Wired computer w/ speed pickup on rear wheel <> Also, heart monitor with long strap?
Take pity on my lame questions. I am so tired of all this "shopping" stuff. I want to find a computer without having to read through dozens of descriptions and reviews.
- Is there a computer that lets me effectively run just one wire to the rear to the cadence and speed pickups?
- My reading on Amazon reviews indicates that Timex HRM's good good grades but the straps are short (I'm 6'2" 240) and that Poloar quality is down. Any suggestions?
I started riding two weeks ago - 29 miles and 61 miles, today I started week 3 with 38 miles. In the last three weeks I've researched bikes (awaiting delivery), cycling clothing (wearing bibs now), pedals and shoes (borrowed some Monday, ordered stuff today). In addition to five test rides on new bikes I've been riding my 35 year-old Lotus and bringing it back to life (new tires, new used handlebar, new used saddle).
