Should a computer have a resting place on a CX bike? your vote can be placed in the comments.

my reasoning is that my road bike is up in the rafters, and the CX ride is my only hoopdy (by choice).
I mean, how else would I tally my velog??? I have never seen the HR during a CX race, so my piqued (Liz) interest has the best of me. Plus, look at it all nestled up under the flaming Hot S of the Slingshot fork...

Yes, JB, the bar tape is being replenished tonight with blood red when I replace all the cables. I'd like to get a red saddle also.

    Computers need to go on everything. Without numbers to log, the training doesn't count.

    Of course computers are fine on a cross bike. It's always good to know how far you went. All those who say no to the computer are just jealous cause they won't pony up a few bucks to put on one their bikes.
    I used my Garmin last year at each race (i always took it off before the race for fear that i would hit it with my knee and lose it during a crash)
    I think the UCI should allow disk brakes too!!!(oops, did i go to far)

    if i see you at iron cross with a computer on my ddx i will not be happy.
    wanna know how far you went?????? not far enough! how fast???? seriously not fast enough.
    cross is all about pain and escape, mainly from computers.
    disc brakes...please stopping just makes you go slower.

    carbon bars????????? oh my god!!!can i lick your bike????

    thanks for restoring my faith.

    no computers. If you need to know how far/fast you went ask whoever just finished riding with you. If you rode by yourself, go to mymyride.com and map your loop and the see how far/fast you went. but no computers.
