Acton, MA (20 miles west of Boston) - GORGEOUS cycling territory!
2007 Specialized Roubaix Elite Triple - 1st ride = century 9/19/2010 * * 2007 GT Carbon Series 2, Ultegra - 7/2010 - 2,000 miles, (replaced 'cuz it was too small) * * 1975 Lotus Odyssey - resurrected & ridden 400 miles to "try out" cycling
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).
don't know if you can order from mec where you are or if you can get this from somewhere else but this one has a wire that runs down to the rear wheel and has both cadence and speed sensors. i've used it for several months until i got the garmin edge 500.
