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

I went on shopping.com and did a search. Lowest price was Amazon at $179.95, but it's out of stock.

Thanks. My LBS has it for $179.99 plus tax. I was hoping it was a lot cheaper online like most things. Looks like its not so I'll run over and get it there. Thanks

I got mine from Nashbar. I like it a lot. It has all of the features I like, the transmission so far has not had any problems, and it has a memory that stores data from 14 rides. The speed sensor is on the rear wheel, so you can use it on a trainer if that's your thing.

I know it can store up to 14 rides but you can only view it on the bike screen correct? Not on a desktop computer?

Any problems with lost signals or messed up data?

What's up with bike computers having gigahertz? What's the advantage?

Frequency at which the wireless transmits. advantages can included improved transmission distance and less interference.
