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

Cycling Computer

I sold my old Cats Eye computer with my Allez a few months back, and now that I got my new Roubaix I'll need a nice computer to stare at while riding.

Any recommendations, not looking to spend over $100 unless it does something amazing.

I got the Speceialized SpeedZone Elite w/Barometric Altimeter. It's nice, a little bit smaller than the older SpeedZones. Cost was around $90 I think.

Watch eBay for an Edge 305. I got mine with HR and cadence for $125 to my door. I bet lots will start showing up now that the Edge 500 is starting to become more available.

Strada Wireless (didn't have the cash to buy the cadence) has been GREAT for me....i.e. no line interference, no interference from other cyclocomps .etc

cateye V2c https://www.cateye.com/en/product_detail/461, all the bells and whistles minus gps for under $200.

But the strada wireless and double wireless are good as well.

The Trek Incite series has worked well for me, but you probably don't want to crossbrand (major style points hit there).

I'll second this.... great computer. Affordable. Simple. Everything you need.

However, I recently got a CatEye V3.... wireless speed, cadence and HR. A little more complex to use then the Blackburn though.

I had Strada Wireless. Great but no cadence. Swapped it for a Strada Double Wireless. Works flawlessly so far.
