Submitted by Matt a Cross Country Rider from Matthews, NC

Date Reviewed: February 7, 2008

Strengths:    Simple, easy to switch displays will riding, apparenlty ment for the trails

Weaknesses:    Would have been nice to have clock on front page always.

Bottom Line:   
I have an old one so I am not sure what the updated version has now but this one has done me well. I know I have knocked the crap out of this sensor in the past from wrecks and I am just now looking for a new sensor but the computer appears to be fine. Don't remember what I paid. Never replaced battery yet. Its probably due one.

Strengths:    Durable, Durable, Durable,(heavy duty wire) nothing else needs to be said!!!

Weaknesses:    Have not found any

Bottom Line:   
The reason that there is over 150 reviews on this product should be enough, the bottom line stops with Cateye!

Date Reviewed: July 31, 2007

Strengths:    Durable, easy to navigate features, easy installation, convenient to use with one hand whilst riding (though you should really be looking where you're going). Waterproof, shockproof. VERY shockproof.

Weaknesses:    Cable tie on the sensor is slightly messy. Securing clip on the handlebar bracket is useless, unit will fall off if you bump it.

Bottom Line:   
It has been very durable, reliable and served me well. Like I mentioned earlier, the locking-bracket is very poor so it occasionally gets knocked off. It has flown off, bounced on some rocks and then gone under my wheels before... (ouch!) but came out unscathed apart from some minor scratches.

It's a great computer, I couldn't want more from it apart from cadence measurement or heartrate monitor (which I probably won't use anyway). A wireless system would be the only reason for an upgrade.

Would have gotten 5 flamin' chillis of not for the poor locking bracket design.

Strengths:    Durability, simplicity, design.

Weaknesses:    The zip ties are not a good solution to keeping the sensor stuck to the fork. Also, instructions made me want to cry out in frustration. Who designed these monstorous things.

Bottom Line:   
Cheap and durable. If it is somehow lost in a crash I will just replace it....it's only $20!!! Four chilli's due to the retarded instructions.

Strengths:    simplisity (is that a word?), cheap, available parts, waterproof, (mine has gone throught the washer and dryer more then once) there isnt much that can go wrong with this thing, ive had it on three bikes (two wheel size can be programmed) and its still doing its job

Weaknesses:    programming it is kind of a pain in the neck with all the differnt tire size codes but once you get it set its ready to go until you get different size tires.

Bottom Line:   
you could kick this thing in the liver and would would keep running, its cheap simple and durable. its been through the washer and dryer a few times no problem..

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2006

Strengths:    It works. Day in and day out, this little thing has worked for over 5 years without a problem. I ride year round through heat, rain, mud, crashes...nothing has phased it. I use it every ride and never had a problem. I like the small size as it stays out of the way but the display is big enough. The buttons are big enough to work with gloves. Batteries last a long, long time.

Weaknesses:    None. I suppose it would be nice if it automatically adjusted to standard/daylight savings time changes on the 24 hour clock.

Bottom Line:   
I don't know what more I could have asked for from this unit. Mount it and remember to reset at the start of each ride and you have most of the data you might want. Highly recommended.

Strengths:    Easy to read. Accurate. Plenty of features. Heavy gauge wire to sending unit. Buttons can be worked with gloves on. Value.

Weaknesses:    Can be a little difficult to get setup. Took me about 30 minutes of playing around with it to figure out how everything works. After that, no problems.

Bottom Line:   
Great computer! Works well, easy to read, and tough. Once you get it set up and figure out all the modes, its easy. I think my $30 was very well spent!

Submitted by Mike a Weekend Warrior from Calgary, Canada

Date Reviewed: March 23, 2005

Strengths:    The heavy duty cable, the battery lasts forever it seems and the size of the display is acceptable. Bought it cheap too

Weaknesses:    Lots of em! The button placement on the bottom does not work well, it's better to have them on top, and one of the rubber buttons ripped.
To remove the computer from the mounting bracket can be really difficult sometimes. I also found navigating through the different features confusing as a some of the operations require you to push two and even 3 buttons all at once!
I'm not sure why but for some reason the maximum speed it will read is around 30 MPH, not sure why it won't read higher. I go down some steep hills and am pretty sure I've exceeded what the computer says.



Bottom Line:   
Cat Eye did'nt design it very well, if it was'nt for the heavy duty wiring I would not have bought it.

Strengths:    Fairly accurate, easy to set up

Weaknesses:    The wire and harness

Bottom Line:   
I kept going back to the Enduro line for price and that huge cable, but when I fall or catch my fork/bars funny the wire just pulls out of the harness. I've gone through 3 computers and an extra harness. Now that wireless has got more reliable, I'm going to spend the extra buck!

This computer is work every penny. It has endured lots of tough riding and vibrations on the trail. And last week, i found it at the bottom of my washing machine. Apparently, i had left it in my shorts pockets when i took it off the bike. Still work perfectly after a wash, rinse and spin cycle! how many computers can do that? My next computer will be Cateye.

Strengths:    Display, cost

Weaknesses:    The mounting bracket

Bottom Line:   
The cpu works fine and the heavy duty wire is nice for off road use. The problem is with the mounting bracket which breaks if you look at it funny. I've had 2 enduros one I broke off in a crash (thats understandable) the other was vibrated to dealth and broke. The piece that holds onto the handlebar is very thin for off road use. Buy something more rugged such as a specialized they are far more durable.

Strengths:    durable, price, display, option of thick wire

Weaknesses:    Color...purple, it was all they had

Bottom Line:   
Bang for buck, this thing is it. The display is nice and big, and the features are straight forward. It's been dropped and keeps on going. My friend was trying to put it back on while riding and dropped it. We were going about 17 mph, and it bounced for a while, but it's fine.

the thicker wire option is much more durable. If you have the choice get the bigger wire.

Date Reviewed: February 16, 2004

Strengths:    Bombproof, as far as I can tell.

Weaknesses:    Backlight would be nice, but then again, so would world peace.

Bottom Line:   
I've used this in all weathers, in temperatures ranging from -4F to 100+, mainly on my daily 14-mile round-trip commute for over 3 years and can honestly say that the only problem I've had is the sensor moving and causing the computer not to register. Colorado has the best cycling climate I know of, but it can be a little, shall we say, extreme at times. This puppy can handle it all. I'm about to reach the 20,000 mark on the odometer and most of those miles have been logged by my Enduro 2. Oh, and I'm on the original battery. Buy this.
