Very Happy suppose it's what is a good price? There are mixed reviews as there always is on the internet. I suppose it's whether you need a power meter or just a cycle computer.
Personally I like the Garmin Edge products for all the data they can record' cadence' heart etc. (705 Edge) and the routes' courses, history they retain and can be used for training, oh and the excellent gps, maps, navigation and routeing. cyclops

Keith, sorry I didnt get back to you on FB, but saw your post on here, so thought i'd reply.

I've had 2 power meters so far, had the I-Bike pro since last July, and find it v useful. The main benefit is that it can be transferred from different bikes easily, where most (if not all) power metres are limited to one bike.

Like most things technical, it has its good and bad points, but its good points outweigh the bad points hugely.

I could bore you with the benefits of power training, but I wont.

I'm not sure I would buy one 2nd hand though because of the warranty issues, depends how much it is offered for.

If you want any more info let me know

I'm on my way back from Northern Spain tomorrow so wont be online for a few days
