    Kingston Halfords had some 8 function computers for 4.97 this morning
    (presumably the same ones as in Orpington only more expensive) and some
    12 function for 4.99. I have just bought two of the latter, fitted one
    and (accidently) left it out in the heavy shower that has just crossed
    SW London - which should test its water resistance.

    The quality of the computer handlebar clip seems to be better than that
    of my late Catseye Velo 8, which had a habit of flying out of the clip
    everytime you pressed the button to change modes.

    There are two sorts of shorts. One as you describe in a non-stretchy fabric
    - I only saw black ones. The other sort are lycra with a sewn in pad and I
    find them comfy, no rucking up problems. The lycra ones are in blue with
    yellow triangles set in, black with red, black with white and a pattern in
    red or blue on the white, but no plain colours in lycra.
