Hi all

 

Looking at getting computer.

 

Want the basic ride logging capabilities, HR monitor and Cadence,

 

Being able to download to computer will be nice

 

Have been told to look at the Polar CS300, only thing I'm not keen on the wrist based/watch format.

 

Like the screens of the Cateye's

 

Need some advise.

oh btw, it's for MTB riding

Actually, I wouldn't even spend money on a dedicated cycle computer. I'd get a polar bluetooth HRM strap, and use my phone.

My phone is a iPhone, not about to carry it with me, or mount on bike, a tumble will end to expensive.

Is there a good online shop you guys can recommend, looking at the Polar CS300 and then Cateye CC-TR300TW atm.

Please correct me, it looks like the Cs300 is only the watch unit, everything like the speed sensor, the Cadence sensor and the HR sensor are all additional cost items.

My pnone is just as expensive as an Iphone, I back up my stuff, and have comprehensive insurance on it. Which insurance I'd have even if I didn't ride with it.

Hi,

 

Would like to keep cost below R2000.

Save just a wee bit more and get the Edge 500, its worth it!

That includes HR & Speed/Cadence bundle, no additional accessories required.

Hmmm damm that picture looks nice, and like the fact that the other bits are included.

 

You driving a hard bargain, problem for me I said my budget is R2K, but was really hoping to stop at R1500... hehehe damm there goes that idea.

 

Where can I get it, I know CycleLab can probably do it, but they got it listed as R3400.
