Wired Computer with Cadence

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wired Computer with Cadence

Hi all,

I've got a few bikes with Cateye Astrale 8 cyclocomputers. These are long discontinued and some of the mounts are starting to fail. What's the best alternative to these in 2020? I'd like wired mounts (I'd rather spend the 5 minutes to install the wires than deal with 3 different batteries every year) and cadence. Any good alternatives available in 2021?

Check ebay. Complete wiring harnesses are available for Astrale 8.

Probably not.

I was told by multiple LBSs a few years ago that they could not get wired systems. Any wired system that any shop has is old stock.

No, it runs on wires.
Back on the bike since June 2020...
