    Garmin 705

    ANT+ wireless for powermeter. Cadence sensor mounts to left chainstay and transmits to unit wirelessly.

    Probably important for the OP to understand that the computer alone (such as Garmin 705) won't give him power, and that he still needs a device such as a PowerTap wheel.

    Good point Circlip. I forgot to mention that.
