Need a Bike Computer with Cadence function(3 posts)

I'm looking at Campy ErgoBrain, Vetta V100 with wireless cadence, and a Specialized model featuring wireless cadence. I'm not hungup on wireless just thought It be nice not to have My bike full of wires and zipties. Also no need for a Heart Rate function as I already have a HR monitor.
Thanks in advance.

The Cateye Astrale has been a proven design that many road and atb'ers like real well. It isn't wireless, but you wont pay the price for one either; usually you can get one for about $30 on sale. I've installed a few of these units on friends bikes and never had a problem routing the cables underneath, coupled with matching frame-color electrical tape, it looks neat.

The Astrale is a good cheap computer. I've had one on my bike since '95 and it's been great. I originally installed it on my bike, and then moved it over when I bought a new frame.
