Has anyone used this computer? It looks like a nice design but being so cheap I don't if it is decent quality for MTB.

Has anyone used this? If so how do you like it?

....the road riding all this year. No problems at all with the unit and you can't beat the price.

Jg
does the transmitter and computer unit look like they are attached very stable to the bike? So that mountain biking shouldn't affect it?

Probably for the money its ok, but I think you are taking a bit of a gamble. I bought one and loved the big display. After about 1000 miles it started working intermittently. Finally it quit altogether. I talkied to a guy at Performance about it after I tossed it out and he said it had about the highest failure rate of any of their wireless units. He recommended a German engineered unit that he said had been bulletproof. It was about twice as much money.

It was the Axiom A-10 which I think is a Performance Brand. At $35 thats a pretty decent price. After my experience with the db 4lw I went back to a wired unit. The Cateye Enduro 8 is pretty decent. So far I havent broken any wires, plus I thnk you can buy a wire setup separate.
