    If you can, spend the $200 to get a Garmin 500. GPS based and you can move it to any bike you want without dealing with wheel sensors.

    That's it, it doesn't rely on front wheel revolutions to calculate the speed and distances, it uses GPS tracking. Just let it sync to the satellites and go! No wheel diameter to enter, no wires... They come with two mounts to share it on two bikes and you can buy some additional ones (I have a mount on 5 different bikes).

    DG is right.

    I have 10 bikes, and got sick of buying new Polar mounts/sensors so I opted for a Garmin 305/705. The new 500s are very slick if you don't care about having road/trail maps.

    Expensive, but worth it.
