I'm lazy and I'm tired of manually logging my miles on an excel spreadsheet. I googles around and found this:
I wasn't looking for the GPS logging capability but for the price sounds like a good extra.
Anybody knows about something like this? with or without the GPS? Under 100 bucks (I'm lazy AND cheap)?

I'm not sure I've seen one under 100, but I haven't looked too hard.
There should be some units under $200 though.
A lot of them are infrared instead of USB.
I use a polar CS600 which is over the price limit, but they have some others, as well as Suunto and a few others.
I have also been looking for a bike computer that allows you to download your data. I have been searched google and this forum, but I can't get anywhere since words like download and computer bring up a lot of other sites instead. What I'd like to get is something basic like the Nike+Ipod that I have for running. I only need the standard features (speed, distance, time, etc) and the ability to store and manipulate the data.
Do you mean like the Garmin Edge 305, 705 products?
The Garmin Edge actually looks pretty good for only $220. I'd still like to find something cheaper. I guess in my mind, I wouldn't think that it should cost so much more to include a memory chip in a standard bicycle computer.
