    It would seem to me that the HAC4 is a better value -- and the TR-100 is not out yet and doesn't seem to have an altimeter - but it looks cool.

    I really want a new computer for a new Project One I'm picking up in Austin for the Ride for the Roses. The MAIN features I need are;

    - Rear wheel odometer (trainer).
    - Heart Rate Monitor
    - Cadence optional
    - Altimeter

    What do you guys think?

    I'm not sure when the TR-100 is coming out as cateye has been talking about that for about a year now. If you are going to buy a top of the line computer, look at the Garmin Edge 305.

    Definately larger than average -
    Size: 1.75"W x 3.7"H x .9"D

    Never used the HAC4 personally but I've heard good things about it.

    Hi,
    it's cheaper and makes more sense to get an HRM and a computer. I'd get a midrange HRM that doesn't have too many features.If you aren't working with a coach, you don't need more.
    If you are working with a coach, get what he likes.

    I do like the altimeter feature on the computer, but haven't liked ones that used barometric pressure to guess altitude changes.
