Strength:

Set-up fairly standard. Bullet-proof Durability and water-proof. Like that I can set display to show just time and speed alone simultaneously. Only use clock, trip mileage, odometer, and speed anyway. Good battery life, using same CR2302 for both upper and lower units. Most folks dont realize that after changing battery, input of previously existing Odometer mileage can be input to continue the count for the year.

Weakness:

Must set Auto-mode to "on" for all features to work. Set-up instructions are all pictograph and icon driven. A few more text notations could elucidate a few things that one has to kind of stumble through to eventually grasp. Bar mount is OK but lock-in lever will eventually snap off. Have always had to use a piece of looped electrical tape under Cateyes anyway to keep from rattling, so not that big a problem.

Strength:

Durable and Reliable. I have used the MC100 in flooding rains and enjoyable sunlight and it has not failed once! A great computer that does the basics well

Weakness:

Backlight! what backlight? the backlight is normally needed during night riding. Good luck not crashing your ride trying to find the button, and then trying to read the display. Not sure who allowed this feature to be added and be so ineffectual at Cateye, but I bet they are still slapping their knees and laughing about it

great product, durable and reliable. easy to set up once the marcel marceu instructions have been deciphered. A great product for the price.

Dont buy it if you need to see distance on cross country night rides UNLESS you use a helmet light to illuminate the display

This is an excellent computer. It is very easy to set up and durable! I washed it in the back pocket of my jersey and no water or condensation made it into the computer head. Works like a champ!

Strength:

Small, neat, works well

Weakness:

Display is too small for aging far-sighted eyes. Odometer record is lost when you change the battery. Useless backlight, it's much too dim to even be worth fumbling to press the tiny backlight button behind the head unit. Has more features than are needed by a casual cyclist like me. Buttons not tactile enough for easy operation.

I like it, but all I need is a larger display for ease of reading while riding, and surer, more positive toggling to see: time, speed, average speed, trip, odo, and that's all. Tiny button is not very tactile. BTW, I will never want a wired speedo again. Also, wishing very much that it would keep the total miles-record when the battery, a CR2032, is swapped out, instead of losing all memory of its life settings.

Strength:

reliable and fairly accurate. Perfect mount

Weakness:

Backlight is weak. Instruction manual isnt self explanatory

For any rider who likes to have a record of distance traveled, avg speed, top speed, and overall time on the trail- this computer is for you. Many other functions can be utilized as well, i just mentioned a few key ones. This computer has yet to fail me. For the most part, you'll get many many miles out of this computer along with accurate readings. The design has a sharp looking quality too!

Strength:

Everything works as described
Easy to install sensor and pickup works fine

Weakness:

Mounting hardware somewhat flexible specially if you want to push buttons while riding.
Max speed reading is subject to interference then reads nonsense numbers this happens way to easy

Is all the features work but it is immediately disrupted by RF interference and which makes it flawed specially if you need Max Speed.

Strength:

Simple, no wires, easy use, install and setup.

Weakness:

Instructions a bit cryptic.

I need a computer to tell me how fast, how far and how long. This does all of the above perfectly. As far the comment about no stem mount, I mounted it to my stem perfectly as per the instructions. Also regarding the comment about a reviewer's tire size not being listed, there is a chart for inputting your specific tire size if it not listed.

Strength:

Wireless. Durable. Display easy to read. Can be used on two different bikes with different wheel sizes....or if you like me, and have a 2nd *road* wheelset for your mountain bike, you can switch it to wheelset "B" and not have get accurate distances and rates.

Weakness:

Backlight very dim. Button for backlight also hard to find/press while riding. Instruction manual is not easy to follow. Resetting time/distances/averages kind of a pain with the 2-button approach (but you get used to it).

If you looking for a great wireless computer that does the basics....it works very well.

This is the 3rd Cateye Micro Wireless unit I have purchased. I still use the other 2 on my Trek 6700 hardtail and my Trek 1600 road bike. Both have work perfectly since day one and I wouldn't go anywhere now without them on my bikes. Even thought this unit does not have all the bells and whistles more expensive models do, it is perfect for my needs. It measures speed, current distance, total distance, average speed, and elapsed time. I just bought my wife a Trek 7.5 FX and plan to install one on her bike soon.

Strength:

It Works

Weakness:

No Stem Mount

This is THE ONLY computer I have ever used that actually works and gives accurate readings. Only knock I have is that it does have a mount for the stem. It's nothing fancy but I can get an average speed, distance traveled, top speed, and odometer. I don't need anmore features.
