I was reading through this thread:
So many computers, what to do?
And found out that someone does make a wired speedometer with a backlight! Yaaah!...sorta.
I'm looking for a wired (not wireless) speedometer that has a backlight.
These are the two I found:
Niterider Rebel 1.0 - http://www.niterider.com/computer_rebel1.shtml
Sigma BC1606L - http://www.sigmasport.com/us/produkt...wired/bc1606l/
Both have a backlight, but the Niterider requires pressing and holding a button for 2 seconds in order to get 5 seconds of light, while the Sigma appears to turn on either when you press any button, or immediately when you press 2 buttons simultaneously, so it looks more promising. Both appear to easily mount either on the bars or the stem - awesome, as I was just thinking about how I could move mine to the stem. Neither has a temperature reading, which seems like it would be fun, but oh well. The Sigma has this habit of hiding certain info (like the odometer) while you're riding which I find annoying though (and the manual listed no way to turn that off), you have to buy a 2nd bracket to switch wheel sizes (I don't switch speedometers, but I do switch between 35c studded tires in the winter and 28c tires in the summer). The NiteRider has no 2nd wheel size setting at all.
So if you have either, could you answer a couple of questions?
1. How easy is it to turn on the backlight?
2. How easy it is to reset your trip data? On the Sigma, I couldn't find a way with their online demo to reset all the trip data at once, though I expect I'm just missing something.
3. Does it automatically turn on when you start riding?
Thanks - also, if anyone else knows of another *wired* speedometer that has a backlight I'd love to hear about it... :-)
