    I'd maybe avoid the supercheap wireless, as they seem prone to fall over and die quite often, cheap wired versions are much more reliable.

    Halfords do a range of the basics for under £10 - my first £5 computer worked fine for 5k miles. Doubtless the aldi version will do the same. For the cost of a couple of pints its not worth thinking about.

    I use a Cateye wireless on my MTB and a Cateye wired on my road bike.

    The reason for wireless on the MTB is that you can snag the wire on the scenery!

    Less chance on a road bike, so i saved some money and went for wired

    Cateye Mity 8 is an excellent little unit. Hasn't been phased by the recent rain either.
    That said, I like the new Cateye Strada, very neat unit with good stem mounting option as well. Both for under £30 :wink:

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!
  • I find Cateye generally good.Im using a Cateye Enduro 2 which is quite reliable.
