A light for a bike computer??(3 posts)

A light for a bike computer??Rich_Racer

I realise some bike computers come with back lights - mine doesn't. Is there something, perhaps a bit like that clip-on device you can get for gameboys, for attaching to a bike computer to provide some light?

I see to be doing an increasing amount of night riding.

I was thinking about this when I was out a couple of nights ago and I suddenly remebered the device I made when I was about 10 out a battery, a torch, and some tin foil, to light my computer back then. Maybe I'll revert back to that!
Yep, ColoradoCyclist has one, Sigma Sport Computer Lightjs5280

It's in their catalog, but don't see it on their website. Price= $7.99. Didn't see it anywhere else off hand. . .

I just bought a tiny camping headlight from REI that can be attached to the helmet very easily.

For Double centuries I needed a light to see the milage and the map so this should do it. I still have to figure out the duration of the battery. In the package it says 70 hours, in the web page 1-2 hours. Now, thats a lot of difference.
