Rated 5 out of 5 by Buon Cronometro buon computer anche se qualche volta non rileva più i dati senza un motivo apparente..quando si resetta per una nuova uscita cancella tutto tranne i km totali, non mi piace questa funzione 11 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Обычный компьютер. Нормальный велокомпьютер - маленький, много функций, удобный. После использования в велопоходе сломался датчик оборотов колеса, хотя никаких видимых повреждений не замечено. После замены датчика думаю еще послужит. 27 October 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Trip distance is reset after 10 hours' cycling I wanted a simple cycling computer and one in which I could input my total distance cycled to date from my old computer. This seemed to fit the bill unlike the cheaper Cateye computers. All was well for a good while. It seemed robust, measured accurately and was easy to use. But when I went away for a multi-day trip I suddenly found the trip distance had been reset back to zero on day 3. I thought I might have pressed the wrong button combination but then it happened again, and again. I finally came to the conclusion that it seemed to rest after about 10 hours cycling. On checking the instructions I see the max riding time is 9.59.59 after which the riding time, average time and max speed are reset. Nothing is stated about the trip distance being reset, however. I find this a real pain, as I like to keep tabs of my total distance and other stats when we go away for a few days. I contacted the supplier but they either didn't understand my problem (their English is not good) or thought I had a one off. Seems I need to look for another one. 24 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good Only had this for a week or so now. It was dead easy to fit, though I always find the use of cable ties (for both the display and detector) a bit of a cheap cop-out; nor can you tighten them up as well as some of the more old fashioned screw fittings. The magnet also just clips to the spokes, rather than using a screw fitting as my old one did, so I hope it stays put OK. The computer seems to work well for the functions it has, which are more than enough for me. The display is large enough to read easily whilst cycling along, though not illuminated. The only slight criticism I have is that the figures encroach right up to the edge of the screen, so unless you have the angle right you can, for example, mistake a 1 for a 7 or v.v.. For me a big plus over the cheaper Cateyes was that I could transfer in the total distance cycled to date from my old computer. As I said, so far so good. Let's hope it stays that way. 22 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job very well. Brought this computer for my Wife. She does the same course a number of times a week and simply wants to know her ride time. Easy to setup. Did need the user instructions to know which screen and how long to hold the keys down to set it up. 20 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good. I bought this wired computer because my old Sigma wireless would not work with my front light. This model works fine with the front light on. Took me less than 2 hours to study the instructions and fit to my bike. The display is easy to read and control, and starts to work as soon as you move the bike, which is good for me because I sometimes forgot to switch the Sigma on. 14 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great computer What can I say? This is a great computer that's really easy to use while riding and really simple to set up. It does everything you could want from a computer and, there's a bonus, it's waterproof so no need to worry in rainy weather. 25 June 2012
