    Wireless Cadence

    I'm looking for a wireless computer I can use on the road as well as the trainer, that does cadence and distance.

    Have been surfing for a while with no joy.

    Wireless Cadence

    There are lots of options. Get an ANT+ speed/cadence sensor (~$30-60) and add an ANT+ head unit. This could be just a dongle for an iPhone (look at wahoo for ideas) or all out with a garmin edge unit. Bontrager makes a few ANT+ head units that are somewhere in the middle in terms of price.


    Ideas:
    Basic Head unit:
    Bontrager: Node 1.1 (Model #09586)

    Basic sensor:
    Amazon.com: Garmin GSC 10 Speed/Cadence Bike Sensor: Garmin: GPS & Navigation

    Iphone Set up
    The dongle
    iPhone Cycling, iPhone Running, Low Energy ANT+ Wahoo Key by Wahoo Fitness
    + the Garmin dongle or you could get a Wahoo sensor
    Wahoo Fitness Wahoo Cycling Speed/Cadence Sensor (Wahoo Fitness WFSC01), Wahoo Fitness iPhone Running and iPhone Cycling Bluetooth Smart Products

    This combined price is a bit more than a wireless bike computer, but most wireless bike computers are not strong enough to transmit from the rear wheel. ANT+ will.



    I actually like the idea of the ANT+ dongle to an iphone so that you can access your data and have it automatically stored in a web-log. If you want to skip the dongle, there are bluetooth options that work too.
