I bought an old Bob Jackson touring bike (7 speed Campy) last fall as a 'fun' bike for casual riding and started riding it for short trips, etc as is with no computer, just gears and a water bottle cage. Quickly I found I really enjoyed riding this bike to the point that it is now about the only thing I ride anymore. I have weaned myself from the computer and tracking miles, speed and cadence and now simply go out with no plan and just ride like I feel, no distance plan, speed goal or cadence targets. Wow. I found that after riding with a computer for so many years that computer-less is much more enjoyable and I just ride to enjoy. I am curious, has anyone else thrown out the computer?
