I am Nachiket from Mumbai, one of the crazy place in the world. I am an avid cyclist. The cycle market in India is still under-penetrated. Also, foreign brands are very costly as Indian government levies import duties on it. This means, not only the foreign cycles, but even the accessories are levied import duties. Needless to say, foreign brands are very expensive in India.

One of my friend is arriving from Germany & I have told to bring some accessories for me. I have done internet search. But still thought to take your opinion.

My priority is to bye wired cycle computer with cadence. Please suggest me 2-3 value for money brands. I am not brand conscious. I need value for money products.

Also, are their solar powered head lights available which I would like to attach to my bike. I am on really shoestring budget. So please suggest accordingly. My maximum budget for cadence computer is 30 Euro & for solar powered headlight (if available) is another 40 Euros.

Hope to hear from you soon. My friends will be coming from Stuttgart.



PS:- I am buying the stuff for my own consumption. I will not be buying products in bulk to sell at profit in India.

For lights I plan to get a pair of theese:

But I haven't tried them out myself. Does anyone in this forum know if they are any good?

Well, I really like the idea. No dynamo, no batteries : )

Thank you Jennifer.

I have also found one cycle computer by Sigma. They have cadence as optional measure. The website is in Deutsch. Could you let me know if I incorporate the function of cadence, do I have to increase the costs?


Cadence = Anzeige der Trittfrequenz (I guess..!)

Hope to get reply from you soon.

Warm Regards,

Nachiket Marathe

on the website it says you need a sensor to measure the cadence (frequency of your pedaling). it costs 6.95 euros

the actual computer costs 23.85

then there is a bell for 4.99

There are three checkboxes where you can choose what to put in the shopping card, the whole bulk or just a selection.

Hope this reply is soon enough and answers your question!
