Two buttons, 6 functions, easy to use and gives you all the basic info you need to go to the next level as an enthusiast. I track my time, distance and average MPH, trying to improve and be a stronger rider. Though the unit is water resistant and wont get damaged in wet weather, the rain or water at times doesnt let the unit complete the connection and doesnt register or track your speed or distance traveled. The little bit I ride in the rain I can live with that.
I have two of these. One on my road bike, and one on my triathlon bike. Gives me all the information I need. I know many people like to train and race with power and that's all well in good, but if you prefer the basics. This item is solid.
First off, I haven't had this on my bike very long. After reading a few reviews and seeing this on sale I decided to purchase it. So far I am happy with it. Mounting the computer on my bars was easy enough for the wired I did cut up pieces of cardboard to stack up on my forks to make sure the wired sensor was close enough to get within specs of the magnetic piece that mounts on the spokes. The instructions aren't that great. I did try several times to get the clock set... in the end I didn't, I didn't order it for the clock anyway. I wanted to know my speed and keep the mileage on my bike. I'm giving it three stars cause the instructions aren't that great and the clock issues.
Very simple, basic and straight forward cycle computer. I like the one button operation. numbers are good to read. Only one battery to deal with. Easy to cycle through functions. Nothing negative to say yet.
This little computer is really made well. The instructions were a bit baffling, but the install really went well- much simpler than the instructions make it seem.
It comes packed with 7 zip ties which is nice if you screw one up. (I did!)
The display is large, crystal clear, and can be read in direct sunlight. Just awesome.
The one bad thing about it? It shows the unpleasant truth about just how slow I am!
Great product. I reccomend it without reservation. (It ships with battery already installed!)
Just what I needed for my little mule city mountain bike! Gives me the basic information that I need while at the same time is rock solid. Now that I can keep track of my miles it's less of a guess when I should be doing maintenance too.
This is a low cost, yet very useful device for general biking. It has all the function I need to help me train. I also like to use it on long bike hikes.
It took a while, but was not too hard to put on my bike. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, but still want to know how far and fast you are going, I would get this one.
Installed pretty easily with the usual hassle of setting a digital device. I haven't found any way to set the overall odometer mileage. Since I replaced one that had 18,500 miles on it it would be nice to be able to register that in this unit. It tracks the speed and mileage accurately and is easy to set the trip distance. This company is excellent to deal with. I placed this order just before leaving for several days and asked them to delay the shipment so it would arrive after I returned. Their timing was perfect.
I am tickled to death to have such a good operaating Cateye Computer. As I stated above, my other one I paid a little more than $26.00, and it worked about like a 19Cent one lol. I was so fed up with the way that it worked that I just went into to the bicycle shop and ask the attendant what was a good computer, he told me, The Cateye is the oldest and the best made for any price. He sure was right about the performance of my Cateye, it has not missed an inch of calculating except, for the time I forgot to put it back in its saddle on my ride home lmao. Oh well, Crap happens!, they say lmao! Well, thanks for allowing me to share my enjoyment with my new CATEYE COMPUTER.

For the price this is a great value. I've had one for about 1 12 years, with a bit over 1,000 miles on it. I like the simple one button operation feature, whereas some have two buttons...The set up directions are a bit confusing, but you are smart you will figure it out. The main draw back to this model is the absence of trip time...So on all my other bikes I have the Velo 8 which has this feature, wish the Velo 8 was offered here on this site.
