cycling computer suggestions

I am wanting to get one that measures cadence. What brand? Wireless or no? What other features should I look for? What does anyone suggest?

Should I get a heart monitor too? Get that as a separate piece or combined with the cycling computer?

Your thoughts please

There have been many discussions on this topic. Try doing a search using "computer" as a word in the title.

ok I went and bought the Cateye Astrale 8 and so far I am loving it. Simple to install and use. Gives me what I was looking for in cadence, avg speed, max speed and distance.



I also bought a separate heart rate monitor (the Polar F1) so I can use it for swimming and running if I choose. Currently I don't swim but you never know.



I have been running a little bit but I think I will pick that up a little more.

Cycling is difinately my favorite.


So now to search the web for heart rate training information guides etc
