Strengths:    Attractive design, reasonable price

Weaknesses:    Doesn't like nasty weather

Bottom Line:   
I was initially pretty happy with this as a budget computer; it provided all the information I wanted about my riding, looked fine on the bike and was fairly easy to set up. My initial grumbles were that the sensor lead managed to pull itself out of the computer on a couple of early rides, despite being under no strain, and that the computer didn't seem to support 2 different tyre diameters, although the manual seems to think it does.

Come the onset of winter, however, I've been much less sure of it - on two occasions when I've been out in the cold and rain, getting the bike seriously muddy, I've found that it has stopped recording my movement altogether. The computer still works, but just thinks I'm stationary.

I've checked the alignment of the sensor and the wheel magnet, double-checked the sensor lead and so-on, but each time everything has been fine. Bringing the bike home and leaving everything to dry out seems to cure the problem, so I can only assume that water is getting in somewhere.

Perhaps a little grease around the sensor connection might do the job in future? All the same, despite otherwise decent performance it's hard to recommend with a connector that doesn't appear to be up to the task.

Strengths:    the speedial is cool,it show about 4 different functions at the same time, the price was good

Weaknesses:    the mount it usses breaks really easy. if you crash once it will stop working

Bottom Line:   
its a great value if you don't crash it. if the bike falls onto it the mount breaks and the screen goes blank and it wont work. it would be a great computer for road biles but i wouldnt recomend it for mountain biking.
