DB4Lw-c $20. Multiline display easy to read. Has cadence, but cadence is not wireless.

Good luck. Don't ride with a BlackBerry. Don't ride in a city with lots of wireless interference. Don't ever make or receive a call on your cellphone. Don't worry if your wireless computer shows your top speed at 99.9 km/h. Maybe I was just unlucky, but it took me two unsuccessful attempts to use two different wireless computers before I gave up and bought wired.

Bought 2 Sigma 1200 wireless back in March, one for my son, one for me. After a couple weeks his failed. Took it back. After about a couple months mine failed. Took it back. Failed again after another 2 weeks. Took it back for a Sigma 1600 wired. Also got a wired system for my son.

All the failures seemed to be with the received on the handle bar.

I've got a Cateye Cordless 7 and generally it works pretty well. Occasionally it reports a max speed of 80 mph or something ridiculous like that but that's the only problem so far.

I've been using a Cateye Micro Wireless (model
CC-MC100W) for several months now and it's been great. No goofiness at all, except for the past few days it's been intermittently registering the speed/distance on the head unit. Went to Rat Shack today and got a new battery for the sensor for $3.10 and voila! - all is well again.

I have the wired Sigma 1200 and it works great. I tried using the wireless transmitter for half a day and disliked it enough to drive back out to REI and return it. Now I'm back to the plain wired 1200 and have no regrets.
