Comments:

I've had this for nearly two years now and have ridden in all conditions (snow, rain, heat) and am very happy with it. It is very simple to use. I mounted the display on my stem in less than a minute. The sensor mounts to the fork with two zip ties. Then there is a small metal disc that attached to a spoke. It took a few tries to get the sensor to pickup correctly. Even after switching bikes last fall, everything worked great...just needed two new zip ties for the fork. Operation is simple. It stays in sleep mode until you rotate the front wheel. You reset the timer before each ride by pushing down on the lower part of the display for a few seconds. To toggle through the screens, you just keep pressing on the lower part of the display. Other than that, there are no moving parts. I don't wear my bifocals to ride, so I sometimes find it hard to read the display. No fault of the bike computer. It is small, sleek and lightweight. More importantly, it does the job. I ride the same routes over and over again, and the mileage is spot on each time. I can't say the same for the time and the pace. Again, that's because of me. Go buy it. If you are a no frills rider, you'll like it.

    Comments:

    I bought this because I wanted a better bike computer, and didn't want to fiddle with installing a wire along the fork. The installation instructions were clear, and since I already knew my wheel measurement, it only took about 15 minutes to install. I like that when I'm wearing gloves in cold weather, I can just press the face of the unit to change the display settings, as opposed to trying to press a small button. The only problem I've noticed is that occasionally, when I go over a bump, the unit thinks I've pressed it and it changes the setting. This is not consistent, and it is hardly a reason not to buy it. One other thing I like is that when I'm stopped at a red light, it doesn't include the idle time into the average speed calculation. Because I commute on my bike, I try to keep my average speed above 15mph, and idle time distorts the average, since I can't really control how long I'm stopped. Highly recommended.

        hooked up many in the past this did not seem to provide the proper spacers to align the magnet close enough. Ripped it off in frustration to buy a new

          This is a good product. I have never seen one with any durability issues, and its compact design allows for easy installation on a handlebar or stem. It is accurate and easy to use. It can also be switched between bikes without much hassle, due to its wireless design and versatile clamp mount.
