Bike Computers?

Hey folks,

I'm an old masters racer that's getting back into cycling. Do people still use computers, or are you using phone apps? What are people using?

All my bikes are running a mix of wired or wireless SRM's so tied into their head units.

Wouldn't be keen to have something as big as my mobile out front!

I use a Wahoo Bolt. I like it a lot.

IMO, a phone is just too big, but I know people who do that.

Garmin Edge 130.

I don't need color, touchscreen, or big maps. I just need something to talk to my powermeter. This works.

There's a lot of folks using dedicated GPS cycling computers. Expensive little suckers (but worth it) that use GPS to track your time, track and speed (Garmin, Wahoo, hammerhead, Lezyne as typical). Most upload a saved and completed ride to a website so you can log your workouts. Most allow a route to be created online and downloaded to the device that gives you an on-screen map as well as turn-by-turn directions. The Bolt and the Garmin 130 are typical. There are pricier versions as well. I'm a map and data junky so love my Hammerhead Karoo 2.
