There is no need to debate it. You are a dweeb. And even better, you totally cop to it! What more could a troll ask for?
