Anyone use Mavic Wintech USB?

i was looking for a non GPS based cyclometer that'll let me download and chart out speed and cadence over distance. This seems to be the only one I can find (OK I didn't look too hard) It is not cheap (about $150 once you get both sensors which are sold separately) . Does anyone use it and if so how do you like it? If not, any other suggestions. again i don't want a GPS solution unless it'll do a wheel sensor also and don't want to spend more than $150. Must have an optional cadence sensor.

I guess a used Edge 500 could work?

Powertap CPU's can be used as cycling computers and have optional cadence sensors.

what do i have to buy if I have a wireless PTap already... a shark fin and a cadence sensor?

i guess that is not bad, and I know how to use the computer and software already...

or this

apparently I'd need 2 of these if I wanted to graph speed AND cadence, since it does either or, not both. I guess how the hell else would it do both.

Polar and Sigma both have models that will do what you want - haven't tried them, but do have plenty of customers who have with good results.
