Hi I would buy a Garmin 200 they are going for about £80 if you shop around, found my I Phone used to run out of battery life before I finished ride.

Was also worried about loosing it or damaging it? cheaper to replace garmin than Iphone.

Cateye micro wirless is £35 and does the job very sturdy for MTB. I have that on the bars so I can see what i've done and strava on my phone in the rucksack

iphone in pocket, £5 computer from aldi or lidl on the bars for current speed while riding is the cheapest way of doing it.

Spend a bit more if you want to go wireless.

Strava gives so much info and detail for so little money (free) and saves all your rides and routes. I do recommend trying it first. If you haven't seen what it does click on one of the links on the "your ride today" thread

That said I've just spent a lot more on a Cateye q3a. But I am buying something for the bike weekly just to keep my interest up Laughing
