Best Bicycle Computer?

Ewww on the bleed over on the Station Joe. More then like it is causing a 2nd or 3rd harmonic of the actual operating frequency. Many small gadgets like bike computers do not have the proper shielding to protect themselves from this kind of interference. The tape should hold up ok as long it is wrapped good and tight. There are ways to route the wire, I use zip ties and route it along the handle bars close to the headset then down along the forks. Being the wire is small it is hardly noticeable. In a pinch colored electrical tape Wink .

P.S. I just tried the link you supplied and it doesn't work (atleast for me).
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

I just use a Schwinn 2 function unit the wife got me at Wally World and a small LED hat light I put on my bike helmet. Been using it for 2 years now with no problems. (Yes I am CHEAP and I know it)

P.S. I know I am a little late chiming in here, but what the hay.
Have fun and just enjoy the ride

Cateye Strada Cadence on the Defy, Sigma BC 509 on the Cypress. I have the cadence computer for use with the trainer since it is driven off the rear wheel and not the front. Only problem with the Cateye is that it sometimes get a little hard to read in dim light as the numbers are smaller than those on the Sigma. I guess part of it comes with old age.
