Cyclometers....(6 posts)

Aug 10, 2001 6:53 AM
I just want a computer that will auto start/ stop (no matter how long the bike has been asleep)...keep overall distance, trip distance, fit an Ouzo fork leg...wireless would be a plus....any suggestions...I had others, but they did not have auto start....This is important because I am lame and usually forget to start the thing until miles have passed....

Checkout the Sports Instruments SI90wl. It has all of the features you are looking for.

I have the SI90HR & SI dosen't have a solution for installing a magnet on flat spoke on Mavice wheels. I went to lbs & got a Cateye magnetic. Also the bar mount on mine is not exactly the best. The unit has come off with little assistance on my part. Nice functions & features though.

Every computer I've ever had had auto start. Even the $15 ones. On most you have to dig through the manual to find out how to enable it. Some also have "mountain bike" modes that affect the way auto start detects a start.

To borrow a customer support acronym, RTFM! (RTFM = Read The F---ing Manual!) Of course, if they designed the thing properly, you wouldn't need a manual, but that's a different argument.

I use a cateye enduro. It does evrything you want and fits my ouzo pro fork. The sensor mount is bigger to fit MTBs. cost less $30
My Cat's Eye does that ...Humma Hah

... my $18 Target cheapie does not. The auto start/stop feature is common among the better brands.
