    computer/lights mounting

    My SWB Bacchetta is finally painted and being assembled as I write. I need to get reactions and suggestions on the mounting of cycling computers as well as lights. Who has suggestions on good computers for a SWB w/ two 26 in. wheels (Panoram? Astrale?)and mounting of said computer? Those of you who have mounted lights - could you suggest where you have had the best luck mounting them. Until I can afford HID lighting, I will mount my twin halogens from Turbocat -

    Thanks for you time - consideration and suggestions

    I have the Panoram Wireless computer and it's awesome, real easy to install and easy to view. I have a light but don't use it much. It's a very bright light that has a battery pack to re-charge, if you need more info on the light, just e-mail me. I have seen this cool grip extension that you attach to your handle bar. Basically, it adds more space to your bar for more goodies. It rises above the bar. Check http://www.rei-outlet.com for it, I think it's on sale for like $7.00 or so.

    I have a generic cycle computer that I bought for about $40 Canadian at a Canadian Tire store. It provides trip distance, total odometer, average speed (in metric and non-metric), time and has automatic shutoff. I place it on the stem on my ASS Challenge Distance (also with dual 26" tires) and it works fine for me.

    I've tried the wireless and it lasted for about 1 1/2 years before the sensor friged up, the computer works but without a sensor it's useless and I can't buy them seperately.

    As for the lights I have a number of them; (1) I have a Lumotec Oval 12 volt halogen front light and a Lumotec DToplight rear light run off a generator on rear wheel. (see url; http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/Schmidt-Lumotec.asp
    (2) another light I have is a Nite Hawk Helmet Light (6 Watts)
    (3) Planet Bike battery light (dual wattage 6-10Watt)
    With all my lights on I look like an Alien space craft.
    I've even thought about getting Hokey Spokes (see url; http://www.hokeyspokes.com/what_are_hokey_spokes.html
    but this may be over doing it.
