Strength:

Um...no cords! Durable design, easy to read. 2 diameter settings if you have different rims/tyres

Weakness:

Try to change the time! Perhaps slightly expensive (see bottom line)

A great computer but changing some of the settings can be very difficult, if not impossible. Set-up takes about 5-10 minutes. Battery life has so far been great (6 months of use). I'd buy it again, especially if Cateye could enable easy access to change the time, and jump from kph to mph on the go. Price may be a bit high for some, but that's what you pay for a good performing, robust design.

Strength:

reliability, water proof,

Weakness:

none

This is my first wireless computer. It works reliably with no problems. Someone said, it doesn not work in cold weather. Yes it is through, but only when your battery in sender is flat. One hint at the end: take care that magnet and sensor of sender is not to close or in one line, when your bike is not running. Sender sends impulses all the time and your battery goes flat soon.

Strength:

it tells me the time very accurately

Weakness:

it doesn't do what else it is supposed to do

it works fine under laboratory conditions at room temperature. once you take it out and the temperature drops below 12 celcius or so it simply stops transmitting the signal. i cannot possibly mount it any further up on the fork to match the ridiculous maximum distance of 45 cm between the sender and the computer, which makes this unit utterly useless for my purposes. it kind of works on my girlfriends bike though, which is size "small", so it is actually possible to get it to transmit on that one. still, the concept of wireless computers is basicly good, it's just that it also should actually work in reality under not ideal conditions as well. i'm giving lowest ratings since bicycle computers are not rocket science and should not be such a disappointment.

Strength:

Good layout, no wires. I liked the computer until use in cool weather.

Weakness:

Does not work in cold weather! Sensor got broken off by stick. Now I'm looking for a new unit.

This is a good basic wireless computer for warm weather rides. Riding in close to freezing temps will not be recorded. This winter has been very cold, lots of miles went by without any data.

Strength:

Small, easy to read and clear menu.

Weakness:

Setting te Cateye can be a challenge, especially when there's no manual...

Nice and good working item. There are cheaper (and better?) alternatives on te market, but I'm still very satified with it...

Strength:

Easy to read, all the necessary basic functions, battery lasts a long time, accurate when setup correctly. The auto start/stop is great for economizing on battery consumption. Able to switch between road and mtn bike without having to recalibrate.

Weakness:

Looking for an altimeter function. A smaller "pickup" sensor would look better and reduce the target size from prying eyes and flying debris.

This little puppy works well. I have logged close to 7000 miles in three riding seasons. Still using the original battery and only a couple of minor complaints. One is keeping the pickup aligned with the wheel sensor. Occasionally, they go out of alignment and I miss the ride info. Second is having to adjust the time whenever the time changes to daylight savings time and standard time. Basically I am really happy with its performance and durability.

Strength:

Great product that works better than I thought it would. Like the no wires. Like the functions and ease of use.

I have not experienced any of the problems associated with a wireless computer. This was installed on my bike within 20 minutes and has worked fine ever since. If you're going to buy wireless, do not go cheap!

Strength:

The computer was easy enough to fit and set up -- a bit fiddly with the sensor spacers, etc, but all in all no problem. It's proven to be accurate and reliable in all sorts of weather over the last 500+ miles, too. I like how there are no wires, and the sensor is not very flashy as I lock the bike out on the street in London every day at work.

Weakness:

The bracket for the computer is weak, and puts the computer in a vulnerable spot. My first of these computers shattered when I got in an accident, which was a bummer that might have been avoided with a different mount design. Also, it's annoying to have to hold down one button for 2 whole seconds to see the clock when you're riding. Why isn't the clock just one of the normal "modes". finally, on-demand back-lighting would be handy for riding at night.

Great computer-- bought a second one when the first got smashed.
