I looked through the existing threads kinda quickly and didn't see anything like this, so I'm starting a new one.
I would like an odometer. I don't need a bike computer that tells me how many calories I've burned, or my cadence, or the current moon phase, or whatever - I just want to be able to tell how many miles I've ridden. And thus, I'd like to pay not more than about $20, less if possible. Are there analog odometers?
If I have to get a full-blown computer, what's a good, cheap, simple one?
Can I use a pedometer, strapped to one leg? Has anyone tried this?
If it helps, I'm a casual roadie on a mid-70's Schwinn. I don't usually bike commute because I only live about four blocks from work - I walk. I live in a small town, so I ride around town quite a bit, and occasionally take off in one direction for a few miles and back. I take the bike and trailer for groceries (maybe 1 mile RT) and laundry (a few blocks) once a week each.
