    Wireless speed and wireless cadence

    Please can any one recommend to me a computer that features wireless speed and wireless cadence. Other than Shimano Flightdeck. A backlight feature would be useful but that doesn't really matter.

    Thanks.

    Sigma 1606L DTS with cadence. Has wireless speed and cadence and backlight plus it's a great computer.

    Garmin 305 has all that and backlighting also.. The best part of the garmin is that it works regardless if you buy the extra speed/cadence sensors.. Just buy an extra mount and you are done.. This is great if you have a lot of bikes.. I like the fact that the speed sensor is in the rear so you can get info when using the turbo trainer..

    I just installed the 1606L. It is excellent, has backlight and a wack of other functions.

    I bought from geargurl on e-bay, a good price and free shipping: http://cgi.ebay.com/Sigma-Sport-BC-1...QQcmdZViewItem

    Thanks all!

    The Sigma 1606L looks perfect for my needs. Costs more than I was hoping to pay but I can't have it all apparently. Any other users of it willing to comment on the build quality, ease of use of its software ect... ?

    Build Quality is exactly what you would expect for being made in Germany and costing around $100. Excellent. It is very easy to use. If you can set a clock you will have no trouble with the 1606L

    Is your Polar CS200cad an older model? The product description states that there is a semi-automatic backlight so I'm a bit confused as to the back lighting features of this product. I just ordered one of these so I sure hope there is a back light as most of my riding is done when dark right now.

    Thanks!

    The Cateye CD300DW will fill the bill. It has wireless speed and wireless cadence from one unit that is mounted in the rear. It also has backlighting.

    I have had a tough time sourcing the 300DW here in the UK. Plenty of 200's but no 300.

    Found one once but it was more expensive than the Sigma 1606L DTS with Cadence, which I have ordered through my LBS.

    Well, I just got my CS200cad and it does have a back-light which I found out how to activate by reading page 24 in my manual. So, either it's just a newer feature of the CS200cad that was added to new revisions with the same model number. I dunno. I'm glad that it does, otherwise I'd need to return it for a different model. Thanks!
