I have had this computer for atleat 10 years. when i bought it, it came with a light kit and stickers. one of the best cyclo-computers you could get for the money you paid. i'm really sad that i now have to buy a new one after riping the wire out of the 'holder' while mtbing.

Submitted by Young Jerome a Cross Country Rider from Alaska

Date Reviewed: December 12, 2001

Strengths:    Cheap.

Weaknesses:    The buttons are way too easy to accidentally push. I always found that somewhere during a ride I had accidentally bumped the start/stop button so that the computer stopped recording information on my ride only part way through. The first time this happened I figured it was a freak accident. But it kept happening. I got frustrated enough I tossed the piece of junk. I now have a Mity 3, where the buttons are much harder to accidentally push. The Mity 3 works like its supposed to.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy it. You will lose the ride data you bought the thing to record.

Date Reviewed: November 30, 2001

Strengths:    Many functions, resists well to rain and dirt

Weaknesses:    The wire is a bit fragile. I had to replace it twice. The odometer resets if you remove the battery.

Bottom Line:   
It was probably the best cyclo computer you could buy a few years ago. It's still a very good option these days, if you are able to find it in any shop. If you do, remember that it' an old model and it should be sold cheaper... The central unit looks better than the ones on more recent models.

Submitted by Chris a Weekend Warrior from Richmond

Date Reviewed: November 12, 2001

Strengths:    I have the older model. It has taken ALL the abuse I have ever given it. It has been at least 4 years and it is still on the first Battery!
I fully enjoy all of the features- distance odo for both trip and overall. Average Speed is very helpfull for training type rides. Stop watch to time your run. and of course speedometer and max speed to see how fast your were bombing that last downhill.


Weaknesses:    A little tough on set up due to the useless directions. I had to just play with it to figure out the features. A little trouble to switch from my old Cannodale to my new fat forks on my Rock Shocks- No help from LBS so I had to rig something up.

Bottom Line:   
Very good cheap light computer. The wire is a little wimpy but so what! The only trouble i ever had was crashing hard on some rocks it reset itself (just the trip stuff not the overall odo) once. I even washed it in the washing machine and it was still working great!!
Never had to change the battery. Very helpfull in logging miles for repairs and check ups. Good value and good product 5 flaming MULES!!

Date Reviewed: August 29, 2001

Strengths:    Small, Easy to use buttons. ODO has Km/hm for me (Canadian)

Weaknesses:    When setting the clock you have to be careful not to reset the ODO because this has happened to me a few times. The mount for the fork can only be used on 1 or 2 bikes till the "unresetable" tie style strip makes the cirle to small for thick forks.

Bottom Line:   
Good Computer for the money. I payed 50.00 CND. Recommended

Strengths:    Looks purdy and doesn't squeal like a pig
Works fine


Weaknesses:    the both button reset thing

Bottom Line:   
I've had mine for over three years and have had no complaints.It's survived all weather and many crashes.
I crashed last week and destroyed the mounting bracket. So i went to my LBS and ordered a new one.
It does every thing i need it to with no hassles, i like that in a product.

Submitted by Alex Tromp a Cross Country Rider from Apeldoorn, The Netherlands

Date Reviewed: May 10, 2000

Strengths:    Basic functions

Weaknesses:    Needs lot of pushing on the buttons, but erases data easily if you accidentaly push both at the same time, sensor mounting, early breakdown

Bottom Line:   
Stupid thing. Broke down after four months of use. I tought it was the sensor moving on the fork again because of my fork legs being to thick for the band, but there just wasn't a signal coming through.

The sensor mounting on the fork was bothering me anyway, why didn't Cateye provided tie wrap fitment like on the Velo 1. Just got that out of place once in 14 months.

Might be good if it doesn't break down and fits straight onto the forkleg

Submitted by Daniel a Cross Country Rider from Barrie, Ontario, CANADA

Date Reviewed: March 10, 2000

Strengths:    Works well, clicks into mount, all the info you need

Weaknesses:    Occassionally resets, clock displays 0:00 instead of 12:00

Bottom Line:   
This computer has worked fine for four years. My original Cateye is on my Beater/Pavement bike, and it's been going for six years.

I ride 50-70km per week (2-3 rides), and the computer occassional resets itself during the ride (about 1 or 2 times per month). This is not a big deal.

The computer has survived lots of endoes and crashes. It probably helps that it is mounted next to the stem on riser bars--the riser bars are like a roll cage.

I didn't change the first battery for 3 years, but now I change it at the beginning of every season, just to be sure.

It is inexpensive, and it works.

Date Reviewed: August 12, 1999

Strengths:    
Price-$20
Durability


Weaknesses:    
Unintentional resets
Expensive mounting kit


Bottom Line:   
This is a very good computer. It has all the necessary functions and it's very durable. I've had this thing soaking wet, covered in mud, and it's even survived a few endos. The only gripes I have are the buttons, if you're not careful you'll reset all your ride data. The other problem is the fork sensor mount. I got a new fork that has bigger diameter legs than my old R.S. Indy so I went to my LBS to get a new mounting kit. The kit is freakin' 15 bucks, I got the computer for $20, what's up with that Cat Eye? Five chilis for the computer, minus one for the mounting kit.
