Cordless bike computers - Are we there yet?(9 posts)

Cordless bike computers - Are we there yet?andydave
Mar 3, 2003 4:32 PM
Looking at going cordless on the bike computer. Any recommendations? Anyone got anything to say about the CatEye Cordless 3 (good or bad)? From the reviews, it looks like the earlier versions had some problems. Is the cordless technology advanced enuf, or should I stick with a wired computer for now?
Thanks

I have 4 Cateye2 cordless computers and have never had a single problem in the past 8 years. I assume that the cateye3 will be just as good.

CHEERS.

been using a Specialized Wireless Pro on my MTB. Love it - all the usual, plus altitude, alt. gained, current temp. and a backlight! Wired cadence mount incl.

I have two of the cateye 3 computers. Both work great.The battery / sensor broke off my first one during a ride. It's hard to say what caused it to break. Cateye sent me a new one for a good price.

8 bikes, 8 cordless computers.

2 Cateye, 2 Specialized, 1 VDO, 3 Sigma Targas.

They all work fine, none has ever missed a beat. The Sigmas are very reasonably priced compared to the others and I like their simplicity. Downside - big receiver unit. Upside - $34 at Excel.

I use the CatEye cordless as well. Not a whole lot of "advanced" features but does what I want. Only time I've had a problem was after my 13 month old played with the magnet while the bike was sitting in a floor stand. A few minutes to reposition the magnet and all was good. If someone makes a computer, or anything, that can resist an inquisitive infant they will be well on their way to fame and riches.

I have a Sports Intruments Si90 wireless. I've never had any problems with it for the past year+.

I've used a Performance Axiom Wireless computer for about 3 years with no problems. I liked it so much, I bought another one to put on my backup bike, to replace the Shimano Flite Deck I had been using. Has all the functions I need and a large easy to ready display, without all the wires hanging all over the place. Cost about $30 on sale.
