I'm looking for a good price on the Ciclosport 414 with PC link. Anyone know of a good place to buy these? How is the reliablity?

Thanks!

for about a month now. I got it from World Cycling Productions at a small discount (15 %) when I bought a new bike.

I have about 700 miles on the bike and the computer, with no problems. It is a very sturdy, but also complicated device, with more features than I have mastered. I got it mainly for the altitude, gradient and temperature functions. Those functions and the basic info -- time, speed and distance - are easy to use. I have yet to determine how to access accumulated miles easily.

I have no idea how the PC function works. Nor can I suggest a discounter. I checked around before ordering mine and found no discounts on the computer alone. In fact, I found a variety of prices on the basic unit -- from $134.95 up to $144.95. I ended up paying about $121.

Look381i,

Thank for the information. I've been debating getting the Ciclosport 414 or just going the simple/cheaper route and getting something without the altimiter and computer download functions. I have seen these computers at a European mailorder site for considerably less than the US sites (not sure if it would be a good idea to do this with a computer though). Anyway, thanks for your input.

I purchased the 414 w/o the PC link at www.xxcycle.com for $68 but the price has gone up since then. I had no problems with the site or the delivery to North America and would highly recommend the company. I'm very happy with the 414's performance but I'd actually prefer a wired version to save some bulk. I use a Deda oversize bar and the 414's mounting bracket only works on smaller diameter bars. This means that I have to use a 'tirathelon' style mounting stub that allows the 414 to be attached to the stem.

You might be able to get Performance to match an internet price and save the extra shipping cost from Europe.

Good luck
I had the same mounting problem with my Cinelli Solida carbonLook381i

oversized stem. I used a low tech solution. I just wired the two ends of the mounting bracket (where the bolt would normally go) together with copper wire and covered it with a small bit of electrical tape. The wire and the tape are on the underside of the bars, so it looks fine and and works fine.
