Buddy, Chris L, Snowplug, and Joe are bicyclists who understand the reason for the hardware.
You said it fellows. The cyclocomputer's main function is cadence. Without some reference to cadance, how is Herb supposed to know if he is going fast or even if he is getting tired? IN FACT, without a cyclocomputer Herb could mistakenly kill himself by not knowing if his legs were spinning out of control. God in heaven, what a way to go. That would be a loss to our society of cyclists.
Still, Herb didn't say it, but we can assume he doesn't have the Jin to buy a new cyclocomputer. Well, I am here to save you with a time-proven yet cost effective audio cadence amplifier.
I actually used this method several years ago and can tell you that it works.
Get yourself a playing card or some abandoned high quality collector card (Pokemon cards work great).
Fasten the card to your back stay with a reliable wooden clothes pin. It is important to situate the card such that 4/16 of the length of the card is sticking into the spokes.
You will be truly amazed at the effectiveness of this cellulose harp. The faster your cadence, the faster you go. The faster you go, the louder the cadence amplifier sings. Your eyes are free to look at the road or even to look at girls. No more need to keep your eye on that cyclocomputer!
There is tale of a guy once who actually used TWO of these devices at the same time. Personally, I think that is over-kill and does not warrant the additional expense.
There you have it Herb; yet another practical solution to fit the biking man's needs brought to you by your friend Mike.
