Speedo or no speedo?(2 posts)

Speedo or no speedo?Jakob
Aug 30, 2002 2:35 PM
I have a computer on my old cross bike and am thinking about putting one on my new bike. I have found it helpful with knowing where I am in the duration of a race. I don't see computers on other riders' bikes.

Any thoughts?

most racers think computers are added weight. They can tell where they are by their position in the race. I have one on my adventure/commuter and none on my race bike. They also get thrashed in the grit. Most cx racers will tell you, if you have time to look at your speedo you aren't riding hard enough
