    Comments about Planet Bike Protege 8.0 Bike Computer:

    I am not handy at all, yet was able to easily install the computer on my bike. It has worked well from the start. After about five months and 2K miles no real problems, though the sensor and magnet can get misaligned rather easily.

            I bought it as a cheap clock to have on my rides. Now I cannot do without knowing distance, speed, time riding etc. Be sure there's enough clearance for the magnet to pass the fork. (Hint: if you have 23 mm tires there's probably not.) On most bikes it should be fine, otherwise head to your local bike shop for a thinner magnet. It's still a great deal.

                        Comments about Planet Bike Protege 8.0 Bike Computer:

                        The PB Protege 8.0 is a great value bike computer. It displays a lot of info on one screen and you can toggle to find out other aggregate details like AVG MPH and Total miles (not just for a particular trip). The color of this computer is matte gray/silver. It almost looks transparent on the website picture. I like that you can buy a separate mount (from PB) and this computer can track two bicycles. I prefer computers with wire mounts over wireless bike computers because you don't have to worry about any electronic interference. This computer is simple and easy to use. The battery also seems to last a lot longer than the PB 9.0 model that also displays temperature.

                          This computer is so easy to install and setup, and use, I love it. It turns on and off on its own. That is to say when the bike is moving it runs and when you stop the computer stops. Just enter the wheel size and the time and thats all you have to do, wow I love that. The price is also great.

                              The Protege 8.0 comes with mounting hardware for the handle bar. There should not be any problem mounting to a Towne 21 road bike.
