General Cycling Discussion - I *heart* my Cyclocomputer
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm finding that one of my favorite things about cycling is sitting at the computer after cleaning up from a ride and entering my cyclocomputer stats into my training log.
I really enjoy seeing what I did for the day.
Does anyone else get that little glow of joy when playing with their cyclocomputer... or am I just sick, twisted, and wrong? ;)

You may be sick, twisted, and wrong; welcome to the crowd!

I actually only spend about 4 seconds entering the data (yay IR connections) but then spend WAY too long looking it over and analyzing everything. Tons o' fun, though.
Xythen - I do the same thing. So, either you're not sick, twisted and wrong - or I'm just as sick, twisted and wrong as you are! Either way, it does give me a nice feeling of accomplishment seeing my HR change as my fitness improves, how many miles I've ridden and at what pace, etc.
You're not alone! ;)

Yep I do the same thing :) When I started biking about 2yrs ago I had a cheap bike and a cheap bike pc but I would enter the data everyday (until the bike pc broke). Santa came early this year (about 12 days ago) and brought me a new bike pc (to put on my new bike). OMG it was sooooo much fun to look at the logs from almost 2 years ago when I was 60lbs heavier riding a HEAVY wally bike. It was really really cool to see the ride times, average speed and distance from 2years ago as compared to now. I never really noticed how much all 3 stats had improved until now :)
I'm not twisted, I just see the world a little crooked :)
