Is this overpriced piece of jewelry worth it? really?

(I can get it for cost, and have too big of a bike fetish.)

I went with a 720 on the fiance's bike, but going ergobrain on my record bike.

Also, does it mount with the contained hardware in the package on an OS bar?

it's not worth it, but if you want it, get it! aside from the gear display and the handlebar buttons, though, it's no different from any other computer. I would have got something else if I'd known.
the Shimano Flight Deck does the exact same thing at half the price. too bad it doesn't work with Campy.

I found mine for $99 at Col Cyclist then used a $50 gift certificate - so it was worth it to me.

Mounting on an OS bar? I don't know what an OS bar is...??

Versus my cateye astrale - I would pay the extra for the EB. I use the functions all the time. Now that I have them (the xtra functions), it would drive me nuts not to have them available. It is expensive, but if you can get it at cost and you have a "bike fetish", then buy it!

You need to separately purchase the oversize clamp part.
