Computer with Reynolds Ouzo Pro(7 posts)

Any suggestions for a computer which works well with the somewhat oversize and oval legs of the Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork? I have a Cateye Mity 3 but neither of the universal mounting bands supplied are large enough to work. What are other people using?

I just put a V100 Vetta (US Postal colors, like the one Hincappie advertises for) on my Ouzo Pro. The mount worked great for me because it is not hard plastic and seemed to fit just right. For the other end i cut out a small piece of tire tube and ran the ties over that. Take a look at it, you might want to use it. I have a sigma on my other bike (not reynolds fork though). You might could take the bands to a good hardware store and find some bigger ones.

Sigma Sport uses an o-ring to hole the sensor onto the fork. It works great with the Ouzo Pro fork. They are also great computers by the way.

I have a Mity 3 as well, with a Kestrel EMS fork. I had the same exact problem in that the mounting bands cannot get around the fork. There is a simple solution. The Mity 3's "sensor wand" (or whatever it's called) can be separated from the housing that includes the screw to attach it to the mounting bands. If you look closely, you can (gently) pry off that housing from the sensor wand. What you're left with is just the sensor without the bulky housing. Then you can use the ties that came with the computer to mount the sensor and secure the wire up the length of the fork. What I did, and it works really well, is to wrap the sensor with some electrical tape to secure it to the fork. It's rock solid, picks up the signal perfectly, and blends in with the fork. Good luck.

Cateye does make a larger fork mounting kit. Go to http://www.cateye.com/support.htm and click on "small parts" for more information. I have a Slice carbon fork and my LBS is currently attempting to get the mounting kit directly from cateye.
Good luck!

Computers like VDO or Performance Axiom (exact same as VDO, just another name) have a sensor that mounts to the left rear chainstay, and a magnet that mounts to the rear wheel, so you don't have to worry about the fork at all.
