Strengths:    Reliable, solid and the most accurate computer I have ever used. Fair price. Looks good.

Bottom Line:   
I was always skeptical about Cateye products but this one basically convinced me, so I wanted to spread the word. If you don't want to go wireless and just need a basic computer that is light and accurate, here it is.

Date Reviewed: July 28, 2008

Strengths:    2 bike/wheel sizes, small, durable, very water resistant, all the functions you need.

Weaknesses:    Cable is a little fragile.

Bottom Line:   
Great computer. After about two or three weeks of use I noticed it was acting erratic. Sometimes it would work other times there would be no communication with the sensor. Read a review on here about this and called Cateye. Just like the other reviewer said, Cateye mailed a new sensor+cable to me free. They made sure to tell me not to zip-tie the cable too tight and this wasn't a warrantied part so basically don't break any more of them. Either way I got my new stuff in 4 days and all is well. I probably damaged the cable when I moved it to the other side of my fork. Cateye is a great company.

Bottom Line:   
Cateye Enduro 8

This comp. never failed. I've used it under shower rains, dusty storms, muddy muds, etc. It works all the mone i've payed. Some guys take off their computers during the rain - i never did. Nice logics, it reacts fast when changing the measure mode. Nice, clear digits-always visible. It's a pity that it has no backlite. Though this was never a huge loss to me.
Great value for the money.

Submitted by Steven Adams a Weekend Warrior from Shalersville, OH, USA

Date Reviewed: April 12, 2008

Strengths:    Durable, ease of operation, ease of viewing, visual appeal.

Weaknesses:    Recommended cable attachment with zip ties, limited number of functions, pick-up sensor is easily moved out of place by trail debris.

Bottom Line:   
I have had the Cat Eye Enduro CC-ST250 on a bike for over 10 years now with very minimal problems. the unit mounts nicely to the handle bars and while the mount is plastic it has survived numerous heavy crashes. The Read out is large enough to be easily read without being the size of a small TV. The function buttons are easy to use and work every time they are pressed. The unit is also very visually appealing (mine is a limitedly produced red with dual white racing stripes).

The only drawback I have found over 10 years of use would be that the pick-up sensor is easily moved out of position by trail debris. I was also not a big fan of the recommended routing and mounting of the cable, but if you take some time and coil wrap the cable around the brake cable it makes for a much cleaner and durable installation.

Submitted by Sooth a Weekend Warrior from Daejeon, Korea

Date Reviewed: October 17, 2007

Strengths:    You can select what you want to see displayed in large numbers.
Seems hardy. Will know more after this winter.


Weaknesses:    Clock drifts (around 7 minutes in 1 week for my case). This does throw some suspicion on whether the measurements are really THAT accurate but it's only a very minute error of around 0.042s per minute. I don't think most people need such high accuracy but it would be nice if you didn't need to reset the time every week.
No backlights.


Bottom Line:   
A product which does what it's supposed to do. I'll probably use it for a long, long time as it has almost all the features that I need, except for the backlight.
If you want to measure your speed, trip distance, time moving, max. speed, average speed, and an odometer, this one meets all your requirements.

Bottom Line:   
Aside from the instructions, this product is flawless. It is 100% accurate and has survived some pretty bad accidents. Even if it does break it you can get it on ebay for $15. No frills!!!!

Strengths:    easy to set up! took 5 minutes, got both wheel sizes in, time. easy and straight forward

Weaknesses:    i hate zip ties - duct tape is much cleaner

Bottom Line:   
easy - easy to read, plenty of info - heck it's supposed to keep time, track distance and speed, not to much. it does it well and does not break.

Submitted by Tony a Weekend Warrior from SSI, GA

Date Reviewed: July 23, 2006

Strengths:    I have the one with the thicker wiring. Bombproof, great battery life, large digits, set up and forget. survived multiple crashes, storms, and clocking me at 49mph on a mountain bike :)

Weaknesses:    It has a wire and is not backlit...? It also doesn't make me ride faster or cook my dinner, nor have rocket launchers, and doesn't come in fancy colors. so to sum it up, I don't see a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
Get this computer and you'll not regret it. It does not have cadence nor heartrate nor backlight nor is it wireless. But what it does do, it does so with complete dominance. Don't be tempted by those fancy wireless computers with all the gadgets. This computer doesn't ever skip a beat. It's an old design but it works...so very well.

Date Reviewed: February 4, 2006

Strengths:    Easy to use. Large screen makes it easy to read. 2 different trip meters are nice!

Weaknesses:    Plastic bracket that attaches the computer to the handle bars is flimsy. My bike fell while in the back of my truck and the plastic band where the screw sets tension broke. No problem though! Pulled out the dewalt drill and drilled a new hole. Works fine now (for now).

Bottom Line:   
Good product with good features for a really good price. Only down side is the cheap band, other than that I would highly recommend it.

Date Reviewed: November 4, 2005

Strengths:    heavy duty wire

Weaknesses:    Bracket that mounts on handlebar is brittle plastic and broke the first ride out.

Bottom Line:   
Riding in the snow last month (yeah there was snow in October)I was excited to try out the Enduro, I had just gotten the tire size set up and I want see if it was accurate. It was cool but not cold probably 55, on one of the shady decents hit an icy spot and I bumped the unit and the plastic mount broke. So I had to use eletrical tape to hold it on.

It's not covered by warranty, but you can pick up a replacement wire/ bracket for ~$15.

Date Reviewed: April 6, 2004

Strengths:    Extremely Durable
Two bike setup
Good display
Reasonably priced


Weaknesses:    Have yet to update time
Multi Bike capabilities increase complexity


Bottom Line:   
Very Durable. When not being ridden, my bike(s) spend a lot of time in the bed of my truck via a 2x6 & Bovine clamp setup. I constantly forget to remove the unit; resulting in exposure to all seasons, 70+ mph wind, rain, 100+ TX heat. The unit has had NO problems other than some fading and one nasty grasshopper hit. No need for two units since unit switches between road and ATB bike (cables and brackets had to be purchased separately). However the unit can be a bit more complex to learn at first but not impossible. (Except for time)

Date Reviewed: August 10, 2002

Strengths:    Great little thing. Easy to install. Easy to set up! The wire is extra stong when looking at other computers the the mity's. The battery life was good. Powersave functions works well (could be better)

Weaknesses:    Needs to come with more zip-ties. The power save function one will kick in after an hour. Wish it was a little shorter.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a comp that will work well for both road and off, then this the comp for you. The basic 7 functions are all you will need. As for features, it has duel tire size memory and auto start and stop for the average speed (trust me this is a big plus) plus a few other things. Great comp, great price down as low as $20 on bikenashbar.com
