I don't want my phone or another device involved in it. And I want to buy it all at once in one box or package for a reasonable price.

Is there such a product available?

Depends on what is reasonable to you. Some might think spending more money because it gets them a device in the color to match their bike reasonable even though it also got them more features than they wanted.

Since cadence, speed and distance will require sensors, do you want them wired or wireless? Of course wireless will typically cost more. If you go with a device with GPS, then you will only require a cadence sensor. But GPS means you'll pay a higher price.

So what color is reasonable to you?

Thanks caloso. That is will do and the price is very reasonable.

I don't mind the wires at all, and don't care about appearance or color.

For some reason, people who have more expensive devices seem to push them. The Cateye Strada that was linked does everything OP requires, is often available at an LBS, and you can probably find a price below the MSRP with a simple search.

I have the wired CatEye Strada Cadence and it works just fine. Also took me a while to figure out which device. Sometimes the sensors move around and have to be readjusted is my only complaint, but this is true of all sensors.

most attach it to the bike computers will do that..

It needs 2 inputs .. wheel & crank arm sensors & magnets to pass by the sensors..


Is there such a product available?

yes @ Bike Shops buy it there and they will help put it on your bike..
