I've just purchased a 07 Specialized Tricross Sport. It will be more of a general purpose, commuter/tourer/soft offroad bike for me and was considering getting a computer mounted.
What I'm looking for is a simple computer that could be mounted out of the way, on the front fork - ideally on a bike pannier mount. I imagine that because of the shear proximity to the spoke magnet (or whatever), the gaget could be wireless? I'd like to avoid frequent battery changes, so would I be better off going with a wired instrument?
Really, I all care about is that the device has an odometer and possibly a speedometer, so hopefully it could be made very compact.
Also is there a bike computer that does not completely loose it recorded stats. when the battery evently dies? I'd like the instrument to be able continue recording from where it left off.
Thanks very much,
