/ Recommend me a cycle computer
Can someone recommend a cycle computer for under £50? Would need the usual things like speed (av, max), distance, trip etc.
Is it worth measuring cadence or is this a stat too far?
I was thinking along the lines of this - http://www.wiggle.co.uk/cateye-strada-cadence-cycle-computer/
Get a cheap one from Aldi.
Because it works just as well as a £20 - £30 one for about £3.99 and all wired computers break.
I now have got an Edge 800 that I transfer between all my bikes, now that is worth paying for but its over your £50 budget.
I found getting a pair of glasses solved that problem :-)
Worth paying a bit extra for cadence.
I've got a Cateye Cadence on my good bike, but have a cheap Tesco one on my hack that cost about £17.
If truth be told I prefer the display of the Tesco one - particularly its ability to scroll automatically through average speed, cadence, distance and time ridden displays - which is very handy when you're riding a time trial -- you don't have to keep pressing a button when you want to see a different stat.
Get something that will work with Strava. It gets rather addictive.
I just use my iPhone
I've used a Cateye one but found that in winter it gets interfered with by my LED light and just stops receiving. I'm not sure if this is unique to Cateye.
was it wireless?
Yes wirelss computer and an L&M Vega light. It could be just an unfortunate combination but I have seen it mentioned in cycling forums.
I'll go for a wired computer next time.
Or save up for the Garmin Edge 800 - fantastic.
