One trip computer for two bikes

I'd like to use one head unit on two bikes (one road the other mb) in order to keep a track of my riding. Any recommendations anyone?

Cheers,

Mick

It is more spendy, but a Sigma BC-2006 can be used on two bikes. In addition to the initial outlay you will need to buy a kit for the second bike consisting of a magnet, mounting bracket and wireless sensor. The BC-2006 does go through batteries about every month, unless you take them out when not in use. But, it does keep mileage tallies for each bike separate. You can even program different wheel sizes for the two bikes. The unit automatically knows which bike it is on and adds to the correct total.

You can get a second bike kit for most cyclocomputers. Some models are smart enough to automatically sense which bike you are using.
