I have recently purchased an 07 Giant Alias, I have a couple q's regarding computers, lights and pedals.
I know a lot comes down to how much i want to spend, but being a student i don't have large amounts to spend but still want gear that won't crap itself when its needed most.
1) Is a wireless computer as reliable? what computers can you recommend below $120?
2) I won't be doing large amounts of night riding, but when i do it'll be in the bush. Are the high powered LED's the way to go? they seem light as well as bright, but they also allow long burn times. any reccommendations for under $80?
3) regarding pedals, i will be doing a fair lot of road/soft trail riding compared to the harder tracks, are the SPD pedals the way to go? they don't have universal cleats do they? you need to get the cleats that match the pedals then screw them into the shoe? is that the way it works?
Cheers in advance guys,
hope to see you out there,
