Confused at the relative merits of a $45 box that will give me mileage, and Garmin GPS boxes that cost 2-3 times as much as I paid for the bike. What features do I really need?
If you watch, you can get a Garmin Forerunner 305 for $120 or under. The 305 gives you full-on HR monitoring and ride tracking.
But Erthian is right (sorry dude, not gonna try and do the weird caps, lol). Pretty much any bike computer would do to start with. I use a Cateye Astrale ($35 at Performance Bikes right now), but a Cateye Mity for $26 is plenty fine too.
