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

Polar HRM accesories

So I finally got the cs200 and it's a nice little computer. So nice in fact that I was thinking of moving it back and forth from my weekend and commuter bikes. The problems? 1) cadence - $40, Speed Sensor $40 2) bike mount, don't evne know where to get it.

Any suggestions?

Buy a $10 DB4L for your commuter bikes.

If you really dont need cadence, go with a CS100 (most of the same basic features except less "files".) on the commuter bike. Without the HRM strap, they can be had for $60.

that actually makes total sense, does the cs200 strap work with the CS 100 (or are they model specific)?

Plus I can add cadence later correct?


Also where can I get it for $60?

With all the negative publicity cs200 has been getting lately, I'm glad to hear you are having a good experience with yours.

I would email Polar support and see how much it would cost for them to send you an extra mounting kit and speed sensor. I would have to think a mount and sensor would be less expensive than a whole new computer. If that doesn’t work out, you can buy a cs100 without the chest strap here for $69. I believe all chest straps are compatible.
