Which one would you chose?

i need a new speedo/cadence to use with my indoor rear wheel trainer, a NEW 2012 KURT KINETIC ROAD MACHINE FLUID BICYCLE TRAINER.

it's between a catseye strada cc- rd200 or a sigma 1609 (mpn 1698-cy7299 ).
both of these are rear wheel mounted. by the way the sigma 1609( mpn 1609) front mounted.
which one would you chose an why?

thank you inadvance for your opinions.

By the way: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Present tense: choose (in progress); rhymes with ooze
Past tense: chose (a done deal); rhymes with toes
In advance is two words.

Thank you.

I have a kinetic computer I hooked up once to try and use for the power meter function(T-725wl). Since I couldn't get the power meter to work consistently I have no use for the computer. I have a garmin I use for my ride data. The kinetic also has a heart rate monitor I never used. If you are interested in a kinetic shoot me an offer.

I have a couple of sigma's in the garage I also don't use. I can't remember, but they may be the bc1609. One is missing the wheel magnet. If I can find either of them you can have one for postage, again let me know.

No, it's a 506 front wheel mount and this is the one I lost the wheel magnet to. I also lost the complete unopened unit. At any rate not what you are looking for good luck.

i plan on getting the catseye strada cc- rd200 from e-bay for about $35.00 free s/h.
i have some e bucks to use so it won't that much i have to pay.

i just finished converting my catseye endura 8 to the rear wheel . so i can use it on my trainer.
when it bites the dust i'll install the strada.
thanks for your input.
