Comments about SIGMA SPORT BC1609 STS Cadence Bike Computer - Wireless - 2012 Closeout:
This cycling computer is by far the best I have ever owned, but the most expensive as well. It has a plethora of features and the fact that it is wireless in really nice. The biggest issue is that it the sensor pick-ups have a shapped foot or mounting bracket on the bottom of them. If you have a very modern bike with carbon forks or if your whole bike is aero shapped carbon then you might have a problem finding a good mounting location for the pick-ups that also still alows them to work. I had a little bit of an issue with this but lucked out with finding spots that worked and I also cinched them down well with zip-ties. So far only the front pick-up has moved around enough to interfeer with the the front wheel once, and that only happened from transporting the bike. The only other issue is that it starts counting and timing your ride as soon as it senses the wheel make a round or two and then when you are done it's hard to get it to stop (but maybe that's just me), so I now put the computer on right before I take off and then take it off as soon as I get back, which stops the counter.
