If you ride carbon, Unless you ride in perfect depth and sand then you need two wings. One you have off and repair and the other you ride.

Re: Which watch for real-time speed read out

I use a Polar M600. Cheap and works well and you can configure your readouts and pages for most desired stats. Current speed, max, time, avg, distance etc.
