|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.

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.

|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.|| |
