|I already have a computer with HRM and a watch with altimeter. Does anyone know if there is just a computerized inclinometer that I can mount on my bike?. I have a non-computerized one I use for backcountry skiing and climbing, but not practical for riding since I would have to get off my bike to read it. ???|

The Snowsports models might be more suited than the diving.
Just strap the watch to the bars.

|Cross Sports is the line to look at.|
|Thx, I have a Suunto with altimeter already.||MKD|

|I was hoping there would be just a inclinometer out there but I think that I may have to buy a new watch or a bike computer to get one. I was hoping to not have to fork out the money for a multi-function system. Thx|

|There is a bubble-style inclinometer that goes on the handlebar. It's called Sky Mounti, made in Germany, and you can get it at Velimpex, and possibly other places as well.
I have one, and it is more fun than scientific unless you stop, because any change of speed will influence the reading, so when pedaling up a hill, it tends to oscillate, and when going down, any braking will put it off. You also have to be very careful to set it up on a truly level surface. But it is fairly informative once you get the hang of it. With steady pedaling, you can get a pretty good average reading as the bubble rocks back and forth.

Doesn't oscillate on me, unless I stand.

|my Specialized Speedzone pro computer has one built in. It is pretty accurate, and doenst oscillate like the air bubble in fluid version.

|Our fearless leader Doug thinks the Speedzone Pro stinks, but just like you, I like the device just fine. It may not be 100% trustworthy. I've discovered, for example, that it'll give a slightly steeper reading when you're going up your favorite hill than when you're going down it. But all in all, a worthy chunk of plastic.|
