Strengths:    Ok for price.

Weaknesses:    Not good for aerobike frames. Sensor mounts too close to wheel spokes making it necessary to mount further back on chainstay. If this is describes your bike, it renders the candence sensor useless since that installs on the crankarm.

Bottom Line:   
Ok product but not for every frame.

Date Reviewed: September 1, 2011

Strengths:    Works exactly as advertised, and works well. Easy installation and setup, accurate speed and cadence, no interference seen (at least none yet).

Weaknesses:    Display was dim out of the box - could be because the battery it came with is old - I haven't tried replacing the battery to find out, it's not (yet) so dim that I can't read it.

Bottom Line:   
If you want wireless speed and cadence, and don't need extras such as offered by the high-end Sigma ROX or Garmin units, this is the computer for you. Priced right, and works well.

Favorite Trail:   25 mile loop: half flat, half hilly (up to 10% grade)

Duration Product Used:   Less than 1 month

Price Paid:    $40.00

Purchased At:   Price Point

Similar Products Used:   Serfas 3.3 (which is junk in comparison to the Sette Alpha X 17), Sigma ROX 9.0(definitely better than the Sette, but also costs about 5x as much)

Bike Setup:   Installed on my 'cross bike, which I use in bad weather, on dirt roads, etc. It replaced a Serfas 3.3 which I was never happy with (the cadence worked only sometimes, then finally died completely - and it wasn't the battery).

Strengths:    Works as advertised. Good stem mount. No problems what-so-ever.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I don't have a lot of experience with cycle computers, as I've only used three in my riding experience. Both Sette FX-3 & Alpha X have worked for me as advertised & no problems. I'm of the mindset that I would rather spend money on my bike rather than a computer. So if you're looking for a basic computer that has speed & cadence, looks good, very readable display, easy to work (& remember how to work it), you can get this computer for about half the price of others.
