I am 56 years old, new here, and so far impressed with the site. Lots of nice people enjoying a common interest. I am in the market for my first cyclocomputer and overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices available. All I really want are the very basic functions like speed, distance, clock etc. My biking consists of mainly riding my cross bike on the mostly smooth crushed limestone trails SW of Chicago. My main requirements are: reliability, visibility and value.
Do you think some of you fine people could give me a few suggestions. One unit I read a lot about is the Cateye Mity 8. Seems to be a good bang for the buck unit which is what I am looking for basically.
I see a lot of you people recommending Nashbar as a cheap place to buy from but their prices seemed rather high to me compared to other sites. For instance they want $29.95 + S/H for a Mity 8 which is rather high compared to other online dealers.(sorry Nashbar) Any other good online suppliers as well?
All suggestions will be much appreciated.
