Computers Guide

 

Cycle Computers Guide

Cycle computers give you access to your data to help you to get more out of your ride. They show you how far you’ve ridden, how fast you are going, direct you where to go, and even connect to sensors on your bike and body to give you more info about your riding techniques.

There are many different types of cycle computer, from simple speed and distance devices to powerful GPS computers like the Pros use. To help you choose the one that’s right for you we’ll take a look at each type of computer along with the sensors and accessories that go with them.


Conventional Cycle Computers

Wired Computers

Wired cycling computers are the simplest and most affordable type of cycle computer. They have a cable that connects to a sensor on your wheel to give you information on your speed and progress. Typically, a wired computer will give you current, maximum, and average speed as well trip distance, total distance and time.

Speed and distance are worked out through your bikes wheel rotations, so the data won’t be as accurate as a GPS computer.

Wireless Computers

Wireless computers also use a wheel sensor, but this is connected wirelessly to keep the lines on your bike clean. These computers offer the same speed and distance data as a wired computer with similar levels of accuracy.

Higher end wireless computers can connect to cadence and heart rate sensors as well as laptops and smartphones using ANT+ and Bluetooth. This gives you more options to learn more about your performance and fine tune your training plan.


GPS Computers

GPS Cycle Computers

GPS Cycle computers add accuracy to your data as well as offering many other useful features including navigation. Using the GPS and GLONASS global satellite navigation systems these cycle computers can tell you exactly where you are and how quickly you are moving. Offering turn by turn navigation on road and trail GPS computers make getting around much easier.

Like high-end wireless computers GPS units use ANT+ and Bluetooth to connect to cadence sensors, heart rate monitors and power meters. You can sync this data to fitness and navigation apps like Strava and Trail Forks to really unlock their potential.

GPS Sports Watches

Sports watches, especially GPS watches, offer a good alternative to traditional cycle computers. GPS watches are essentially a powerful cycle computer that’s worn on your wrist, rather than mounted to your handlebar. Perfect for triathletes and multi-sport athletes you can track all your training without needing to use different devices.

With GPS positioning, these sports watches give you accurate distance data, they can track your pace and monitor altitude. Most GPS watches will sync with heart rate monitors or have built in functionality to track your pulse. They also receive smart notifications and can sync to a wide range of software applications through ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart such as Strava and Zwift.

Heart Rate Monitors

Heart rate sensors are positioned on your chest and held in place with a strap – you often see them on pro cyclists when they undo their jerseys on the climbs. You will be able to view your heart rate on your cycle computer screen. Some smart watches and other wearable tech items feature optical heart rate sensors and are a great alternative to wearing a chest strap.

By monitoring your heart rate in real time, you will be able to adjust the amount of effort you put into your ride. Knowing how your heart rate responds when you cycle will enable you to fine tune your training by riding within certain limits, pushing yourself on intervals and monitoring your recovery.

Connectivity

Wireless and GPS cycle computers use ANT+ or Bluetooth technology to connect to other devices. You will need this if you want to connect to external sensors like power meters and heartrate monitors as well as to your phone, tablet or laptop. Fortunately, most modern devices make this process very easy.

While most computers use both some devices are only ANT+ or Bluetooth compatible. Some cycle computers still require a USB connection to transfer data to a laptop. It’s best to check that your sensors, smartphone and computer, as well as your turbo trainer can all work together nicely by connecting with the cycle computer you intend to buy.

Computer Spares - Sensors & Mounts

Speed and Cadence Sensors

The most notable computer spares are the speed and cadence sensors that attach to your bike and connect to your compatible cycle computer with ANT+, Bluetooth or with wires (on wired cycle computers). Sometimes speed and cadence sensors are combined into one unit that attaches to the chain stay.

Speed sensors monitor the rotation of your front or back wheel which your computer then converts into speed, in much the same way as a speedometer on your car. As well as monitoring your speed in real time a speed sensor will allow you to analyse your average speed and maximum speed post-ride.

Cadence is the rate that your legs turn as you cycle and is measured in revolutions per minute, much like the rev counter on a car. Cadence can have a real effect on your pedalling efficiency and many cyclists find that a high cadence improves their performance. By riding to a specific cadence and then comparing that with your other ride data you will be able to find you optimum cadence and improve your cycling performance.

Computer Mounts

While most cycle computers are supplied with mounts there are a lot of custom mounting options, especially for Garmin computers. A custom mount will allow you to position your computer exactly where you need it on your bike.
