They all do pretty much the same job - I use a VDO which is excellent, but I'm sure no better than a Cateye or Sigma etc.

One thing to bear in mind if you're getting a cordless bike computer is that you can get cross talk if you use a heart rate monitor while you are on the bike.

Yeah cateye cordless are fine. I also bought a Timex speed and distance GPS watch last year and thought it would replace my bike computer and also be useful for running - after realising that it's bloody dangerous to keep looking at your watch whilst hitting great downhill speeds, and getting through huge amounts of batteries, I now use it only for running. But it's great for that purpose, lettig you check your pace and distance etc

I can recommend the VTO cordless but Cateye is just as good and only about $10 more. I like the look of the VTo, though - cateyes are ugly MFs!
