I gave my GF the Astrale, and she gave me the Strada Cadence! Isn't love wonderful? The Astrale is definitely better looking, but I do like how they button interface works on the Strada. Both are extremely easy to set up, for they both have the same mounting system. I'm a little annoyed with seemingly more cycling through the functions of the Strada vs the Astrale. I may be a bit old school, but the Astrale is more intuitive for me. The Astrale seems to have great track record. The Strada has bigger numbers, but doesn't seem that much bigger.
I really like my Strada, but you won't have any regrets getting the Astrale.
