Been avoiding using one since i got over a knee injury, however the time seems right. Any recommendations for a cheap computer (wireless) that simply measures mph/kph, distnace an dperhaps cadence?

    adding cadence pretty much doubles the price as you need another sensor, transmitter and receiver. wireless also adds a lot of price.

    I've got a £10 wired one from halfords that does speed, average, max, distance, time etc but the button is a bit rubbish and sometimes doesn't work. So my road bike has a £20 cateye one which basically does the same but the button clicks when you press it and works everytime. The wireless equivalent was £40, wireless with cadence was 80. Possibly cheaper on line but a bit much for me in any case!

    i guess cateye in a shop is probably the most expensive route...
