    2 Sigma BC2209 Computers on Tandem? or close proximity?

    Hi and thanks for your time.

    I'm considering buying 2 Sigma BC2209 Computers for a road Tandem,
    would you know if there would be crosstalk, or has engineering solved it?

    Cheers!

    They should work without interfering. I only have one for the stoker but these are digital transmitter using the ANT+ protocol. You can always send an email to Sigma USA and ask them. Someone actually replied to me when I asked about the range of the BC2209. :-)

    Another alternative, you can get 2 Garmin 305's on Ebay for the same money. You can pair both Garmins to the same cadence speed sensor, and each one to a different heart rate strap.

    That will give the functions of the Sigma plus GPS.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    True as long as one's willing to find a place to charge the battery every night. ;-)
