I have a cateye wireless. Very good computer. Much nicer than the cheap Specialized I have on my old bike.+4 on Cateye Strada. I have both wired and wireless. I prefer wired.
I'm with you on this one.Cateye Mity 8 or Cateye Enduro. Same computer but the Enduro has a heavier duty wire. They're wired. I don't like wireless computers.
Keeping in mind that you said "clean and neat install..."ok up front i'll admit i like everything clean and neat. If you go wired with cadence how do you run the wire to the crank area? Anyone have pictures of a clean/neat install?
My wife bought a Trek and added a DuoTrap which has to be one of the most elegant solutions to cadence and speed sensors. She tried the NODE 2 but really disliked it. For only a little more she got a Garmin 500 on sale and loves it. It works great with the DuoTrap.The following should really be a new thread, but as a newbie I'm not allowed to start one until I've done more postings:
I'm tempted by the Bontrager digital sensors that nest into the chainstays of particular bikes. However, they only work with computers using ANT+. The only computers I've located that use ANT+ are Bontrager's own, which have more functions than I want. Does anyone know of others?
Another member may be, but I'm not aware of any bike computers with that feature. Usually calorie counts are linked to heart rate, so HRM's tend to have the feature.As an almost new road biker (yeah...still waiting for it to get delivered to my doorstep lol) who's trying to lose weight (have another 25 I want to lose), I've been looking for a computer that also tells how many calories I've burned. Seems like none of the ones mentioned offer this feature, while the cheaper ones (Bell, etc) have them. Can anybody recommend a good wired computer that does cadence and calores burned?
Edit: I didn't mean to jack this thread, just thought that others reading this post could also be helped in the future, instead of starting a whole new thread for most of the same information which does nothing but clutter the search feature even more
