wired computer, Vetta RT77
I never had any luck with wireless cycle-computers (I had two Vetta V100 wireless units with cadence for 6 months which never worked well, first one was replaced and second one thown out in disgust). Reading this forum, I am not alone.
So my LBS is suggesting a *wired* Veta RT77 with cadence as a reliable unit.
I checked the reviews on this site but they are mostly poor but also quite dated, the last one ~13 months old and most are 2-3+ years old. Perhaps Vetta has improved over last 12months?
I am looking for opinions on this Vetta RT77 *wired* computer with *cadence*. Will be be reliable? Anyone using it? What are the good, bad, ugly points? Is there a better wired Vetta model? RT88?
If not then what is the most reliable *wired* computer with cadence that is under $100 ?
I can put up with wires but I can not tolerate computers that do not work reliably.
I would look at the Cateye Astrale. It gets a lot of good reviews and Cateye customer service is awesome. I have the Echowell F2 which I have had very good luck with. They aren't as popular as the Astrale but they are just as good. I am not sure about the customer service part of Echowell as I have never had to contact them.

No problems here
I used the 'Vetta RT-77' computer for years on my bike. Was one of the best I've ever had.
I recently changed to a 'Blackburn Delphi 3.0' wired computer with wired cadence, and it's also a great computer. No problems with it either. The 'Blackburn' has a large screen and four line format, and so far it's great. Looks really cool too.

agree with Ray Dockrey, Cateye... if you want with cadence and wireless, go Cateye Double Wireless (CC-CD300DW)
