Strength:

Functions are simple and easy to figure out

Weakness:

Installation is a headache. The cord is very long and the wheel magnet has to pass within 5mm of the receiver. It does not work on my bike because it the gap is too large.

Seems nice and simple, but installation is the major issue. Look into other computers instead of this one

I have had a good experience with the BC 400. However, I have lost my instructions and need to re-set my computer. Can someone e-mail instructions to me? Thanks

Strength:

Excellent first computer - basic, uncomplicated, does what it says it will do. Love the readout, especially the alternating time/distance display. Unlike some other reviewers, I found it easy to setup. I only got another because I lost it after I took it off my bike, when I took the bike in for a tuneup. Like one of the other reviewers, I too like not having to press buttons on the go, to get information.

Weakness:

Like I said, it does what it says it will do. If you want more features, you should buy it in the first place. After I lost it, however, I decided I wanted more features.

I liked this computer before I lost it. The Mity 3 that I replaced it with has more features, but is the most confusing piece of garbage I could imagine, I can't even tell the time while riding. If all you want to know is speed, distance, odometer and time - this is the computer for you. For additional information, I'd recommend one of the more feature-filled Sigmas, like the 600 - it's probably what I'll get next!

Strength:

nice rubber attachments, reusable if you want to use it on another bike (versus zip ties), decent size display, good quality plastic

Weakness:

horrible button ergonomics, expensive, no average speed feature!

don't buy it, spend less money on something that does more like a cateye...

The shop where I bought my mountain bike was so kind to fit it for me, so I won't know about how difficult it is to decipher the instructions and fit it yourself.

However, on my way to my regular afternoon ride, fumbling with my apartment key in the one hand and my waterbottle in the other hand I accidentally dropped the computer and . . . it stopped working! As simple as that: the digital display is unreadable and it jumps around in its readings now, from e.g. 9 km (on a trip) to 2.1 km!

From one silly fall! Not exactly what I'd call shock esistant!
