    anything wrong with using a "roadie" computer on a mtb?

    besides the fact that they aren't "built up"?

    I picked up a ciclosport 211 from chainlove ( http://www.backcountryoutlet.com/out...-Computer.html ). It's listed for "Road Use" and I was debating using it or just handing it off to one of my roadie friends.

    The only place I can mount the sensor is on the front fork where there is play with the shock of course... will this affect my readings?

    Should work fine.

    As long as the computer gives you the option of inputing your wheels diamater manually i don't see any reason it would not work. If its truely road only and has the wheel diamater as a fixed value in its memory then it would read that you are going about 10% faster then you actually are because road wheels are 29" and all true Mountain Bikes are 26:
