I have a Cateye Cordless 2 on my mtb and would like to know which is a good computer for my road bike. I know that I can buy another mounting harness and sensor for the road bike but it costs more than a new computer. I have last year's ultegra shifters, but after reading the reviews on the flightdeck and the price for the whole set-up, don't think it's the best option. What do most of the pro's use? IS cordless needed for the road?

I use cordless off road and a Cateye Mity 3 for the road. If you can live with orange, Nashbar is closing out the Mity 3 in orange for $13.32. It has the same functions as your current computer except the read out for MPH is much larger. Mine is going on 4 and a half years with the factory battery. LoL

If you like the one you're using - why not just buy another one? You are already familiar with the featurs and how to use it. Most of the pros use whatever is given to the team FREE (USPS uses Vetta). Cordless isn't needed, it just looks cleaner (if that's a consideration). You MIGHT have cross-signaling problems with a cordless if you're using a heart-rate monitor.

I enjoy my CatEye Astrale. The Cadence function is very useful on the road. But it all does depend on what you want in a computer. Mine has been perfect for my needs.

because I like knowing things like altitude, gradient and temperature.

But before getting the Ciclo, I had long used Cateye Mity 3's because they were so simple, reliable and cheap.
