    Hey I bought a bell 15 dollar job from walmart,

    wait before you laugh, its wire less small round gets speed average spped max, and distance including time of the run. Calories like who cares ,

    What more do you really need? and if it breaks its not much lost.

    oh a an odometer for total distance.

    the only concern I had is when the magnet moved away from the sensor

    Cat Eye Micro Wireless.

    I've got one on each of my bikes. They have lasted thru many falls, rain, mud and sweat. Shop around and get em for less than $50

    Hey, take a look at your calender, it's almost 2008. Get a GPS unit, and quit messing around with that pre-war technology. What's next, you gonna tell me you ride bike only one gear, and 26" wheels?
    I need a cool saying to put here.

    Enduro 8 from Cateye is hella-tough and can be found for real cheap on the internet. They are wired- but I have had two and crashed them both so hard they came off the bike. One flew about 20 feet away and was lost until I did my second loop and found it! Still worked until I sold the bike with it.

    OT- do you ride motard? I roadrace and do some motard when I can borrow a bike!

    Cat Eye Micro Wireless on SALE for like $30. Was just in one of the ad sections of Mountain Bike Action Mag, I think it was CBO, but i could be wrong, just check the Mag.
