    Hi,

    Is there a wireless bike computer available that will take the reading off the back wheels and also give a cadence reading?

    I have seen a few computers but none of them mention about rear wheel mounting. xx(

    It needs to be wireless as I don't have any rear brake cable to mount a wire to as all my bikes cables are internally routed and I'd rather not wrap wire around the frame. :biggrin:

    Cheers

    Have a look at this one. My wife had one on her bike, but it went wrong after a year. So she swapped it for a Cateye wired one.

    Cheers for the link.
    I'm not after a heart rate monitor though. Just rear wheel reading and cadence.
    Its not looking good....I can't find a single one.

    I use a wired cateye (the previous model to the Strada) and it works fine. But it does demand that a wire travels from the chain stay under the BB and then up to the handlebar. I have the wired secured with some cable ties.

    That's why I've never gone cadence and stuff - too many wires or big receivers....

    If you find one, let us all know !!!!

    I have been pointed in the direction of the Cateye V3.
    It is wireless, will do cadence, speed (plus all the usual bits n bobs) and it has a heart rate monitor....not that Im after that....but it has it anyway.

    I just need to know if the V3 takes the speed reading off the back wheel....if it does then bingo....I'll knab one for me. :biggrin:
    The Cateye website isn't clear as to the location the speed reading is taken from.

    V3 sensor goes on the rear stay

    http://www.cateye.com/en/product_detail/460

    Look at the instruction manual at the bottom of that web page.

    The vetta range do an ascent version as well which I like.

    Edit: V3 is an HR monitor as well. The V2c is without HR

    Cheers Crackle. :biggrin:

    Just had a nose at the V3 instructions.
    TBH....for the extra £10 it's worth having the heart rate monitor.
    £90 form Cycle Store :biggrin:

    Roll on April payday.....I'll have to wait until then.
