please don't forget the Rhode Gear dashboard, I mean computer...It has about a dozen buttons and was the size of a small kitten. I got one for my first road bike in 1988. then about 10 years later I saw in a small bike shop in Erie the heart rate add on for the model Rhode Gear that I had...what were the odds, I bought it for $5. call me crazy.
