Computers w/ Cadence and show your Gear?(3 posts)

Computers w/ Cadence and show your Gear?shamelessgearwhore

I'm getting a bike w/ 10 speed Campy Centaur and was wondering about computers that show your gear as well as cadence. I read the reviews on the Campy computer and it seems like many people are dissatisfied with them. Are there any other ones out there that show what gear you are in? I would find that feature to be very useful now that I will have a 30 spd bike!
nope, only campy. (nm)sievers11

When I thought I was going to get a Centaur bike (I ended up with an Ultegra bike) I read everything there was to read about the ergobrain 10. Once you get past the price it seems quite good and most reviews are favorable.

One of the benefits in getting Shimano this year is the Flitedeck is cordless. Cadence is virtual but from what people say its good.

Biggest beef with the ergobrain is complexity and mostly price. But you will get your gear readings and I think you can set it so that you get beeps if your cadence falls below a certain speed. You have to set it but that would be a good thing I think.
