Tony: “Old school Edge 305″ what a hoot!!! The Edge series hasn’t even been around for 10 years. Old school would be the mechanical counter bolted to the front axle. I really don’t see a need for GPS on a bike. I know where I’m riding. Do you? How hard is it to find the next town? You can’t read all the signs or follow several thousand cyclist? My 30 buck CatEye does 90% of what a 600 buck edge does.

Oh, I see you are a purist … or is that elitist? I forget. GPS as a training/tracking tool has it’s advantages that a regular cycle computer can’t touch. Old school was also meant from the view of “old school” GPS units. But my guess is you knew that also, but felt the need to show us all how silly we really are. 8)
