Newbie spinner here - I've just bought an old Keiser Millennium Orange / Grey bike - I'm not sure what the model is,maybe its an M2?
I am wondering if there's anyway to add any kind of cadence/odometer/computer onto it?
Many thanks!

It would not be hard to get cadence and heart rate, but power is not likely. I once hooked up a Wahoo cadence meter to a keiser bike that had no computer, and then with a Wahoo heart strap both came up on my iPhone, which obviously had time as well. Distance and speed are complete bogus numbers on any indoor bike so in my opinion you have most of what you need there. The other option now a days though would also be the Polar PowerCal heart rate/power strap - this also shows power on many iPhone apps like Ride Buddy Pro, but it is based on heart rate and an algorithm - not as accurate as measured or even calculated power - but not a bad attempt at approximation.
