bike computers

Since Viv recommended the Polar S725x in my query about heart rate monitors I've been thinking about bike computers. $500 is a reasonable chunk of change, especially given my income over the past few and prospects for the short-term future, and my desire to tinker starts to make me think about what I could build for that, and...

...and then I realize, like on this morning's ride, that I also just need to become more disciplined. This morning I'd left my bike computer sitting on the desk next to my mouse where I'd had it to type in the stats after Sunday's ride.

Perhaps the real purpose of building something wireless and next-gen would just be that I could put a transceiver out in the driveway that'd be able to transfer the logs when I arrived home.

I have a handful of Cateye Astrale 8s for my various different rides, and they work fine for a basic "how fast am I going and what's my cadence", the latter being more important on the tandems than the singles.
