Hi Guys,

I am looking to get a new GPS/Bike computer. I have recently got a turbo trainer so i need a computer with a rear wheel speed gauge. I would also like it to have a cadence meter too and possibly a HR monitor, could anyone give me some advice?

Thanks

    A cheeky reply would be, use the search function.

    I have Garmin edge 800, very happy with it, does all you require.

    Welcome to the forum, the search facility will help you but a Garmin Edge 500 with HRM+Cadence bundle will be all you need. Around £160 for the lot.

    Hi,

    I thought I'd jump in here rather than start another thread - I've always found it a little odd that there's a speed sensor with a GPS-enabled device. Is this generally intended for use with fixed trainers or is it required for accurate measurements on-bike?

    On another note, what's the opinion on the Forerunner910XT and 310XT? Anybody using these? I'm thinking of switching to Garmin - previously used Polar - partly because the software seems a little "better" and web based but I wouldn't mind something I can use running too.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    It's for use with stationary bikes and if you want greater accuracy with moving bikes.
