I just ordered a bike computer from REI. It is a Sigma BC1009. I am very particular with my bike so I spent quite a while routing the wire, getting everything just right on my new Vent Noir. So I get it all done, the housing, wire, sensor and all are attached and I clip in the computer and the housing shatters.
What is a good solid computer? I have a Vette or something on my mountain bike that has been solid for like 4 years of abuse. I want something I can mount in the middle of the bar, on the headset preferably. I don't need anything fancy, I just need distance, mph, clock, that kind of thing.
I am sort of getting sick of buying stuff online and might be taking my business to my LBS more as the frustration of dealing with this kind of thing is not worth the savings.
I also bought a pair or biking shoes that fit, but aren't quit wide enough. I thought they would break in but they haven't yet.
I found a few biking computers on
these sites for pretty cheap. I am not into cheap stuff normally but these look more solid than that mount for the sigma I have(had).
