I *heart* my Cyclocomputer

I'm finding that one of my favorite things about cycling is sitting at the computer after cleaning up from a ride and entering my cyclocomputer stats into my training log.
I really enjoy seeing what I did for the day.

Does anyone else get that little glow of joy when playing with their cyclocomputer... or am I just sick, twisted, and wrong?

I actually only spend about 4 seconds entering the data (yay IR connections) but then spend WAY too long looking it over and analyzing everything. Tons o' fun, though.

Xythen - I do the same thing. So, either you're not sick, twisted and wrong - or I'm just as sick, twisted and wrong as you are! Either way, it does give me a nice feeling of accomplishment seeing my HR change as my fitness improves, how many miles I've ridden and at what pace, etc.

You're not alone!

Yep I do the same thing When I started biking about 2yrs ago I had a cheap bike and a cheap bike pc but I would enter the data everyday (until the bike pc broke). Santa came early this year (about 12 days ago) and brought me a new bike pc (to put on my new bike). OMG it was sooooo much fun to look at the logs from almost 2 years ago when I was 60lbs heavier riding a HEAVY wally bike. It was really really cool to see the ride times, average speed and distance from 2years ago as compared to now. I never really noticed how much all 3 stats had improved until now

I'm not twisted, I just see the world a little crooked
