Pick what you like/can afford. Even Walmart has some, although cheap.

None. No one NEEDS a computer on a bike. Some people want one; others do not want one.

Hello Craig, thanks so much. I'll check and pick one.

Hello dear, What I use is iPhone 4s. Any recommendation? Thanks in advance. I'm not familiar with this. Smile

If you use a mobile phone with an App it better work with the phone out of view or it will get snatched. You will also use a ot of batt power.
Wireless computers like the Cateye are fooled by the neww sensors for traffic lights, I have clocked 87mph! (Just check the "Max" display).
Garmin has one for about $130 I think, that uses GPS. The Edge 200. It will work in your pocket too.

I have an old Sigma BC800 on my motorcycle. Works great over 100mph and is accurate when set up

On my Bicycles I have two Cat eye units. I use wired systems.Batteries last several years. I like to know distances traveled so I can gauge my trip.

Nashbar or performance bike are good places to look.

No idea of which one is better. But I saw the right one in Kickstarter some days ago. It is a new product and is getting crowdfunding in Kickstarter.

You can search "InkCase Plus" in Kickstarter.com or check in the following link for more information: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/378232716/inkcase-plus-e-ink-screen-for-android-phone

It seems it is a cool product. I'm considering to have one for my mobilephone.
