    Bike Computer Help

    I need help to find a computer for my new touring bike.I'm looking for one that will tell me the temp altitute and keep track of total miles and susc.I know that they are out there but was only able to find one on the web that seems to fit and I want to see if there is anything else out there that will work. Thanks for your help.

    The Vetta V100A is wireless with temp, altim and all the usual comp functions. Works pretty well and shows cumulative ft climbed at end of the ride, or day. The only time the temp and altim get off a bit are when the weather is changing, but that is somewhat compensated by resetting at the beginning of each day. They are about $110.

    I have the Cateye A100. The altitude is barometric so you need to reset at known altitude points from a map, but it gives readings accurate within a couple of metres throughout the day unless you are riding through a tornado. The temperature reading is upset by radiant heat build up while riding in the sun. GPS machines dont require daily resetting, but never give altitude readings more accurate than to within 10 metres.
