    I have a cyclocomputer for my mtb but it doesn't handle the bumps and what nots very well. Does anyone have a brand and type they use that works well and won't pop off my shocks.

    cyclocomputer

    I got mine from Bike Nashbar, and it seems to be holding up really well.

    I have only used Specialized computers and haven't had any problems. I did upgrade to the Turbo Elite when I got my new bike last year, mainly because I wanted a wireless one. Before that I had the older Speed Zone computer. I haven't had any problems with the sensors moving/coming off or anything. Good luck.

    Did you install rubber pads under the tie wraps that hold the transmitter? It helps keeping the thing stable...

    I use a Catseye wireless w/HR. No problems. I make sure to tighten the sensor on the spoke occasionally. So far my HR monitor hasn't bounced off my bra!!!

    Thanks i will look into the rubber thingy's to secure it better. I thought maybe they made some for mountain bikes alone.

    Like anything if you beat the crap out of it it will break. I use a cateye too and after several crashes it is still going strong after 3 years.

    Cateye Fan

    I had a cateye mity 3 for ages on my old bike absolutely no probs. Recently brought a Cateye Wireless. Only thing is I found to get a reading I had to mount it higher on the forks than desired (it's got to be no more than 70mm from console to sensor) so it's not on the handlebars - seattube & rear end reading which is good cos records the k's on the trainer as well!

    So brands I would consider: any Cateye, Sigma & maybe VDO.

    But certainly see if you can secure your current one better.
