What kind of computer do you have on your CV?

I have a Garmin on all my bikes, just switch from one to another! Unlike Cateye and others no need to reconfigure wheels and spacing between magnetic pickup's! Another great feature is going to Garmins website to log your miles and get lots of information about your latest ride to compare performance.

My Cinelli SC



My Gios Pro



My Gios Compact



My Kestrel 4000 Oops no Garmin, Oh I just put the Garmin in my rear jersey pocket and it works great!



Thanks, gioscinelli

Yeah, I really like the idea of small, GPS-based computers, and your little Garmin looks like just the ticket, but my budget hasn't allowed a GPS-based indulgence. Instead, I've been using the traditional wireless magnetic pick-up computers. I picked up a few VDO C1 computers during a Nashbar blowout, like $15 each or something like that. They're not the greatest, and I perpetually have pick-up glitches, but for the most part they work. I don't care for how they look on C&V bikes, but even the limited functionality they bring trumps the loss in aesthetics, IMO.

Garmin Edge 500. Love it.

I've considered upgrading to one of the map capable units (800) since I do a lot of dirt road exploring but so far my iphone has saved me whenever I've been lost (though one time I had no service and had to hike a mile to the top of a ridge to get enough service to load the map and my location...).

Anybody who thinks they are cost prohibitive, check out the Edge 200. Only $150 and has a lot of the key functions of the more expensive models.

I'm going to be loading a ride (D2R2) into my Garmin this weekend for the first time and will be using it to keep me on course...there are over 100 cues and almost zero signs or turn makers... I'm hoping the turn by turn feature works!

My Marinoni came with this, which I assume to be about par with the 1990 frameset (though I really don't know):



Pretty simple unit. Matchy.

I use a lot of Mity 8 cyclometers. They are cheap and I have a lot of bikes. But, I am leaning towards the Garmin. I have an older unit that I used hiking through Philmont.

I had a $3 computer from eBay for a while, until I learned to tell speed to within a couple of MPH based on gear and cadence. Then I removed it.

When I feel like it, I bring along an old iPhone that I bought from a friend. Runs a GPS cyclecomputer app just fine without phone service.

Also use an iPhone with Strava.

Works well with Cyclopath locally, the iPhone that is.

Oh yeah, I have a Cateye on one of my De Rosas as well.

I splurged and got a garmin 500 as well. I think it is absolutely the way to go if you want to track mileage with a stable of bikes. The initial cost is a little high, but the flexibility is great. You can use it on every bike without buying extra pickups or expensive mounts. The reliance on gps also keeps vintage bike for getting cluttered.

My modern bike has the mount on the stem like gioscinelli shows and I also have the wireless speed/cadence sensor on the chain stay for indoor training. On my vintage bikes I use the mount on the handlebars right next to the stem. I think it looks a little more natural on the handlebars when the bike has a thinner quill stem. I also rely 100% on gps for my vintage bikes. This keeps the price and clutter down as mentioned above.

I also enjoy downloading the data and evaluating the ride. When you upload the data to their website it will show you exactly where you rode and will display graphs for things like speed, cadence, elevation, temperature, and heart rate. It also let's you lay the graphs on top of each other to see corilations.

My 84 trek has an early 80s cateye [with cadence!]. For some reason, the front brake housing sits weird only when taking photos.



And bizarro 85 look ATB pedals.





My 90s Stowe has a 90s cateye [with cadence!]





Bonus shot of three cateye and 3 Ultegra/600 generations.

Right now I don't have anything. I use a Garmin Edge 205 on my other bikes, but I haven't put a mount on my Raleigh yet. I either put the Garmin in a pocket or I do a route that I know the mileage on (or will ride the same route the next day on a bike with the Garmin). I'm a info junky with bike computers, but I hate a bike that looks like it has too much going on. I love a very clean look. Less is more sometimes.

I'm contemplating on finding a place hidden on the bike to put a GPS and still be able to pick up satellite. Wired computers are awesome for reliability, battery life, and the least desireable by thieves...but the cord is just an ugly look to me on most bikes.
