The draw: Lots of data, small price

Why pay for a powerful piece of electronics for the front of your bike when you already have one sitting in your jersey pocket? If you ride with a smartphone, Wahoo has a way to display your data—GPS, power, heart rate and anything else with a Bluetooth connection—without putting your phone at risk or dropping another large sum of cash. The RFLKT displays all the data collected by a few popular cycling apps. It won’t work for races, but is a worthy option for a training bike.
