My original attachment of computers (for a girlfriend, and later for me) was on
the back of the seat post. We used a model that stored max. speed, average
speed, distance, etc. so you could look at it after.
Later I built a racing unicycle with the computer in the front of the seat.
This one you can just barely look at while riding, depending on your size.
But sometimes the buttons get pushed while you’re riding, and I don’t want to
say by what.
>Anyone seen any Wireless cycle computers yet you could were as a watch? Just
When wireless computers first came out, I was recommended by a knowledgeable guy
at a bike shop not to risk it. He said the signals were very weak on the things,
and they weren’t yet reliable. On a unicycle, if you have the computer on your
person (even in your pocket), it will be farther from the transmitter than it
would on a bicycle, so I saved the money at that time. The reliability of
wireless computers has probably gotten much better since then.
What I want is a computer with an altimeter in it. First I want to find out how
accurate they are, and then I might consider one for my MUni…
