Consensus on the most reliable wireless speedo?(8 posts)

Consensus on the most reliable wireless speedo?Alex-in-Evanston
Jul 31, 2002 12:51 PM
I've got the Sigma BC-800 wireless on 3 bikes. In short, they suck. Frequent battery changes, misreads, blink on/off all the time.

Is there a cordless that doesn't require battery changes every month and just plain does what it claims?

Thanks,

Alex

I've used a Performance Axiom wireless computer now for two full years. In that time, I've had to replace the battery twice. It works flawlessly, is easy to operate, and has a large readable display. Although it doesn't have a cadence function, I actually prefer it to the fancy-schmanzy Flite Deck on my other bike. Performance has them on sale right now for about $30. Hard to beat at that price and if you don't like it, you can always return stuff at Performance.

Elite has worked great, without a battery change yet, for about 1 1/2 years. It has a cadence sensor (which IS wired), if you want that also.

It does everything I need, and seems to be fairly accurate with mileage.

Good luck picking.

Happy riding.

Vetta RT-88 works great. Battery lasts about 2000 miles. (nm)Quack

Been using this setup for almost 2 years and the sender battery lasts about 2000 miles before it starts to go away. Have never replaced the main battery in the computer.
