    New question here. All Mountain computer

    I knew that title would get you




    But seriously, with the fatter lowers [Lyrik], bigger rotors and [200mm] it is hard to find a computer magnet with enough power.

    Anyone using a compter that would work?

    No, because I spend most of my time in the air and am so skilled that I practically fly, so no computer magnet will work for me...

    Seriously, a computer? If I saw anyone using a computer with a bike with 160mm of travel and 8 inch rotors, I'll take them out before you can say all mountain.

    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    Dip the magnet in some Dew and let it dry until tacky. Should pick up on the sensor no problem at that point.

    I use a Garmin Forerunner 201 with the handlebar mount. Even records my distance whilst airborn.

    Those are pretty cool. GPS units are getting smaller and smaller; I could see them getting to the size of a bike computer within a few years.

    first off NICE picture for your avatar. and the thing I found when using a gps (just a hand held one) it only records the horizontal distance and speed. so if its really steep it will not be accurate. but that just might be the one I'm using.

    I'm using a Cateye cordless, on a Van36 with 8" rotor, with the sensor mounted on the non-brake side.
