    Bummer dude. I lost the display unit to my bike computer a few months ago. I failed to clip it in all the way and it fell out after about a half mile. I saw it fall and it bounced into some thick grass along the road, completely overgrown and thorny. I've gone back and looked several times and I think today was the last time I will. It's time to move on. I do feel bad for the sensor unit though since it lost its significant other.

    I lost mine as well somewhere under the 1-90 bridge. I first noticed it gone while riding S on LWBlvd, near some park. I had my bike flipped over to clean out some crap lodged in my crankset. Then I saw it was gone. I did the hunched-over peering in the grass gig to the amusement (pity) of onlookers, then retraced my ride. Which is not easy and is dangerous, no eyes on the road. My usual lode of cuss words was amped up and by the time I pushed my bike up through the thorny blackberry bushes, in the heat, I was cussing up a storm looking for my baby. But I found her!!
    I was not giving up. Thorn gouges on my legs will heal. I wanted my damn computer back.
