BBB DashBoard BCP-05 cycle computer - in brief review£13.95

Simple but effective wired setup

BikeRadar score4/5

BBB’s simple wired seven-fuction computer is all you really need to keep track of your ride, at a bargain price.

The wired fork sensor needs a bit more time to get the wires wrapped safely round the brake hose or fork leg, which isn't necessary with a wireless setup, but at least connection is guaranteed.

The O-ring head mount can be used on bars or unscrewed and turned around for use on short stems. The sensor is slotted to work with flat or round spokes too, so you’re getting a proper universal fit.

The two-line display makes it easy to see the seven data options and the single-button scrolling is easy even with winter gloves. The casing is waterproof too – a definite bonus in the UK.

There’s a 10-function version (DashBoard BCP-06) for £16.95 or a wireless 10-function version for £31.95 (DashBoard BCP-15W).

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
