    Has anyone out there used the optional wireless pickup for their Sigma Targa Cyclometer? I had the wire ripped out by a large branch, and thought about going wireless. Would the bikes electrics interfer with the signal produced by the Sigma?

    actually a really cheasy bicycle company just relese one "VERY COOL LOOKING ONE":and very nice too. uses 3 diferent screesns so the numbers are very big (easier to see).i see them as a part (option) on the baja desings kit for the XR 650 r ,they go for about $80 much cheaper than the one on my ktm adventure THECOMPANY NAME iIT,S TOPEK they are made somewere in asia .actually the sigmas are not that bad and you can :bullet proof the wire by making a serius casing of flexible pipe,string rap (thermal stuff) the wire needs to by elongated anyway so CUT IT AND fix it

    I've had great success with the Sigma line, but have never tried the wireless version. I've had the BC700, BC800, BC1200 and BC1400 and they have all been great and utterly trouble free.

    The other bike computer that looks really promising (and the one on which the TrailTech is based) is the Topeak Panoram. One of the cool things about this unit is that you can buy it with an extra long cable (don't know how long exactly). Nice idea for those who don't feel comfortable doing the soldering and heat shrinkable tubing that lengthening a regular cable entails.

    The Sigma units are supposed to be accurate to 180 mph, but you'll never find out on a GS unless you can get your hands on some of those JATO rockets...
