which lap timer?

I'm thinking of getting a lap timer (although a sun dial would work for my laps). Which one would you guys recommend? I saw on the NESBA forums that you were having problems with some.

Lots of people have the XT, I think some folks were having problems with the older thick ones I'm not sure.

Thats the one I have as well.

www.xtracing.com is what most of us have. I was one of the dozen or so that had problems at Putnam w the 2nd generation models, but I sent mine back and all was good. We suspected a fauly beacon.

MycronLite is the other older brand and they have really caught up to XT in product funtionality.

I believe Nesba offers the best deal around for the XTs....around $175 for the receiver which is all you need.

I have a new XT and haven't had any problems with it. Sometimes it doesn't catch the signal from the tranmitter, but that's pretty rare. Most of the time it happens when someone is passing my slow self and blocks the signal.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

One more question. Do you need the 6' cable? It seems like a 20" cable would force you to mount it in the nose. I was thinking of putting it in the "trunk" for easy access.

Not many of us have the 6fter....yes it will allow you to mount it on the tail, but thhen its more of a permanent mount having to run the wires down your frame.

The 20" is nice because you can take it off and put it somewhere safe when you are not around.
