I just bought a Cateye Velo 8 and thought it was perfect for what I wanted it to do. A wired unit for telling me my average speed. But I was surprised when I went to install it that it wouldn't allow me to enter the mileage I already have on the bike. Even the cheap Schwinn I had from 10 years ago let me enter the mileage. What happens when the battery goes? The mileage starts from zero?
So my question is, do they all work like this now? Under features it doesn't say if you can put in your miles so how would you know? I would like an inexpensive wired unit that I can enter my existing miles and tell me my average speed. Any suggestions?
