    Lefty shock with computer

    I tired the search and didnt find any current threads... I did see a few posts noting that it is a bit tricky.

    I have a new F29 with a lefty. I need to buy a bike computer for the bike. Any suggestions as to one that works well and is full featured? I want wireless, current time, plus the standard distance, lap, speed stuff.

    Looking for something more the standard style and in the $50-$75 range... I already have a Garmin watch.

    There is a mount to use a regular speedo with a lefty. Just a plastic bracket, but I can't remember where I saw it. Google it

    Thanks for the heads up. I ordered the mount last night. Now I just need to pick a computer...

    I followed advice from another lefty owner and glued the magnet to the disk on my front wheel. Its low profile, which I like. The problem I am having is that the distance of the disk is further from the handlebar mounted computer, and it intermittently doesn't register. I tried replacing both the sensor and the computer battery with no difference.

    I am currently trying a Specialized computer. Is anyone doing something similar with success? Any recommendations for a basic computer with longer range?
