Wireless Computers?JetSpeed

Can anyone give me some good advice about buying a new wireless computer for my roadbike? All I really need is basic functions and want to spend around $75?

Thanks!!

Performance has an Axiom that has all the basics. I don't see the wireless version on their website, but you might try calling customer service. I also have an Ascent 10FC wireless that's very good.

I've had good luck with Specialized wireless computers.

I currently have a Cateye Cordless 7 on my Zurich, and have had pretty good luck with it. Don't store your bike close to your broadband connection (if you have one) cause the computer will start wiggin out.

I use Cateye 2, Cateye 7, Specialized Speedzone, VDO and Sigma Targa WL computers. The Cateye 7 is my favorite and you can find them on eBay for $37. Mailorder is about $54 and who knows how much your LBS will gouge you for it. On eBay, buy it from Velodepot, I've purchased 2 from him - all his stuff is "buy t now" so you don't have to enter into a bidding war. He's a trustworthy, straightshooter. Delivers on time.
Good luck so far with my Vetta 100Ken K

Bought on Ebay from Velodepot as well. I got the version with wireless speed and wireless cadence. $85 plus $6 shipping. It's been working great so far but I've only had it for three weeks so the batteries on the remote transmitters are fresh. It will be interesting to see how often those need to be replaced over the long term.

- cateye cordless 2 was no problem and not even disturbed when close to the huge antennas on top of Mt Wilson, when all other computers were going crazy.

- don't have problems with the Vetta (current one) so far - bought 99$-20% from Performance. But it requires reading the manual, not so easy to use...
