    Anyone using Giant Neos Pro?

    Recently got bit by the cycling bug- now looking to get a cycling computer. I bought a giant defy advanced which has the space for RideSense in the chain stay, so I'm thinking that RideSense+ Neos pro would work well.
    Anyone using Neos pro computer who can give me some input?
    Thanks in advance!

    I use it! When I bought my bike, a
    Giant Escape RX, I saw it had the RideSense so I ordered the Neos Pro and I'm glad I did. I also bought a heart strap ...a Wahoo Tickr....its Bluetooth & Ant+, so it connects to my iPhone apps via BT and connects to the RS via the Ant technology.

    Looks fairly similar to the Bontrager Node computer I started with. It was a fine computer but only uses ANT+ sensors (pricey), and a maximum of 2 bikes. If you plan on having multiple bikes and don't want to buy additional sensors, a GPS computer with ANT+ support might be a better bet. When I got my Edge 500 (before switching to the 800) I tossed the wired computers from my older bikes into a box to never be used again. The two bikes I originally setup with ANT+ sensors pair with my Edge 800, and my other bikes use GPS only for speed.

    I actually preferred the screen on the 500 to the 800 as it was much easier to read regardless of where the sun was.
