    cateye strada wireless + Edelux headlight

    I am building up my perfect bike with a dynamo hub and will probably get the Edelux headlight for it. My GF very nicely just bought me a Cateye Strada wireless computer as a gift! i have heard stories of the headlamps interfering with the wireless computers. Will this be a problem? Should I ask her to return the cateye or trade it for a wired one while she still can?
    Thanks....

    this is what Bikeradar had to say in in its review:

    "Aside from its simplicity, one of the best things about it is the fact that high powered LED and HID lights did not affect it, it carried on working well no matter how much we tried to interfere with it. "

    Is this true? if so, I will be happy to keep it

    It seems likely that a dyno powered light will not have the switching circuitry that seems to drive this computer nuts. Dynos and LEDs are compatible without much electronics. Batteries and LEDs usually need a controller to work together. Modern controllers will have switching frequencies that interfere with a poorly designed radio.
