New Bike Toy

I ordered a Cateye Velo 8 bicycle computer from  It arrived today at work, so I installed it before my ride back to my car.

I had estimated the distance to 6 miles, and the Cateye measured it as 5.91 miles.  I rode that distance in 32 minutes.  It’ll be neat to compare different routes, and my average speeds.

Don’t take this as an endorsement of the product.  The last time I saw a speedometer on a bike it was mechanical.  I haven’t kept up on bicycle technology, and even the lowest-end stuff seems cool to me.

  1. I’m sure it’s awesome.. I’ve owned two different “computers” for my bike.. one even kept track of altitude change if I fed it the right info.. now on my road to out-of-shape-dom I don’t have a bike computer.. hmm..
