Yet another computer question

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

Yet another computer question

I would like some recommendations. My preference would be to find a wired computer with cadence and HRM. Also would like stem mount and a fairly large display. The reason I am thinking wired is for reliability and I would like to be able to use it on a trainer.

A lot of people recommend a Polar unit. I use a Cateye Astrale 8 alongside a Polar F4 (guessing on the model?).

Garmin Edge. The 705 is hot right now, the older 305 can still be picked up for a pretty decent price.

Guess I should have given my budget. I have found a Cateye V3 for $139.00. I would like to find a wired computer with the same functions for the same price or less. Otherwise I will probably go with the V3.

Am I asking for something that isn't available or is everyone just sick of computer questions?

Why does it have to be wired? Take a look at the Cateye CC-HR200DW double wireless.
