Strengths:    Lookes great, small, didn't make me look like a nerd

Weaknesses:    Didn't last, after about a year the numbers started to fade and it became difficult to read them. Tried a new battery but no joy.

Bottom Line:   
Maybe I got a bum computer but with all things Specialized...buyer beware!

Strengths:    Cool looking, low profile design. Doesn't make your bike look dorky. Easy display to read.

Weaknesses:    Numbers could be bigger. Mounting is a little cheesy but you get what you pay for. Computer is not removable

Bottom Line:   
The mounting to the fork is with zip ties and it is easy to nudge the reader while taking off your fork or bumping into it. It is easy to put it back in place though. I was also dissapointed to find you cannot remove the computer. For $30 bucks I am happy with it. The numbers are a little small but, unless you are blind you can read them. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't see the point in spending $80 for a computer. It does its job. If I had the money I'd get wireless. I would recommend this to a rider who doesn't lock his bike up anywhere and doesn't mind adjusting it once in a while. For the price, it is a decent deal.

Strengths:    Display is cool looking but not very easy to read while riding. The blinking needle was hard for me to read.A lot of features for the cost.Large buttons make changing mode very easy.

Weaknesses:    Hard to get the sensor and magnet to link up to each other.I hated the way it looked when I had to strap the sensor to my front forks.( Cheap Looking )
My biggest problem with the computer was that the sensor would move around on the bike forks, because of the vibrations of the bike and then the sensor and magnet would not be close enough to each other to register any data. This was a problem for me and I did not even get my bike off road!
I am sending this one back to Specialized and I am going to try the wireless version.

Bottom Line:   
Buy it only if you plan on riding on very smooth pavement.

Strengths:    I can't really find any.

Weaknesses:    This is a very bad design, in every way. The LCD segments of the speedometer are way too small and confusing to look at, with so many functions crammed in. The "analog" clock only runs in 5 minute increments -- why??? It's too large, as wel. Very bad ergonomically...their old design was far superior. The buttons feel cheap and don't always work...do not waste your money on this thing!!!!

Bottom Line:   
See above. I would not recommend this computer to ANYone. I understand what they were going for, but in real-ride use, this thing is a dud.
