Ok guys I think im going to get myself a new computer soon. Probably next paycheck. I still cant decide on one. I know I want a wired one
I know everyone likes the wireless and whatnot but the re-occuring theme I have read with cheep wireless computers (cheep being one thats not ANT+) is that they are very susceptible to interference and i think that would just drive me up the wall. And having to replace the battery in the head and the sensor would be kinda frustrating too! and I like the price point of the wired units better. I know they have wires but I think I could probably make them into nice neat lines that disappear on the bike.
So Ive decided on a few units. First a friend and I were at a local bike shop and they had the bontrager trip 3. I liked all the features but I cant a great volume of reviews. I like the screen size. But im not real fond of how the unit secures itself to the bars but I have only read 1 review of the unit poping off with dramatic effects.
Another computer i liked was the cat eye enduro 8. This unit does not have cadence and from what I have read on this forum everyone seems to really endorse computers with cadence. But I do like the fact that its got one of the bigger screens as far as cateye goes and seems to be very durable (hence enduro)
Lastly the cateye strada cadence. Its from cateye and in my book is a plus. But the screen is pretty small. I have good vision with my glasses on. But Idk how it would be while actually on the bike trying to look and understand data. Also the strada cadence is available at my local bike shop. And thats always a pluss to support your lbs.
If anyone has any advice or experience, suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I have also been lookin at the planet bike protege but again it doesent have cadence and I hear that rain is a death sentence for the unit and thats a bit of a letdown.
