VDO MC1.0soccerdude said:I've been looking for a wireless bike computer with a temperature reading but have only found three:
Sigma Sport BC 2006
Planet Bike Protege 9.0
The Echowell A1 would be my computer of choice but it's not sold in the US anymore and I cannot find a store that will ship here. The other two have had bad reviews saying that the transmitter doesn't work well with mountain bikes. They do however work well with road bikes. Something to do with the distance between fork and handlebar.
Does anyone know of a good computer with temperature setting that will mount to either a 31.8 diameter handlebar or maybe a stem?
I too recommend the VDO MC 1.0, it's exceptionally easy to read and use, plus it survived an accidental trip through my washing machine and dryer.toonartist said:VDO MC1.0
This has temperature, altitude gained, degree climbed as well as the usual trips distance and speed etc. Just got this for christmas but worked perfectly in the freezing temperatures the other day! About £75 for the wired version.
oh, and it mounts onto a 31.8 OS handlebar
Having used both, the VDO is certainly faster in response to temperature change. They are both accurate if kept out of direct sunlight. But honestly, don't worry so much about it. Ride your bike instead.soccerdude said:I agree that I'm not going to find a super accurate temperature gauge unless I buy a Stemcaptain but the VDO gauge is much better than the Edge 500.
