    Computer with temperature and backlight

    Hey everybody,

    I am somewhat surprised that there are such few computers out there with backlight and temperature. As a mountain biker I don't care much for metrics like cadence but it would be nice but I could sure use a backlight and temperature.

    Bontrager offers Trip 5W and (it's replacement?) Trip 200 but the Trek dealers in Canada have marked them up way too much. So much questions are:

    1) Are there any other computers that provide temperature and backlight?

    2) Are there any online ships where I can purchase any such computer from?

    Thanks.

    Thanks but that's more than 3 times the price of what I am looking for. I also don't need a GPS.

    Re: Computer with temperature and backlight

    This is an ok low-cost computer. You just have to remember to turn it on before riding.

    Got mine at Wal-Mart.
