Cyclecomputer on Dahon Mu P8 ?
 
Hey, i was trying to install a Cat Eye cyclecomputer on my Dahon Mu P8 but to no avail... it seems like the wire is too short especially when folding and i have to extend the handle post..... attaching the wire to the brake cable in the old traditional way just doesn't do the trick....... any ideas ?

Thanks !

I think you may need to get a new mount with a longer wire. I think Cat Eye may have a mount with a longer wire to install on the rear wheel, so in this case the wire should be long enough.

Rather than getting a new wire/harness, consider getting a wireless instead?
I did install a cateye wired computer on my Mu, before realizing that the magnet won't fit on the front (radially laced) wheel. :P

I just picked up the Cateye Vectra Wireless Cyclecomputer which is on sale right now at Performance Bike. It is pretty basic, but works well. One thing to note is that since it is wireless, it must accept any kind of interference. I was waiting at a stop light yesterday and noticed that it started registering 42mph. My best guess is that someone in their car was using some kind of wireless thing? No big deal though, I just noted how much distance was added and manually subtracted it out.

Even a wired cyclecomputer is prone to errors induced by interference, however it is more so the case with a wireless one.
