    Trainer computer help

    I'm looking for a computer that I can use on a trainer. It must be removeable so I can use it on different bikes. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Alternatively... I use a Polar when I'm on the road.... is there any simple way to make the sensor removable. Thanks

    I have a polar on my bike and use a trainer where the rear wheel is held by the quickclip to the trainer.

    The speed sensor can't be mounted on the rear wheel because it's too far from the computer. I tought it would bother me b ut I realized that I don't care about speed for training.

    This means that I get bpm and cadence. It's not particularly easy to move from one bike to another. If I had two bikes I would either get more sensors or just live with no speed and cadence on one of the bikes.

    Also you could use a GPS for speed. I intend to use my GPS this summer to validate the speed on my polar. I probably won't need the GPS after that unless I go for a really long ride and want to keep a log of my speed and path.
