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.
