good cyclocomputer with cadence

Been using a Cateye Strada a friend gave me for a while now, but it doesn't have cadence. Was wondering what wireless computers y'all were using that did give cadence. Thanks for any insight.

I have a wired cateye with cadence... next time I buy a computer I'm going wireless, so just find the cateye with wireless that does what you want and go. Wires are silly.

I just got a wireless Bontrager and like it a lot. Mine doesn't have cadence, but I know they have a model that does. Prices are fairly reasonable.

I run a lot as well as bike so I bought a Garmin 310XT. It simply unclips from my wristband and onto my bike mount when I'm doing a biathlon or duathlon. It has an HRM and a built in GPS and I enjoy downloading and looking at the data and maps of where I have run/biked. I have the cadence sensor on my bike so it displays actual, max and avg cadence too. It will also display power if I buy an Ant+ compatible power meter.

I like the blackburn wired computer with cadence - I don't like the wireless ones, and this worked very well. Took if off though once I got a good idea of my cadence, I prefer riding without!

I'm running a garmin FR60 system If I did it again I'd go with a Mapping/GPS Garmin. Pricy but I'd be more willing to just take off and ride without planning the trip out ahead of time.

I've got the wired version of the Cateye Strada w/ cadence and it has been great. Very small but I can still read it. I especially like that it mounts to the stem and the pick-ups are both on the chain stay so the wires run down the down tube and aren't too annoying. I'd like to go for the wireless version but can't justify it since the wired one works so well.
