question on ciclo computerssmcfall
Feb 21, 2003 9:42 AM
i am thinking on getting either the 209 or the 212...has anyone have a ciclo computer? and how does it hold up to wet conditions? how is the batterie life?
do these only record kilimeters or can you switch it to miles? i am letting loose my avocet fix...i loved avocets, but the last one (a 35) didnt hold up to getting rained on
and never did work right afterwords...any more suggetions or answers would be a plus.

thanks

I have a HAC-4 setup on both my bikes.. one computer.. two mounts.. I ride one bike bike in Oregon rain and don't have any problems and even the alimeter/temperature readings stay strong in wet weather.

I bought the 414 mid-summer for my mtb & liked it so much I bought the 414M 2 months later for my road bike. For me, this was the first computer that stood out from the rest. (I've tried almost every computer, including the Campy Brain.) The features are very useful; altimeter, power meter, temperature, plus the standard functions. The 414 is wireless, which is great for mountainbiking. The computer seems to be very reliable in all weather conditions. However, I did find a problem with one of my sensors in the computer mount: For some reason it seems to have recessed a little & the computer doesn't make good contact. Also, the software for the 414M needs some updating. It is a little difficult to use & I havn't found a way to 'overlay' different rides (I think it would be cool to compare laps of a race.) As for measuring in the English system; I havn't tried. But this feature is on nearly every computer.
I'm using the cordless model w/altimeter....johnrg

and it's been flawless for a year. Last weeks ride through pouring rain had no effect. I highly recommend their products.
