Cycle speedos

Does anyone run a cycle speedo in their seven?  I have a Sigma BC1600 that has stopped working and wonder if there is a more modern alternative out there.  I suppose I'm after a wired version unless the wireless ones are a lot better than ones from a few years ago.  Any suitable suggestions?

TIA
Nick

From the title, I initially thought you were looking for something to compete in a triathalon with:

Have a look a gps speedos for cars on eBay. There are lots of options that may be more suitable than a bike one.

I use a HOLUX GPS Sport 245 and find it brilliant. No wires or transducers as its GPS and very accurate.  A bit difficult to find in the UK now but the are available from overseas.

I use a GPS speedo that runs off a battery but I usually keep it plugged in the 12v socket.

I made a bracket that uses two holes in the dashboard that were there from the previous owner and the speedo just clips in:

Thanks for the links and suggestions.  The Sigma unit was good as it had a programable odometer so you could retain a total mileage if you changed the battery.  I'll have a look at the ones above

Hi Nick, I may have an unused Sigma unit but I can't check for a couple of days. If I have you are welcome to it unless you find a better option.
