Strengths:    Low price, practicality, well made, has all the basic features, does what it says it will do. Easy to read and operate.

Weaknesses:    Quits in heavy rain, but then most computers do.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the older version- they came out with an updated model this year ('03) that I haven't tried yet. I have two of these and use them on all my bikes, I bought extra mounts that Performance sells for about 10 bucks. Another cool thing is that you can program it to use on 2 different wheel sizes so that going back and force from the mountain bike to the road bike isn't a problem.
I've had NO problems with this computer and it performs as advertised.

Strengths:    Functional computer.

Weaknesses:    Only indicates miles in 0.5 mph increments

Bottom Line:   
I had 2 of these. One died because the electroics fried themselves (indicated I was doing 112 mph). The other died in a natural death in an endo. I would not buy this again becuase the 2 I had didn't stay in the cradle well, one just quit on me (multiple resets and battery change didn't help) an d it only indicated 0.5 mph increments.

The specialized ones are OK but not as well made as the Cateye.

Cateye is a much better computer - very Japanese in that it indicates mph in 0.01 increments which is silly.

Strengths:    Quality construction, waterproof, ease of use, price.
Oh yea, and the auto start/stop is awsome!


Weaknesses:    Not wireless (but it's a lot cheaper)

Bottom Line:   
The Axiom 8.0 does everything one would need it to do very well. I've only used it for 3 months now, but I have absolutely zero complaints. The ONLY reason someone shouldn't buy this computer is if they are looking for one that is under $25.
