Why cold votes? This is far cheaper then anywhere else..

It may be the best buy for that particular one, but as cycle computers go, they're all much of a muchness and are available much cheaper than that one. Unless I'm missing something... mine is a cheapy from Argos and does everything the one listed above does. I've not actually voted on this one btw.

is £55.52 from amazon amazon.co.uk/Cat…8-1
...so seems a good deal to me

Or consider the Etc mach-2 for £9.79 here

also cheap in Tesco ... but no direct link to the cheapest model

I agree that the computer on offer is wireless, but it only takes 5 minutes or so to fit a wired version.

Personally I wouldn't buy another wired cycle computer. The wireless ones are much neater, and not wishing to state the obvious, there are no wires to break!

I have literally just completed the Midlands Monster using this cycle computer, 101 miles of wind, hills and rain! Thought I would post this before I collapse on the settee.

The computer is easy to use and this is a very good price.

I expect lots of 'non branded' computers also do the job very well too, So it is down to personal choice. Voted hot for the price.

I just googled 'Midlands Monster'. It says 103 miles. Congrats on your achievement, but if your cycle computer reads 101 miles then it's not much of a recommendation.

They got it wrong on their website. My certificate says 101 miles.

My Cat Eye and my Garmin Forerunner 305 tally within 0.12 mile over 101 miles.

But of course any cycle computer is only as accurate as the wheel circumference you input to it!

Ah. I thought they'd probably got it wrong. Seriously though, well done. 100 miles! I've only managed just under 40. Legs could have done more, it was the 'gentlemans area' and *ss that were problematic. I'm hoping my new Brooks saddle will improve comfort, and thus, distance.

Getting back to the deal. It seems a very good price. Voted Hot.

hot, great price

Great price.
I've just bought a Knog N.E.R.D. wireless computer from ebay for about £27 and would whole heartedly recommend it, big chunky rubber look with brilliant, clear graphics and a nice rolling display.

I did the MacRide Stratford-upon-Avon ride last year that was supposed to be 100k (62 miles) ended up being 70 miles as they'd measured the route wrong. Great day out, though the 12% 'Col du Bakers' was a bit of a 'surprise' after 45 miles. Recommend anyone to have a go at charity rides, they always have different routes for different abilities, it's a great opportunity to raise money and the camaraderie on course is great.

Hey. Thanks for that designaw. Think I'll give it a go.
