    I'm looking to put a computer on my new Madone. The 2 big things I want are my cadence and wireless. I've been told to look at the Cateye CD300DW. Good product? Any other suggestions?

    Don't forget the Polar CS200CAD and some of the Ciclo Sport higher end computers all come wiht great features. Depends on what you want to spend in the end.

    I tried and hated the HAC 4. I just bought the Garmin Edge 305. It seems to be a fantastic wireless with a lot of features.

    I love my Polar S725 HRM/Bike Computer. I have used it for a year and it never fails. Too many features to mention and it's a nice looking watch to boot.

    I'm probably going to spend about $100-$120ish on a computer. What can I get for that money?

    You can get the Polar CS200CAD for $130ish. I had a Cateye CD300DW and hated it: it ate batteries; it interfered w/ my Polar HRM (and the converse was true, too); and it was uber sensitive to e-fields in the environment.

    The Polar is dead reliable (for me), doesn't suffer interference issues, and is muy gentle on batteries.

    Even if I had unlimited funds and thought that I needed GPS, there's no way I'd get the Garmin Edge. That thing vaporizes batteries.
