Bicycle computers take the cycling experience to the next level. The Sigma Sport Wireless BC1200 computer performs several functions, such as current distance travelled, ride time, average speed, maximum speed, current speed and overall distance travelled. The BC1200 works on two different bikes with a setting for "bike 1" and "bike 2" that keeps track of the statistics for each bike separately. Before you start using your computer, though, you need to set up basic functions, including time of day, and more important things, such as the tire size of your bike or bikes.
