    Computer with ODO, MPH and Cadence

    I don't need GPS, as my phone already does that. I have a Polar HR monitor, so I don't need that either. I don't care about wire/wireless, but am on a budget. There are so many choices, and everything seems focused on GPS and HR, so I can't figure out a computer that would do what I am looking for.

    Can anyone offer a suggestion?

    I like the SIGMA1606L. It's wired and has cadence. It's also easy on the budget.

    Well, without cadence -- http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-SW654-.../dp/B000DZD3FQ
    ... works pretty good.

    With cadence -- http://www.amazon.com/E3-F11C-Cadenc.../dp/B0018A8BUW
    ... never used that one, but it's certainly inexpensive.

    Cateye Strada Cadence.
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    Cateye or Sigma.

    Just keep in mind that if you get a wireless bike computer, it may or may not get along with your HRM. But if you're on a budget, you're probably better off with a wired.

    Sigma BC1606L. Wired, cheap, easy to install (but a little futzy to set up). $29 at LL Bean or $40 at REI. Spare harnesses are only $8 and make changing between bikes a breeze.

    Does anyone have 1rst hand experience?

    I like cateye's fastening of the computer, I feel the the sigma could fall off the bike if I were to fall or have an accident?

    I do however like the fetures of the Rox8. So can someonoe please point out something that i need to know that are not on the manufacturers site?

    Does anyone have pictures of the sensors installed?

    I have this but the only things I have issues with is the installation being very, very messy. The wires are all over the place. And I think having a backlit LCD would be awesome as well.

    I have had no problems with Sigmas and I have a wired one on my mtb that I use off-road.
    Falling is learning...[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]...learn to not fall in a box.
    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?
