    cyclocomputer

    As I am using my bike mounted on a indoor trainer I need a computer pickup for the rear wheel. My computer wire won't reach the rear of the bike. So I am looking for a new cyclocomputer. Will a wireless computer work, or any suggestion for a computer with a pickup long enough to reach the rear of the bike.

    Do you know if the astrale 8 has a front or rear speed sensor? I know the old CD100 has a rear sensor. Nashbars catalog (astrale 8) says it has a front speed sensor, their web site says it's a REAR sensor?

    They make long wire harnesses for applications like this. I've got one for my Mitty 3 that I use on my commuter bike

    The Topeak Panoram has a long wire version for rear wheel sensor on the rear. You could piece together some extra wiring if you wnat to do it on the cheap.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Cool. Maybe they got so many complaints that they changed back.
    Where did you buy it from? Performance?
